Xiaomi Redmi 9 Power goes official as a rebranded Redmi Note 9 4G with an additional camera

By | December 17, 2020

Xiaomi today introduced a new smartphone called Redmi 9 Power, but it’s not an entirely new smartphone. It’s a Redmi Note 9 4G launched in China last month with an additional 2MP macro camera.

This means the Redmi 9 Power has a Snapdragon 662 SoC and runs Android 10 with MIUI 12 on top. The smartphone comes with 4GB RAM on board and has two storage options – 64GB (UFS 2.1) and 128GB (UFS 2.2). But it also comes with a dedicated slot for a microSD card, allowing storage expansion by up to 512GB.

The Redmi 9 Power is built around a 6.53″ FullHD+ LCD that has a notch for the 8MP selfie camera. The back of the smartphone, which has an anti-fingerprint texture and a pattern similar to Realme C3‘s, is home to a quad camera setup comprising a 48MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP depth and 2MP macro units.

The Snapdragon 662-powered smartphone comes with AI Face Unlock and a side-mounted fingerprint reader for password-less unlocking, and fueling the entire package is a 6,000 mAh battery that charges through a USB-C port at up to 18W.

Interestingly, Xiaomi has bundled a 22.5W power adapter with the box instead of 18W.

The rest of the highlights of the Redmi 9 Power include a 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo speakers, splash proofing, IR Blaster, and reverse charging support.

The Redmi 9 Power is offered in Blazing Blue, Electric Green, Fiery Red, and Might Black colors. The 64GB variant is priced at INR10,999 ($150/€120) and shelling out INR1,000 ($14/€11) more will get you double storage.
