After the launch of Redmi 9 a couple of weeks ago in Spain, the company launched the Redmi 9A & Redmi 9C today in Malaysia, and as the names suggest, these are even cheaper than the Redmi 9. The 9A is priced at RM359 ($84), whereas the 9C at RM429 ($100). Like the Redmi 9, we are expecting these two to launch in China soon & then in other markets.
REDMI 9A – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
Redmi 9A has a display with a waterdrop notch on the front & a single rear camera placed on the top left. The back seems to have the same textured finish as in the case of the Redmi 9.
The display on the front is a 6.53-inch HD+ panel with 400nit brightness & the phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio G25 SOC. It is the first smartphone to launch with this chipset from MediaTek. There is 2GB RAM & 32GB storage (3GB + 32GB option is there for Indonesian market).
The 9A has a single 13 Megapixel camera on the rear & a 5 Megapixel camera for selfies. Finally, there is a 5,000mAh battery & 10W charging support. The phone doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner. It is surprising that while Redmi 8A of last year had a Type-C port, the Redmi 9A has a micro-USB port.
It is priced at RM359, which translates to just $84 or Rs 6,300.
REDMI 9C – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The Redmi 9C has the same design as the 9A from the front, but on the rear, it has a square camera module on the top left that has the triple camera setup in it. Moreover, the phone also has a fingerprint scanner on the rear. The back has a textured finish for a better grip.
The phone has a 6.53-inch HD+ display & the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset. There is 2/3GB RAM, 32/64GB storage, and a 5,000mAh battery. The Indonesian market gets the 4GB + 64GB variant as well. Like the 9A, the Redmi 9C has a mico-USB port.
The triple camera setup on the back includes a primary 13-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture, a secondary 2 Megapixel macro camera, and a third 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is a 5 Megapixel camera for selfies.
The price is RM429 or $100 (Rs 7,500) for the 2GB variant.
There is no information on the availability in markets outside Malaysia yet.
