- Redmi 9 live images have leaked online
- A new image shows the Redmi 9 in two new colours
- The Redmi 9 is expected to be launched later this month
Speculation has been rife that Redmi 9 series for budget buyers could be launched by the end of this month. And now, we have more proof to back such claims. The phone which has been tipped to launch initially in Vietnam, China, and India, has now seen its live images leak online, ahead of its speculated June 25 launch.
While we still await any sort of confirmation from the brand, the fact that the live images of the device have leaked online is by far the biggest hint that the device will indeed be becoming reality. The leaked images of the device come shortly after the phone's key specs were also leaked to users across social media platforms.
As far as the leaks are concerned, there could be as many as three new phones that we get to see as part of the list -- Redmi 9A, Redmi 9C, and Redmi 9. However, for now, it is the Redmi 9 whose live shot have appeared on SlashLeaks to reveal its two color variants. The Redmi 9, as shown in the leaked image, is shown to arrive with quad cameras.
Shown from the back, the Redmi 9 leaked image also hints that the phone could be equipped with a polycarbonate back. The leaked image doesn't reveal much else about the device, but does show the phone in two different colours --teal and violet. However, media reports suggest the phone could be made available in other colours also.
Redmi 9: Expected specifications
As far as the specifications go, the Redmi 9 has is tipped to bring a 6.5-inch LCD display with a punch-hole and support for up to Full HD+ resolution. Underneath the display, the phone is said to be powered by the Helio G80 octa-core processor paired with up to 4 GB of RAM.
For cameras, rumours suggest the Redmi 9 could get a 13-megapixel + 8-megapixel + 5-megapixel + 2-megapixel quad-camera system at the back, while the front would see an 8-megapixel camera for selfies. The phone is also tipped to feature a fingerprint reader is available on the side of the phone. The phone could be powered by a 5,000mAh battery and an 18W fast charger.
While there is no confirmation, the Redmi 9 is tipped to arrive in as many as two variants, with the entry one bringing 3GB RAM + 32GB storage while the higher-end one getting 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. Information on the price is also awaited. Although, if the June 25 India launch is true then we won't have to wait too long for it.
