Highlights

  • Redmi Note 9 5G is tipped to be launched on November 26.
  • Redmi Note 9 5G could be launched as Redmi Note 9T in India.
  • The series could bring with itself two new phones.

Redmi is set to launch new Note 9 5G series phones in its home country China. The new 5G Note 9 phones were earlier expected to be launched on November 24, however, a new leak now suggests the phones will be launched slightly later on November 26. This new information comes courtesy of a Chinese tipster on Weibo who suggests the phone will launch on November 26 at an event scheduled for 8pm local time.

Once launched, the phones will remain Chinese exclusive for a while and will eventually launch in India and other global markets as Redmi Note 9T series. Interestingly, this has also been revealed by a tipster Mukul Sharma who spotted this on Malaysia's SIRIM certification site.

Apart from this, leaks have revealed enough about the hardware and pricing of the phones. Recently, a leak had claimed that the Redmi Note 9 5G will be priced at 999 Yuan while the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G may start at 1,499 Yuan.

The difference in price between the two phones will also be because the two phones will feature slightly different specifications. This is because the Redmi Note 9 5G is said to be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC, paired with three RAM and storage configurations - 4GB-64GB, 6GB-128GB, and 8GB-256GB. There could be a 6.53-inch 1080p LCD and a 5000mAh battery on the device. Camera-wise, there could be a 48-megapixel shooter among others on the back and a 13MP snapper on the front.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G on the other hand might come with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. Leaks claim the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G could come bearing a 108MP main camera on the back while the selfie camera could have a 16MP shooter. There will also be an in-display sensor on the smartphone. And while display details are not available, we can expect an OLED panel.

Other than this, little else is known about the new Redmi Note 9 series. However, if the phone is indeed launched on November 26, then more information about the device should start coming in very soon. Including the information about the series' India and global launch which should be announced a few weeks after the launch in China.
