Redmi has confirmed that it will finally be launching a new device in India very soon. The company has revealed through a teaser that India is likely to get its third Redmi Note 9 model in the coming days. While the company hasn't announced anything directly, reports suggest this device could be the Redmi Note 9 which made its debut in May earlier in the year.
The biggest hint that the teaser gives away is by showing a championship belt with number 9 and the words Redmi and Note on it. For now, the company hasn't shared an exact date for the launch of the device, but even that is expected to be revealed in the coming days.
Upon its launch, the phone would most likely be presented to Indian buyers as a slightly toned-down version of the Redmi Note 9 Pro which was launched in India a few months ago. The Redmi Note 9 could bring a 6.53-inch IPS panel with FHD+ resolution and a punch-hole housing a 13-megapixel camera.

Earlier, a report by MySmartPrice has revealed that the Redmi Note 9 will be launched in the country in the third week of July, with the 20th of the month being pegged as the most probable date of release for the phone.
To recall, the Redmi Note 9 was launched in Europe earlier at the end of April. The phone gets a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ resolution that's protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 5. Under the hood, the Redmi Note 9 uses a MediaTek Helio G85 chip, which uses a processor with two performance cores and six efficiency cores. The phone is available with 3GB and 4GB RAM whereas you can opt between 64GB and 128GB. You can also expand the memory to 128GB.
At the back, there's a quad-camera system with the same squarish design as the Pro models, but with the black patch extended further down to conceal a capacitive fingerprint sensor. The quad cameras contain a 48-megapixel main camera using a Samsung GM1 sensor that's assisted by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. You also get a 2-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera. For selfies, there's a 13-megapixel camera using an unknown sensor.
Keeping the lights on is a /5020mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. It also gets a 22.5W fast charger in the box for topping the battery quickly. Note 9 also gets a USB-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC for select markets, and an IR blaster.
