A dedicated page on mi.com teases the key Redmi 9i features.
The phone features a 6.53-inch HD+ (720x1,600 pixels) display with 1,500:1 contrast ratio, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and 270 nits peak brightness. The display flaunts a teardrop notch.
For photos and videos, the Redmi 9i features a single 13-megapixel camera on the back with f/2.2 aperture. It also has 1080p 30fps video recording with 5MP front camera. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio G25 chipset and offers 4 GB RAM and up to 128 GB internal storage that is expandable up to 512 GB via a micro SD card. It is based on the 12nm process. As I mentioned before, the Redmi 9i's main selling point will be more RAM and higher storage.
Redmi 9i chip pairs to a minimum of 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage depending on the variants, 64 GB and 128GB. Whereas, you can get a storage option including 64GB and 128GB.
The second biggest highlight of the phone is its massive battery. Under the hood, the Redmi 9i packs a 5,000 mAh battery that charges through a microUSB port at up to 10W. It also comes with a P2i coating that makes it water-resistant. The Redmi 9i comes out of the box with MIUI 12 based on Android 10. The new Redmi device will be sold in blue color.
It is a phone which we have seen before.
Redmi 9i will sit between Redmi 9 and Redmi 9A in India. However, the change that Redmi 9i has is the increase in RAM and internal storage. You will be able to grab the phone from Flipkart, and other Xiaomi stores starting September 18 at 12 PM.
It will be available in Sea Blue, Nature Green and Midnight Black colour variants.
