As scheduled, Xiaomi has officially announced a pair of new entry-level smartphones known as the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C in Malaysia this morning.
Let’s kick start with the most affordable model – Redmi 9A. This device features a 6.53-inches dewdrop-notch display which offers a decent HD+ screen resolution.
In terms of photography, the Redmi 9A features a single 13 megapixels rear camera, alongside a 5 megapixels selfie camera at the front. Its rear camera will be assisted by a LED flash located slightly below it.
Under the hood, the Redmi 9A will be the first smartphone in the world to debut with the brand new MediaTek Helio G25 SoC which will be supported by 2GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage which is further expandable via a microSD card.
To keep its lights on, the Redmi 9A will be fitted with a massive 5,000mAh battery at the helm which could support long hours of usages. It is priced at an affordable price tag of just RM359 (US$84/ INR6,300).
The Redmi 9C as we know, will be a slightly bumped up model. The device will continue to maintain the same 6.53-inches HD+ dewdrop-notch display at the front.
In its imaging department, the Redmi 9C features a triple-cameras setup on its rear panel consisting of a 13 megapixels main camera along with an ultra-wide lens and a depth helper. This will be completed with a 5 megapixels selfie camera at the front.
The Redmi 9C will be driven by an upgraded MediaTek Helio G35 – the same SoC which could be found in the newly announced Realme C11. It will have 2GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage in its memory department as well.
Just like the Redmi 9A, the Redmi 9C also has a huge 5,000mAh battery which does not have any fast-charging capability. In the Malaysian market, the Redmi 9C is priced at RM429 (US$100 /INR7,530)
