A new Xiaomi phone with model number M2002J9E has received approval from the 3C authority of China. It could be an upcoming 5G-ready Redmi Note series phone for the home market.
A well-known Chinese tipster had recently claimed that Redmi is planning to discontinue the Redmi K30 4G phone. Instead of it, it may introduce a new Redmi Note series that will be priced between 1,000 Yuan and 1,500 Yuan. It appears that the newly spotted M2002J9E could be the mysterious 5G-capable Redmi Note phone heading to China as the replacement for Redmi K30 4G.
The 3C listing shows that the M2002J9E is a 5G phone and it may ship with a charger that supports up to 22.5W fast charging. No other details of the phone are available at present.
Xiaomi India recently unveiled the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max phones in India. Soon after the launch, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing took to Weibo to state that the Redmi Note 9 series is meant for overseas markets. He added that the company will concentrate in selling 5G-ready Redmi phones in China.
Since the next Redmi Note 5G phone is said to carry a cheaper pricing, it could be fueled by the MediaTek Dimensity 800 5G chipset. The handset is yet to appear on TENAA. It appears that the phone may go official as early as next month in the home market. Hopefully, more details of the phone will appear in the near future to reveal the identity of the M2002J9E phone.
