Redmi’s latest budget offering is tipped to launch with Helio G25 SoC and quad cameras on its rear.
A purported Xiaomi catalog for the Philippine market has revealed that the Redmi 9A could soon be released in the said region. The phone’s alleged brochure, which was spotted by a local online publication, also showed the products from the Chinese smartphone giant that are scheduled to arrive from July to August this year.
Helio G25 and 6.53-inch Dot Drop screen
Ultimately, the brochure also revealed the Redmi 9A’s key specifications, alongside a placeholder image that outed the handset’s design.
Accordingly, the Redmi 9A is set to be powered by MediaTek’s Helio G25 chipset, a processor whose CPU is clocked at 2.0GHz. The phone is also shown to feature a 6.53-inch Dot Drop display, with an HD+ resolution. The accompanying notch should house a 5MP front-facing snapper.
Around the back of the phone is a 13MP camera with an LED flash. As per the image, the device’s rear panel design will boast a Redmi logo and a blue color. The design, it seems, reflects that of the Redmi 8A.
The catalog of the Redmi 9A also revealed that the phone would be launching with a massive 5,000mAh battery capacity. However, the brochure didn’t come with any detail on whether the phone would support fast wired charging or not.
Previous rumors suggest that the Redmi 9A would arrive, supporting a height of 164.85mm and a width of 77.07mm. A separate report also tipped that the phone would launch with support for 10W charging, which is basically the conventional way of charging at the moment. In the RAM department, the device is also pegged to launch with 3GB.
Cheaper than the regular Redmi 9
Unfortunately, the catalog did not tip any details surrounding the Redmi 9A’s official pricing. Expect the phone’s price to be cheaper than the regular Redmi 9. Currently, the Redmi 9 is priced at PHP 6,990.
Talking about the forthcoming products, Xiaomi is set to launch Mi TV Stick, which features a built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant, the Mi Outdoor Watch, and a slew of household accessories. The said watch carries a price tag of PHP 990.
Meanwhile, the POCO F2 Pro, plus the Black Shark 3 series, and the recently-minted Mi Smart Band 5 are also among the expected products to be released in the Philippines.
