The Xiaomi Redmi 9 reportedly arriving on June 25 has been listed on online retailer Lazada’s Filipino site with its images, specs, and pricing.
The specs listed on the e-commerce website align well with previous rumors, meaning the Redmi 9 comes with a Helio G80 SoC under the hood and has two memory versions – 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. There’s also a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Redmi 9 is built around a 6.53″ FullHD+ display that has a notch up top for the 8MP selfie camera. The back of the smartphone, that has a textured finish and looks like a combination of the Redmi K30 and Redmi Note 8 Pro‘s back panels, is home to a quad camera setup comprising a 13MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro and 2MP depth sensor units.
The Redmi 9 comes in three colors and packs a 5,020 mAh battery which draws power through a USB-C port at up to 18W.
Other highlights of the Redmi 9 include a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, AI Face Unlock, IR Blaster, dual SIM support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The 3GB/32GB version is priced at PHP6,990 ($140/125) and the 4GB/64GB at PHP7,490 ($150/135). At the time of writing this, the 32GB version is available for purchase in a flash sale.
That’s surprising since Xiaomi’s Philippines branch hasn’t made any official announcements about the Redmi 9 at the time of writing this, meaning the retailer likely jumped the guns and an official announcement isn’t too far away.
Thanks for the tip!
