On 2 September, finally, Xiaomi will launch its new entry-level phone in India, the Redmi 9A. At the start of last year, the Chinese company launched the budget Redmi phones and since then the pace of phone launches seems to be a bit slow. The phone, Xiaomi Redmi 9A is already available in other markets outside India and it soon will be available in India via Amazon.in. as well.
THE EXPECTED PRICE OF XIAOMI REDMI 9A IN INDIA
The price of Xiaomi Redmi 9A in Malaysia is set at RM 359 which is almost Rs.6,300 for the 2GB RAM + 32GB storage model. The company is most likely to keep the price the same here but as per the rumours, the Indian market will also introduce a 4GB RAM version as well, so in that case, one can expect the price of the phone to start around Rs 8,000.
The Xiaomi Redmi 9A will be packed with a 5,000mAh battery and will have a 6.53-inch LCD display with 20:9 aspect ratio where the panel operates at HD+ resolution. The device will have 2GB RAM and 32GB storage model and will be powered by a MediaTek Helio G25 octa-core chipset. It will be backed by Android 10 OS out-of-the-box. The phone will run on MIUI 11 unlike MIUI 12, which is actually a bit surprising. According to the rumours speculating the company may launch this entry-level phone with 4GB RAM, which might be the base model.
The device offers support for a microSD card slot for additional storage.
As for pictures, the phone will come with a 5-megapixel camera for capturing selfies and a 13-megapixel single rear camera. There will be no fingerprint scanner at the rear panel. As for the connectivity, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A supports a 3.5mm audio jack, dual SIM slot, IR blaster, 4G VoLTE, USB-C, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth 5.0.
