The Redmi 9 or Redmi Note 9 series could be on the way soon.

Update, February 6 2020 (2:10AM ET): Redmi India has confirmed an event on February 11, and it will launch a phone with a 5,000mAh battery, textured rear cover, and dual rear cameras.

The company has also teased a new device category at the event, with signs pointing to this device being a Redmi-branded USB-C power bank. You can check out the full story over here.

Original article, February 3 2020 (2:33AM ET): The Redmi brand is synonymous with quality budget phones, offering plenty of bang for your buck. We’ve already seen the Redmi 8 and Redmi Note 8 series in the second half of 2019, but it looks like we could get more devices very soon.

Xiaomi global vice-president Manu Kumar Jain has teased the imminent launch of new Redmi devices on Twitter. We also get a video that doesn’t tell us much, save for the fact that the devices are “coming soon.”

The tweet and video clearly don’t give us many clues, but February 2019 saw the Indian launch of the Redmi Note 7 series. Going by this timetable, we therefore expect the Xiaomi sub-brand to launch the Redmi Note 9 family.

We’re not quite sure what to expect from the Redmi Note 9 series, but the Redmi Note 8 offered a 48MP quad rear camera setup and a Snapdragon 665 processor. Meanwhile, the Pro model delivered a 64MP quad rear camera combo and Helio G90T processor.

We also saw the Redmi 7 series launching in China back in March 2019, before coming to India in April 2019. So there’s a chance we could see the Redmi 9 series β€” either as part of the Note family launch or on its own.

91Mobiles reported that the Redmi 9 will offer the new MediaTek Helio G70 processor, citing industry sources. This would make for a major upgrade over the Redmi 8’s Snapdragon 439 chipset, offering more powerful CPU cores and a better GPU.
