Xiaomi Redmi 9 Power will officially be renamed Redmi Note 9 4G with an additional camera

Xiaomi today unveiled a new smartphone called the Redmi 9 Power, but it’s not an entirely new smartphone. It’s a Redmi Note 9 4G that was launched in China last month with an additional 2MP macro camera.

This means that the Redmi 9 Power has a Snapdragon 662 SoC and runs Android 10 with MIUI 12 at the top. The smartphone has 4 GB of RAM on board and two storage options: 64 GB (UFS 2.1) and 128 GB (UFS 2.2). However, it also has a dedicated slot for a microSD card, which allows memory expansion by up to 512 GB.

The Redmi 9 Power is based on a 6.53-inch FullHD + LCD with a notch for the 8-megapixel selfie camera. On the back of the smartphone with an anti-fingerprint texture and pattern similar to the Realme C3, there is a quad camera setup consisting of a 48MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP depth and 2MP macro unit.

The smartphone operated with Snapdragon 662 is equipped with AI Face Unlock and a fingerprint reader attached to the side for unlocking without a password. The entire package is powered by a 6,000 mAh battery that is charged with up to 18 W via a USB-C port.

Interestingly, instead of 18W, Xiaomi shipped a 22.5W power adapter with the box.

Other highlights of the Redmi 9 Power include a 3.5 mm headphone jack, stereo speakers, splash guard, IR blaster and support for reverse charging.

The Redmi 9 Power is available in the colors Blazing Blue, Electric Green, Fiery Red and Might Black. The 64 GB version costs INR 10,999 (USD 150 / EUR 120). When you spend 1,000 INR ($ 14 / EUR 11) more, you get double storage.
