Redmi 9A specifications and renders revealed

As you can see from the renders above, the Redmi 9A will sport a waterdrop notch on the front and a single rear camera on the back. We see the phone in three colours – Midnight Grey, Twilight Blue, and Peacock Green. The Redmi 9A was listed with the “coming soon” tag on Xiaomi’s official Philippines website product catalogue. The budget smartphone will reportedly sport a 6.53-inch HD+ display. It will also get a 5MP selfie camera and a single 13MP primary camera on the back.

The Redmi 9A will be powered by the MediaTek Helio G25 chipset, which is yet to be officially announced by the chipmaker. This is most likely an entry-level chipset that will look to deliver a strong gaming performance. As for the battery, the Redmi 9A will likely house a 5,000mAh capacity. Since this phone will be an entry-level device, we do not expect to see fast charging support. Xiaomi will reveal the Redmi 9A price and official specifications on June 30th in Malaysia.
