Redmi Note 9 India launch date is March 12th; Redmi 9 also expected to debut

“The Redmi Note 9 India launch event on March 12th will likely also see the launch of Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi 9 smartphones”

The Redmi Note 9 India launch has been teased officially by Xiaomi with the #ILoveRedmiNote hashtag. The teaser video by the Redmi India Twitter handle features actor Ranveer Singh clearly talking about the India launch of Redmi Note 9 smartphone. It is, however, unclear whether the Pro model will be unveiled at the same event, though that is likely. In a separate tweet, this one by Xiaomi India head and global vice president Manu Kumar Jain, mentions March 12th as the Redmi Note 9 India launch date. Last week, we had reported exclusively that the Redmi 9 India launch will be in mid-March in the country, meaning the budget handset can also be expected to make its debut at the same event.

The Redmi Note 9 series will follow up on the widely popular Redmi Note 8, which is presently sold in India at starting price of Rs 10,499 after a recent price hike. However, not a lot is already known about it at the moment. It is also expected to feature four rear cameras, which may be headlined by a 64-megapixel primary sensor. In terms of battery, the Redmi Note lineup may feature up to a 4,500mAh battery. The overall design language remains in the wraps for now, as do the rest of the Redmi Note 9 specifications.

As for the Redmi Note 9 Pro specifications, not much is know either but speculations suggest the smartphone will come with ISRO’s NavIC geolocation system and feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor inside.

However, we do know the Redmi 9 will be powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 SoC, same as the budget Realme C3 smartphone. Talking of Realme, the Redmi arch rival will launch the Realme 6 and 6 Pro smartphones on March 6th. These smartphones will compete with the Redmi Note 9 and Note 9 Pro in the Indian market.
