The source does suggest that the Redmi 9 will house a 6.6-inch HD+ (720P) display with a dot-notch finish and a 2.5D curved tempered glass protection. Even the entry-level model is expected to offer 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, which is a huge upgrade compared to the 3GB/32GB memory configuration on the Redmi 8.

The smartphone is most likely to offer dual SIM card slots with support for 4G LTE and VoLTE on both slots along with a dedicated microSD card for additional storage expansion. Additionally, the phone is likely to offer Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band W-Fi support as well.

Considering the launch time-frame, the Redmi 9 is likely to enter the market with MIUI 11 based on Android 10 OS. The device is most likely to offer a double or even a triple camera setup, probably with a dedicated ultra-wide angle lens, similar to the Redmi Note 8.

Compared to the Redmi 8, the Redmi 9 is expected to offer improvements in almost all the aspects. And this is going to be reflected in the price tag as well. Considering the leaked hardware upgrades, the Redmi 9 might cost at least Rs. 1,000 more than the Redmi 8. The Redmi 8 was launched in India for Rs. 7,999 and the Redmi 9 is likely to cost Rs. 8,999 in India.
