While Xiaomi recently announced the Redmi Note 9 5G lineup in China, it might now bring another Redmi 9 smartphone to India. For the unaware, the Redmi 9 series already includes more the half a dozen devices. And, the company is adding another one to the lineup. A listing on Google Play Console also recently suggested the existence of the Redmi 9 Power with model number M2010J19SI. It could be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 4G that was also launched alongside the 5G series in China last week.
Redmi took to Twitter to tease the upcoming launch. While it doesn’t mention the Redmi 9 Power moniker, it shows some metaphors to suggest the performance of a new model that it calls a ‘Power Packed’ device.
