Xiaomi already released plenty of smartphones this year, however, they’re just the beginning. Apparently, the Chinese company now is preparing a new mid-range contender for its homeland. The company needs to fill the gap left in the mid-range segment. After all, it has released the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Pro Max in China. The former also got an international release as Redmi Note 9S. However, none of these devices is available in the company’s domestic market. Actually, some rumors were pointing that Xiaomi would skip the Chinese market this time with the Note 9 series. Well, the latest 3C certification seems to prove that these rumors are wrong.
Gizchina News of the week
A new Redmi device carrying M2003H15SC appeared in the Compulsory Certification of China (3C) agency. Worth noting that it bears a similar model number to a device that leaked few days ago – M2002J9E – with 5G connectivity. Worth noting that this model in particular packs only 4G connectivity. Moreover, it is made by the Xi’an BYD Electronics, while the 5G unit is made by FIH. You may be asking what these devices have in common, and the answer is 22.5W fast-charging tech.
While the 5G unit should be launched in China like a new variant of the K30, the newer 4G device should sit as Redmi Note 9. As we mentioned before, the Chinese firm unveiled two Pro variants for the Note 9 series, but we’re still missing a vanilla Note 9. The new device may be the answer, but details are still too scarce to confirm this as an undeniable fact.
