Xiaomi has taken the wraps off Redmi Note 9 series back in the last month. However, instead of getting a vanilla variant, we got a Redmi Note 9 Pro and 9 Pro Max. The former was globally released as Redmi Note 9S. However, we are still missing a standard version and apparently, the Chinese market will get it first. Today a new device that is part of the Redmi Note 9 family appeared in TENAA. The same device got the 3C certification a few days ago.
The TENAA listing confirms some of the specifications and gives us a good glimpse of the design. If you’re already familiar with the two other Note 9 devices there are just a few differences. The new handset boasts a 6.43-inch IPS LCD with FHD+ resolution. Thanks to the leaked images we can see that it also has a top-left punch hole for the selfie camera. The Note 9 Pro and Pro Max got a center-aligned punch-hole.
Another change in the design is the fingerprint scanner placement. Instead of a side-mounted scanner, we get a rear-mounted one in the vanilla edition. The camera department should be covered by a 48MP main camera in the back, while the front-facing one should be a 13MP unit. While we have no details about the other three cameras in the rear, we probably are looking into an ultra-wide, macro and depth modules.
Unfortunately, TENAA still has no details about the chipset. Rumors indicate that it’s a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, but it still needs confirmation. The device will be available in 3GB/32GB, 4/64GB, and 6GB/128GB configurations. Of course, the microSD card slot and 3.5mm headphone jack will also be present here.
Considering this certification, we believe that Xiaomi will announce in the coming days a launch data. After all, the device has received mandatory certifications and is pretty much ready for a release.
