Gizchina News of the week
A tipster who goes by the name Mukul Sharma has managed to spot the device on the BIS certification website. As per his tweet, the device has bagged the BIS certification with the model number M2003J15SI. Sadly, the listing doesn’t talk about anything else apart from the model number of the phone.
With the appearance of the phone on BIS listing, it looks like the Redmi Note 9 series is inching closer to the Indian launch. At the moment, the country is underdoing lockdown due to coronavirus outbreak. We might see the Chinese smartphone maker launching the lineup once the lockdown is lifted. Xiaomi India is also expected to bring its flagship Mi 10 series in the country. We might see the launch of both the lineup happening at the same time.
Looking at the previous leaks and rumours, we can easily speculate the specifications of the Redmi Note 9 smartphone. The device will arrive with a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display with the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset powering it from the inside. The chipset will be paired with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB onboard memory. The internal storage will be expandable up to 512GB via microSD card.
In terms of optics, the device might arrive with a quad-camera module on the back with the primary sensor being 48MP. Apart from this, the module will consist of ultrawide lens and a macro lens as well. Backed by 5,020mAh battery, the device will support 18W fast charging and will make use of the latest Android 10 OS with MIUI 11 skin on top.
