Earlier this week, Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, officially released the Redmi 9 in Spain. At the time of its release, this smartphone arrived with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. While the 3GB+32GB version sells for 149 euros ($168), the 4GB+64GB version goes for 179 euros ($201). However, a smartphone with the same model number M2004J19G recently appeared on TENAA. This listing suggests that this smartphone will be arriving in China soon. However, there are some tweaks to the TENAA listing.
The model number shows that this device is obviously Redmi 9. However, unlike the global version, the Chinese version will feature a 6GB of RAM and 128 GB storage option. Furthermore, the TENAA listing revealed that this device will be available in blue, black, green, pink, red, and white. Please note that all these colours may not be available on its launch date. Apart from this change, all other aspects of this smartphone are the same as the Redmi 9. However, it is possible that this smartphone will not arrive in China as Redmi 9. It may take a different name as we have seen in the past.
