Redmi 9

Xiaomi’s budget line of Redmi-numbered phones has lost some space over the past years. The truth is that customers nowadays are much more interested in the Note lineup than the regular Redmi phones. This forced Xiaomi to decrease even more the level of specifications on these devices to the point that it almost became pointless. Let me clarify. Last year, the company announced the Redmi 8A with the Snapdragon 439. The A-phones are the most affordable devices offered by the company offering solid, but modest specs for a low price. The Redmi 8, should, in theory, offer more than the Redmi 8A, however, it came with the very same chipset and battery. The only differences were the presence of a fingerprint scanner and better cameras on the upper model. This year, however, Xiaomi brought the Redmi phone to the place it deserves. The Redmi 9 came with solid specifications and a very affordable price tag.
