Xiaomi recently announced that the Redmi 9 Power India launch event is scheduled for December 17th. Xiaomi also released some key specifications through many teasers, but they haven’t revealed the design. The smartphone is speculated to come as a rebranded version of the recently launched Redmi Note 9 4G in China.
But the folks at 91mobiles can confirm that the Redmi 9 Power will not be the same as per the Redmi 9 Power’s camera setup image shared by popular Indian tipster Ishan Agarwal with them. The Redmi 9 Power will have ‘Super Quad Camera’ setup instead of triple cameras in a rectangular module at the back.

As per the rumours, the only difference between Redmi Note 9 4G China and Redmi 9 Power will be the additional 2 MP/5 MP(Probably 2 MP) Macro Camera on the Redmi 9 Power.

Design and Display
The Redmi 9 Power design will include a textured polycarbonate back with rectangular camera module at top left corner on the back. The camera module will house three vertically aligned cameras plus an additional sensor on the side, just below the LED flash module. The overall weight of the device will be below 200gram(~198g)
On the front, Redmi 9 Power packs a 6.53 inches FHD+ IPS LCD Panel with 400nits brightness and water-drop notch for the selfie camera.

In terms of storage option, Redmi 9 Power will come with 4GB+64GB and 4GB+128GB option even though the storage option in china is entirely different.
Redmi 9 Power comes with a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 512GB. The Adreno 610 GPU will handle graphical tasks of the mobile, and on the software front, it is likely to boot Android 10 based on MIUI 12 skin.

Connectivity-wise, the mobile supports 4G VoLTE, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, BLE 4.2 and Infra-Red remote control.
