Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 9 series made its global debut back in March in India. Since then, Xiaomi has launched five devices in this series in global markets. But, the company didn’t launch any Redmi Note 9 series in China, as the company is committed to release 5G devices only in the mid-range segment in the Chinese market.
Now, the Redmi Note 9 series is finally making its way to China and General Manager of the Redmi brand Lu Weibing has teased upcoming Redmi Note 9 series smartphones in a new Weibo post.
According to Chinese leakster Digital Chat Station and TENAA listing, there are two phones in the pipelines – Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G Standard Edition and Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G High Edition with model numbers M2007J22C and M2007J17C have appeared on TENAA certification.
These devices are said to launch as Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. Ahead of this, the pricing of the smartphones have now been tipped by another leakster.
