Xiaomi has again added to its line of entry-level phones, by releasing the Redmi 9i on the Indian market. The Redmi 9i introduced in India is not the successor to the Redmi 9A released by Xiaomi in August. Instead, Redmi 9i is a new label for Redmi 9A which is specifically marketed in the Indian region. However, the Redmi 9i comes with a slight improvement over the Redmi 9A, especially in terms of storage.

Redmi 9i and Redmi 9A both have two options for RAM capacity and storage media. It’s just that the configuration of the two is different. Redmi 9i comes with two choices of RAM and larger storage media, namely 4 GB / 64 GB or 4 GB / 128 GB. Meanwhile, Redmi 9A offers RAM options and smaller storage media, namely 2 GB / 32 GB and 3 GB / 32 GB. If it is lacking, the storage media can be expanded up to 512 GB via the micro SD slot on both devices.

However, these two phones also share some similarities. In terms of battery, for example, both Redmi 9i and Redmi 9A are supported by a battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh and support for fast charging 10 watts. In addition, they are also powered by the Helio G25 (12 nm) chipset from Mediatek and have a 6.53-inch wide screen with HD Plus resolution. The front screen also carries a dot drop display design.

From the aspect of photography, Redmi 9i and Redmi 9A also have similar specifications, namely a front camera with a resolution of 5 MP (f / 2.2) and a rear camera with a resolution of 13 MP (f / 2.2). Other features brought by Redmi 9i include Bluetooth 5.0, VoWiFi, 4G VoLTE, microUSB 2.0, Micro SD slot, Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by), 3.5 mm audio jack, and LED Flash.

There are three Redmi 9i color choices to choose from, namely Midnight Black, Sea Blue, and Nature Green. For the price, the Redmi 9i in India costs Rupees 8,299 (around Rp. 1.6 million) for the variant (4 GB / 64 GB) and Rupees 9,299 (around Rp. Million) for the model (4 GB / 128 GB). Xiaomi Redmi 9i goes on sale in the Indian market on 18 September.
