The Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi has launched the much-awaited Redmi 9 Power smartphone in the Indian market. True to its name, Xiaomi has packed a mammoth 6000mAh battery pack in its new offering.
Xiaomi known for launching two Redmi Note handsets in a year couldn’t make it in this 2020 year. The company has been still pushing the Redmi Note 9th series both in China and India. Probably, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted its plans to counter the growing popularity of Realme.
Another Chinese Variant in India:
Joining the product line, Redmi 9 Power hits the headlines with a large 6000mAh battery that powers the device with 18W fast charging support and 2.5W reverse charging. For the unaware, the Chinese variant Redmi Note 9 4G makes it to India with a new name Redmi 9 Power.
Interestingly, the new Redmi 9 Power gets a lot of similarity from its latest POCO M3 handset. Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662 chipset, the Redmi 9 Power will certainly attract a lot of competition from Samsung Galaxy M11, Poco M3, Vivo Y20 and Oppo A53.
The Redmi 9 Power has got a TUV Rheinland certification that brings down the low light emission making it safer for eyes. Weighing under 200 grams is a huge plus sign when there are negative reviews surrounding POCO handsets for being bulky.
Redmi 9 Power Specification:
In terms of specification, the Redmi 9 Power sports a 6.53-inch full HD+ (1080x2340p) Dot Drop display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 395 ppi density. It has a max 400 nits of brightness and a Corning Gorilla 3 protection (and splash-proof) on the top. It is to be noted that Dot Drop is nothing but Xiaomi’s version of a waterdrop-style notch.
Powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, Adreno 610 GPU and 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the Redmi 9 Power has got 2 variants based on storage space 64GB and 128GB UFS 2.2 storage. The storage space can be further expandable up to 512GB using a microSD card.
