As we told you yesterday, Xiaomi has presented in Malaysia its two new low-end smartphones led by MediaTek chipsets. Both come to be inexpensive options that are positioned very well in design and in set of specifications for the final price to pay. So let’s see in depth what these two new Xiaomi Redmi 9A and Xiaomi Redmi 9C offer.
Xiaomi Redmi 9A
This modest model seeks to fill the gaps of the Redmi 8A, its predecessor. This time Xiaomi chooses to add a MediaTek Helio G25 processor in this model, since Qualcomm this year has not released a low-end processor that will improve the results offered by the Snapdragon 439.
This Xiaomi Redmi 9A has a 6.53-inch LCD screen with HD + resolution and a drop of water notch. The design is similar to that of the Redmi 8A, if it weren’t for the fact that the rear camera is focused on one side this year instead of being centered.
The Xiaomi Redmi 9A still has cameras with a lens both in front and behind. The selfie camera is 5 megapixels, while the rear lens is 13 megapixels.
The battery of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A is still 5,000 mAh, although it is not clear if it includes some type of fast charging, as was the case with the Redmi 8A, which supported 18W charging. We will have to wait for Xiaomi to release the full list of specifications to answer questions.
This model will have a single version in Malaysia, this being the following:
- Redmi 9A 2GB RAM +32GB Storage, 359 ringgits, about € 75 to change.
This model is new, and previously Xiaomi had never launched a C model from its series dedicated to the low-end.
The Xiaomi Redmi 9C, is one step below the Xiaomi Redmi 9. This Redmi 9C also comes with a MediaTek processor, in this case the MediaTek Helio G35 model, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM that seem somewhat scarce.
Its screen is identical to that of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A, thus being an LCD panel with a diagonal of 6.53 inches and HD + resolution with the drop-shaped notch. This notch stores a 5-megapixel front camera.
The rear and main camera of the Redmi 9C is 13 megapixels. This time, the main lens does not come alone and we find two more lenses for a wide angle and depth sensor for portrait photography.
The Xiaomi Redmi 9C battery is kept at 5,000 mAh of capacity. This model unlike the Xiaomi Redmi 9A has a fingerprint sensor on the back.
- Redmi 9C 2GB RAM +32GB storage, 429 ringgits, about € 90 to change.
Both models are currently only available for purchase on the Malaysian market. We hope that at the end of this next month of July they will be presented in Europe with higher prices than those mentioned and with more variants of storage and RAM.
