It is truly incredible how leaks, rumors and now even third party vendors are literally ahead of the same Redmi / Xiaomi. In fact, after having witnessed tasty previews on the expected entry level Redmi 9, we can now even already buy it before the official debut, which to date does not even include a specific date if not the one hypothesized on June 25, 2020 then remodeled on June 11, date in which we will witness the debut of the new Xiaomi Mi Band 5.
Oh yes you got it right, Redmi 9 is already available for purchase on the AliExpress store at a very attractive price, also considering the surcharge by the seller, thus confirming the prices that emerged previously, which we talked about in this article. Without turning around too much, Redmi 9 in version 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage in the colors Gray, Green and Purple is available at the price of 135 € while the variant with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage is sold for the price of 155 € always in the same colors listed above.
Both already boast the marketing in the Global version as well as a design and specifications that already make your mouth water by virtue of the price range to which they are placed.
Incredible !!! Redmi 9 already on sale before the official presentation
Recall that Redmi Note 9 adopts a splendid design that recalls the top of the range Redmi K30, then adopting a 6.53 inch display in 2340 x 1080 FHD + resolution, 394 PPI, a real revolution in the low end of the market. The presence of a drip notch for the 8 MP sefi camera is inevitable. The engine of this Redmi 9 will be entrusted to MediaTek's Helio G80 solution which is supported by 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of ROM expandable via micro SD.
Another revolution in the price range is the presence of a Type-C port for recharging the large 5020 mAh battery with support for fast charging at 18W. There is also a Bluetooth 4.2 module, IR transmitter, second microphone for the reduction of background noise during calls, audio jack and WiFi while the NFC chip could be absent, indicated by rumors but not mentioned by any official slide nor by the store AliExpress, or rather it seems that this is only available in the 4 GB RAM variant and not on the 3 GB one, therefore the 20 euros requested as a surcharge are more than justified.
Of course, the photographic sector that will adopt a 13 MP primary sensor alongside an 8 MP wide angle and then a 5 MP macro lens and finally a 2 MP sensor for collecting data in portrait mode.
So the only doubt about Redmi 9 concerns the presence or absence of an NFC sensor, which in case of presence would certainly decree the new entry level as the most interesting smartphone of the year by virtue of quality / price ratio, adding that the terminal will arrive with MIUI Global 0 ROM with future update to MIUI 11, Android 12 out-of-the-box and security patch of May 10.
