Redmi 9 specs leaked

Xiaomi seems to have extended its partnership with MediaTek, because the Redmi 9 will be powered by upcoming MediaTek Helio G70, as per a report by 91 Mobiles.

The chipset will allegedly be less powerful than the MediaTek Helio G90T that we have seen on the Redmi Note 8 Pro. We can only confirm that when the SoC is made official.

The phone will sport a 6.6-inch display with a water-drop notch. In terms of memory the rumour says it will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and may also be available in more variants.
