The Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has just launched a new set of affordable phones for the Malaysian market, the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C. The two new Redmi 9 device comes at a very affordable rate and is undoubted the cheapest Xiaomi phone in 2020 right now. The Redmi 9A retails for 359 Malaysian Ringgit (~$84), that is about ₦35,000 while the Redmi 9C which seems to be a high spec version goes for 429 Malaysain Ringgit (~$100), that’s about ₦38,800.
If you’re looking for a pocket-friendly Xiaomi phone in 2020, the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C would be a pretty nice option. Both devices feature a 6.53-inch dot drop display, 2GB RAM and 32GB of storage. The Redmi 9A is powered by an MediaTek Helio G25 gaming Soc, up to 2.0Ghz (octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU) while the Redmi 9C uses a higher Soc, an Helio G35, up to 2.3Ghz (octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), also a gaming focused Soc.
Both CPU’s features a Hyperengine suite like most mid-range and premium Xiaomi phones. This allows for a better resource management and faster switching between WiFi and LTE. A PowerVR GE8320 GPU is used to handle graphics processing on both device.
In the photography department, there is a 13MP triple camera on the Redmi 9C and a 5MP selfie shooter while the cheaper Redmi 9A comes with a single 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie shooter. The cameras are AI-powered and can take portrait shots, HDR, panorama and more.
The two devices are equipped with a 5000mAh battery which is 20mAh lower than other devices in the Redmi 9 lineup. Both Redmi 9 device will run he latest MIUI 12 based on Android 10. You’ll find a rear fingerprint sensor of the Redmi 9C while Xiaomi as remove this feature on the Redmi 9A. That is understandable giving the price of the device, however, I think the company should have added the rear fingerprint sensor on th Redmi 9A since many of it counterpart comes with this feature.
Nonetheless, the two new level-entry device offer a great value for money. Both device will go on sales starting July 7 for the Redmi 9A while the Redmi 9C will be available at the end of July in Malaysia and probably reach the Chinese and India market soon after.
