Last month Redmi launch its much-awaited Redmi Note 9 series in China which includes Redmi Note 9 4G, Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. As expected, the Redmi Note 4G was simply a Poco M3 rebrand with a negligible difference. Earlier last month, the Poco M3 was launched in global markets. Now according to a reliable source, we can confirm that the Redmi Note 4G will be labelled as Redmi 9 Power in India and Redmi 9T for global markets.
The only difference between the Poco M3 and the Redmi Note 9 4G remains to be its cameras. The Poco M3 houses a triple camera setup which includes a 48MP primary camera with f/1.79 aperture, a 2MP Macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. Whereas, the Redmi Note 9 4G houses a triple camera setup which includes a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP depth sensor. As you can clearly, see that the Poco M3 misses out the important ultrawide sensor.
Redmi 9 Power for India
Earlier today, tipster Mukul Sharma tweeted a leak which says that the Redmi Note 9 4G has been listed on Google Supported Devices list but the device is labelled as Redmi 9 Power. So far the Redmi Note 9 4G has four model numbers: M2010J19SC, M2010J19SG, M2010J19ST, and M2010J19SI. The model number M2010J19SI was specifically listed as Redmi 9 Power. The device retains the same “lime” codename as Redmi Note 9 4G. Also, it’s worth mentioning that the rename is very much logical in India as it won’t be mixed up with the older Redmi Note 9 smartphone.
Redmi Note 10 4G will likely launch in India as the Redmi 9 Power. The Indian variant of the device (M2010J19SI) has been listed on the Google Supported Devices list. It actually makes sense, as the device will feature a SD662 processor.#Xiaomi #Redmi9Power pic.twitter.com/CKqTMNtpX8

Redmi 9T for global markets
Whereas, models such as M2010J19SG, M2010J19ST will be sold as Redmi 9T in global markets according to tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore. The device will feature 48MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. Unlike the other models that come with a triple camera setup. However, it seems rest of the specifications will remain the same.
Redmi Note 9 4G: Specifications
The Redmi Note 9 4G is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC. It is also coupled with up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB internal storage based on UFS 2.2 storage. Further, you can also expand the storage via a dedicated microSD card slot which is expandable up to 512GB.
Moving towards the front, the device flaunts a 6.53″ FHD+ LCD display along with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. For optics, the device is equipped with a triple camera setup which includes a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP depth sensor. Whereas, at the front, the device houses an 8MP camera for selfie.
Lastly, the device draws its power from a massive 6000mAh battery which supports 18W quick charge. Additionally, the company also included features such as a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm headphone jack, dual speakers, IR blaster. Whereas, for connectivity, it features Dual SIM support, VoLTE support, Bluetooth 5.1, and Wi-Fi.
We can expect the same specification for the upcoming Redmi 9 Power and Redmi 9T with slight differences in cameras. However, all these are mere assumptions because an official statement hasn’t come from the company’s end.
