The Redmi 9 Power made its debut in India in December last year and was almost immediately met with a bit of confusion, since it appeared to oddly encroach on the company's Poco M3 market share in an obvious way. The Redmi 9 Power is pretty-much a re-branded Redmi Note 9 4G, with an extra 2MP macro camera thrown into the mix. Still, that made it essentially identical in specs to the popular Poco M3 and even a bit cheaper in its base tier at some retailers, while offering an extra 8MP ultrawide snapper.
That is admittedly a bit of a weird situation, but things might just get weirder still, since according to a reputable insider source, Xiaomi is apparently looking to introduce a 6GB RAM variant of the Redmi 9 Power to the India market. Effectively shrinking the gap between it and the Poco M3 further still, since the latter already has 6GB modifications. For the Redmi 9 Power, though, 6GB will only be available alongside 128GB of storage, making this the highest tier Redmi 9 Power, with an alleged retail price of INR 12,999 ($180). That would effectively make it a bit pricier than the 6GB/128GB variant of the Poco M3, though. At least at MSRP, which raises some practicality questions. Especially seeing how the particular 8MP ultrawide snapper on the Redmi 9 Power is hardly a major draw to merit such an upsell over the Poco M3.
Just for further reference, the Redmi 9 Power currently starts at INR 10,999 ($150) for the 4GB/64GB one and goes up to INR 11,999 ($165) for the 4GB/128GB. It is worth noting that the bigger storage chip is of the faster UFS 2.2 variety, instead of UFS 2.1. Other notable specs on the Redmi 9 Power include a 6.53-inch, FullHD+ LCD, Snapdragon 662 chipset, 48MP main camera, 8MP ultrawide, two 2MP extra snappers and an 8MP selfie. Stereo speakers are also a notable part of the mix and so is the large 6,000 mAh, capable of charging at 18W and delivering power via Reverse charging at 2.5W.
Its clearly Chinese, why you say Indian
actually 9 power got really bad reviews from customers, like bad perfomance, and poor battery life. i don't think extra amount of ram will save this product.
