The Redmi 9 Power was rumored to arrive on December 15, but that proved a bit off as the company today announced that Redmi 9 Power will be unveiled on December 17 instead at noon local time in India.
Redmi hasn't detailed the specs of the smartphone yet, but the event page on Xiaomi's official site confirms the Redmi 9 Power will feature a waterdrop notch display and a 48MP quad camera on the back.
The page also hints at a big battery and power-packed processor but doesn't mention any numbers. However, it does confirm that Redmi 9 Power will come with Hi-Res Audio, stereo speakers, and have four color options.
The Redmi 9 Power is expected to be a rebranded Redmi Note 9 4G, which is powered by the Snapdragon 662 SoC, features a 6.53" FullHD+ LCD, and has a 6,000 mAh battery under the hood.
However, unlike the Redmi 9 Power, the Redmi Note 9 4G houses a triple camera setup on the rear, which is a combination of 48MP primary, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP depth sensor units. For selfies and video calls, it has an 8MP camera on the front.
