That seems to be the case as the two devices reportedly use MediaTek Helio G8x chipsets (MT6969T and MT6769V/CT). The 10X 4G has a G85, the Redmi 9 has a G80, so we’re in the right ballpark. Depending on the specifics, we may be looking at the Redmi 9 and a Redmi 9A (a model that doesn’t officially exist yet).
The Redmi 9 still hasn’t made an appearance on Xiaomi’s official website in China, even after its European debut. Of course, the Redmi 10X duo has been selling well, so maybe the company wants to leave it some breathing room before unveiling two more affordable models.
I hope xiaomi stops using punch hole design to avoid releasing more phones with screen bleeding issues
Currently the issue may not only be price but also availability to users and market. Lets take example of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. Released in Mar 2020, you still don't get it in the shops. Even the Online sale is a mockery lasting for less than 2 secon...
What we want is 10X 5G with Mediatek Dimensity 820 chipset in India and that too as early as possible.
