The Redmi 9 has been in the rumor mill for a while. Now, it appears that the launch of the device is close as it just appeared on FCC. The FCC listing reveals some interesting details of the device and confirmed some details already rumored.
The listing shows the Redmi 9 with model number M2004J19G. The highlight of the listing can be said to be the phone’s battery capacity. Just like its predecessor, the Redmi 9 will pack a 5,000mAh battery.
Even though we now know the battery capacity of the Redmi 9, the FCC listing did not give information about its charging capacity. However, there have been rumors that the device will come with 10W charging. If that is truly the case, it would be a major downgrade from the 18W offered by the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A.
Now, that rumor raises speculations that Redmi may be making a move back to using micro-USB ports. The 10W charging speed is usually associated with this old standard. We just hope that is not the case.
The Redmi 9 is also expected to come with a bigger screen than its predecessor. However, it may come with the same HD+ resolution to keep the price low. The device will only support up to LTE networks.
We expect the Redmi 9 to launch alongside the Redmi 10X in China soon. There will most likely be more confirmed information about the device available before then.
