Xiaomi Redmi 9 with quad cameras, 5020 mAh battery launched in Spain, starting at €139
Earlier this month, we learned that Xiaomi’s budget-friendly sub-brand Redmi was prepping up to launch the entry-level Redmi 9 series. While the company had revealed no official information about the devices, leaked live images and certification listings had revealed quite a bit of information. Then, just a few days ago, the Redmi 9 popped up on a Filipino retailer’s website with even more information about its specifications, features, and pricing. Now, Xiaomi has finally announced the Redmi 9 in Spain, confirming all of the details we’d learned so far.
