Redmi 9C launched

Redmi has announced the latest member of the Redmi 9 series. The new Redmi 9C is a lot like the Redmi 9A that it was launched alongside, but packs some superior specs. Read along to check the Redmi 9C along with its specs, features, expected price, and availability of Nepal.

Redmi 9C Overview

Design and Display

From the front, Redmi 9C looks strikingly similar to Redmi 9A. Both feature a 6.53-inch display with an HD+ resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels. There is a waterdrop style on the front of the device that houses the front camera. The panel looks tall due to its 20:9 aspect ratio.

On the back, it lacks the dual-tone color. There is a square camera module on the top left corner. Redmi has included a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that blends in well the color of the rear panel.

Performance and Memory

Redmi 9A has MediaTek’s Helio G35. It is the latest gaming-focused chipset from MediaTek. Like the G35, it is an octa-core processor based 12nm FinFET process. It also features eight Arm Cortex-A53 cores but they are clocked higher at 2.3 GHz. Similarly, the Imagination PowerVR GE8320 is clocked at 680MHz.

The device features 2GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB of eMMC 5.1 storage. Users can expand the internal storage with the help of a microSD card.


The camera is where Redmi 9C excels, at least on paper,  compared to Realme C11 with equally powerful setup. It retains the 13MP primary camera of the Redmi 9A. The primary camera is accompanied by a 5MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. These three cameras are enclosed inside the square camera module, alongside an LED flash.
