Back in July, Redmi announced the newest member of the Redmi 9 series. The new Redmi 9C is a lot like the Redmi 9A that it was launched alongside in the international market, but packs some superior specs. And now, it has been officially launched in Nepal. Read along to check the Redmi 9C along with its specs, features, official price, and availability in 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.
At the back, it lacks the dual-tone color scheme. You can see the square camera module at the top left corner at the back. Redmi has included a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that blends in well with the color of the rear panel.
Performance and Memory
Redmi 9A has MediaTek’s Helio G35. It is one of the latest budget gaming-focused chipsets from MediaTek. Like the G25, 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 GPU is clocked at 680MHz.
The device features either 2/3GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 32/64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage. Users can expand the internal storage with the help of a dedicated microSD card slot.

The camera is where Redmi 9C excels, at least on paper, compared to Realme C11 with an equally powerful setup. It retains the 13MP primary camera of the Redmi 9A. The primary camera is accompanied by a 2MP macro sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. These three cameras are enclosed inside the square camera module, alongside an LED flash.
Battery and others
Redmi 9C and Realme C11 both feature a 5,000mAh battery. Unfortunately, the phone comes with a Micro USB port for data, charging. Similarly, Redmi 9C has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that the Realme C11 lacks.
