Redmi Note 9 India launch has been teased by Xiaomi through its Redmi India Twitter handle. The phone was originally unveiled globally at the end of April but the pricing and availability for the Indian market was not disclosed. While the Twitter post by Redmi India does not share those details either, it does state that the phone will be launched in India soon. And while the company has not exactly stated that it is the Redmi Note 9 that it is talking about, the post makes it pretty clear.
The image in the tweet by Redmi India shows a ‘championship belt’ with a “9” in the middle with “Redmi” and “Note” on either side. Even though it asks fans to guess what it’s hinting at, the image makes it quite clear that it is in fact the Redmi Note 9. And, besides the name, the belt also has what seems to be a square camera module in the same orientation and shape as seen on the Redmi Note 9. While the company has not shared an exact date for the India launch, it has set up a dedicated page for the event, details of which should be made clear in the coming days.
This tweet comes after a recent report that claimed Redmi Note 9 would most probably launch in India on July 20. Further, a Wi-Fi Alliance listing from May hinted at the Indian variant of the Redmi Note 9 and its model number M2003J15SI, suggesting that the launch may be near. However, as mentioned before, Xiaomi itself has not shared an exact date for the Indian launch.
