Redmi Note 9 will be launched in India on July 20 at 12pm (noon), the company revealed today. After teasing that the phone will come to India soon, Xiaomi has now shared a launch date for the Redmi Note 9. Just like the previous teaser, the company has not explicitly stated that it will be bringing the Redmi Note 9 to India, but the image in the tweet clearly shows the “9” along with the “Redmi” and “Note” branding. The phone was originally unveiled globally at the end of April.
Redmi India has posted the same teaser image that it shared last week on Twitter, but this time it has a launch date. The Redmi Note 9 will be launched in India on July 20 at 12pm (noon); however, the company has not shared weather it will host an event for the same. And, Xiaomi has still not shared any information on the pricing of the phone and that will seemingly be unveiled at the launch itself. For those interested in the Redmi Note 9, the dedicated website has a ‘Notify Me’ option.
Notably, this July 20 date was previously tipped as well.
Additionally, the model number of the Indian variant of the Redmi Note 9 is said to be M2003J15SI as seen on a Wi-Fi Alliance listing.
