Xiaomi Redmi 9A, Redmi 9, Redmi power bank could launch in India on February 11, the company has hinted in a teaser on Twitter. Redmi India has shared a teaser for its new ‘Desh ka Dumdaar smartphone’, which will be the company’s first launch of 2020. Xiaomi has typically used the ‘Desh ka smartphone’ branding for its budget Redmi series and the first phone under this category was Redmi 5A that launched in India in 2017.
So it is safe to assume that Redmi could unveil Redmi 9A at its February 11 event that begins at 12 noon. For those unaware, Xiaomi made Redmi an independent brand late last year. The first smartphone to launch with ‘Redmi by Xiaomi’ branding in India was the Redmi Note 7 Pro in April last year. Now, it looks like Redmi is gearing up to launch its first device of 2020 in India next week.
Xiaomi India also has an event page up on its website with the countdown for the event live. It reveals the phone will be powered by a 5,000mAh battery. It also suggests a display with thin bezels, textured back design cover and a superior camera with a focus on portraits, though exact specifications remain unclear at this point.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi India chief Manu Kumar Jain also tweeted out saying that Redmi will launch two products at the event, so apart from Redmi 9A, the Redmi 9 or Redmi power bank is expected as well. According to reports, Redmi 9 will be powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 processor. However, a new power bank that Redmi put out a teaser video for on Twitter recently looks more likely. Of course, we will have to wait for an official launch to know more.
