This possible Redmi Note 9 5G would be released in China first in the coming weeks. In addition, the alleged specifications of the device have been revealed on Weibo. The specs were released by the trusted Digital Chat Station leaker, though he didn’t specifically mention the device name in his post. However, a tweet from the other leakster, Sudhanshu Ambhore (@Sudhanshu1414), says that these correspond to the Note 9 5G smartphone for China.
