Redmi 9C specifications, features
The Xiaomi Redmi 9C comes with a 6.53-inch LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. It ships with Android 10 OS out of the box. Surprisingly, the device doesn’t come with MIUI 12 and instead offers MIUI 11. The budget Redmi phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 chipset. There is a big 5,000mAh battery under the hood.
