Since the Redmi 9 Power will be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 4G, it is expected to come with a 6.67-inch FHD+ display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 662 chipset. In the camera department, however, the Redmi 9 Power could be slightly different from the Redmi Note 9 4G. Official teasers released by Redmi India suggest the phone features a quad-camera setup on the back, as opposed to the triple-camera setup on the Redmi Note 9 4G.

The Redmi 9 Power will rival some of the best cheap Android phones currently on sale in the country, including Realme Narzo 20, Moto G9 Power, and Samsung's Galaxy M11.
