Xiaomi has just announced the launch of its latest Redmi 9 smartphone in India. The smartphone is here to compete against the likes of the Realme C12, Samsung Galaxy M10s and more. In order to set a tough competition, the phone’s highlights include the Helio G35 processor, 4GB of RAM, dual rear camera setup and more.
