The Redmi 9C is a budget smartphone that is packed with the MediaTek Helo G35 processor. The octa-core entry-level gaming chipset is aided by up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The device also features a dedicated microSD card for storage expansion.

The Redmi 9C employs a tall 6.53-inch display with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera. The panel supports 720p HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The device uses a 5MP camera for selfies and video calls. The back panel houses a triple-lens setup where the primary sensor is a 13MP sensor.

The remaining setup has a pair of 2MP sensors for depth mapping and macro shots. The device has Android 10 OS which is wrapped around MIUI 12 OS. The device features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for security.

It has standard connectivity features such as a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The battery powering the handset is a 5,000 mAh unit with 10W regular charging speeds.

The Redmi 9C is still one of the potential budget smartphones in the market. However, newer models have been introduced in recent times which brings slightly better features to the table that you can consider.
