The MediaTek Helio G70 will likely be positioned below Helio G90 series and aimed at 2020 budget smartphones
The Redmi 9 launch is not too far away. The successor to Redmi 8 series smartphones will break cover early next year, as industry sources claim. It’s been told the Redmi 9 will be powered by MediaTek Helio G70 SoC and sport a 6.6-inch Dot notch display. It will at least in 4GB RAM and 64GB storage configuration, though there are likely to be more variants in the works. The Helio G70 SoC seems to be an upcoming chipset in MediaTek’s Helio G series, which was launched earlier this year. It seems the Helio G70 will be positioned below the G90 and G90T chips and aimed at 2020 budget offerings.
While the exact Redmi 9 launch date is not clear, the handset is likely to go official in Q1 in China, quickly followed by a release in India. The handset will have a slightly bigger form factor compared to its predecessor, which ships with 6.22-inch HD+ Dot notch display. as mentioned above, apart from the 4GB RAM + 64GB configuration, other Redmi 9 variants could be on the cards too.
Given the naming / numbering scheme we assume it’s slotted below the G90 in terms of performance, and aimed at more affordable offerings. The Redmi Note 8 Pro uses the G90T, while the Redmi 8 goes with a Snapdragon 439.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone if the Redmi 9 launches with MIUI 11 on board, based on Android 10. And perhaps some slight camera improvements are going to be in too, but so far those details haven’t been outed. Stay tuned, though, for if the next generation affordable Redmi is indeed coming so soon, then we’ll start hearing a lot more about it in the very near future.
