Recalling the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C
Both the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C feature a waterdrop notch design with noticeable bezels, and a plastic body. On the rear, the 9C has a triple-lens camera and a physical fingerprint reader while the 9A gets a single camera and misses out on a fingerprint scanner.
However, both the handsets bear the same 6.53-inch HD+ (720x1600 pixels) LCD display.
For the shutterbugs and selfie lovers
The Redmi 9C comes with a triple rear camera setup comprising a 13MP (f/1.8) main sensor, a 5MP (f/2.4) macro camera, and a 2MP (f/2.4) depth lens. On the other hand, the Redmi 9A has a single 13MP (f/1.8) camera on the rear side.
For selfies and video calling, both the handsets sport a 5MP (f/2.2) front-facing camera.
Under the hood
The Redmi 9C is powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 processor, whereas the Redmi 9A comes with a MediaTek Helio G25 chipset. Both the handsets offer 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
Under the hood, they run on Andriod 10-based MIUI 12 and pack a 5,000mAh battery.
