Xiaomi has brought out the Redmi 9, that’s powered by MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. This is the same silicon found inside the Realme Narzo 10 (review). The two affordable handsets also share somewhat similar battery size along with 18W fast charging support.

Let’s run through the Redmi 9 offerings, closely followed by a spec comparison of the two devices.
