The design of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A

Firstly, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A will come with a 6,53 inch display screen which on average is a good big display screen. Many smartphones are based on this length and they not to big or too little.

Xiaomi Redmi 9A textured design will be made out of materials that prevents fingerprints to stay on the smartphone. I know I had to have a smartphone that shows all my fingerprints on it. It just makes the smartphone feel dirty and you constantly want to clean it. Thus, it is good Xiaomi thought about it and find a solution for the problem.



Xiaomi Redmi 9A will be available in three different colors as you can see in the moving illustration above. The colors are the following:

  • Carbon Gray (Midnight Black)
  • Sky Blue (Sea Blue)
  • Ocean Green (Nature Green)

For me, the Sky Blue and the Ocean Green colors stand out for me the most. All smartphones have the color black. Thus, would always prefer a brighter and different color in order my smartphone stand out about other users smartphones. What is your opinion or preference in these three colors?


Key Features of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A

Now of course, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A has some key features that make them unique. We can divide those key features into the following categories:

  • Camera Features
  • CPU running on
  • Battery Life


A) Camera Features:

As you can see in the illustration above, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A has the basics camera features which all current new smartphones have. Those camera features are the following:

  • Palm Shutter
  • AI Face Unlock
  • Funky video creator

With these camera features you can be ensure you will be able to take beautiful pictures no matter if it is by the front camera or the rear camera. Plus the screen of the smartphone has a low blue light to ensure your eyes do not get damaged for long time use. Good when you watch videos or other stuff on your smartphone.



The Xiaomi Redmi 9A has a MediaTek Helio G25 CPU chipset installed. This chipset ensures that you do not experience any lagging on your smartphone no matter if you are busy on the smartphone or not. Plus this chipset includes a system called HyperEngine that helps smooth gaming experience for gamers.


C) Battery Life:

The battery of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A is known to last for long time. It is said it will still have its full capacity after 2.5 years excessive use. That is a big statement and good for users that want a smartphone that will last for a very long time.

Some users cannot afford to change a smartphone in a short time period or prefer to have a smartphone that will last a long time. I know of some users that prefer to have a smartphone that will satisfy their needs for 5 years. Yes, you heard me right. Thus, this is very good for users that want a smartphone that will have a long-lasting battery.


Specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A


Let us discuss about each specification regarding the Xiaomi Redmi 9A.

  • Display Size – As mentioned in the design section already. The Xiaomi Redmi 9A has a display screen size of 6,53 inches. This is good overall display screen size which is not too big or too small.
  • Weight – The weight of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A is not too heavy or to carry.
  • Chipset – As mentioned in the key features section, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A is installed with a powerful chip to ensure no lagging will occur. Sadly, it does not have 5G network capabilities.
  • Front Camera – Earlier we discussed about the key camera features the Xiaomi Redmi 9A will have. Even though those camera features are great to have, the megapixels for the front camera lens is very low. Thus, will result good average quality selfie photos and not the best in the market.
  • Rear Camera – Same as the front camera category. Great camera features, but the megapixels of the rear camera lens is very low compare to other great camera smartphones. Thus, you will only get average good quality photos from the Xiaomi Redmi 9A.
  • RAM – There are three RAM memory size options to choose from for the Xiaomi Redmi 9A. However, all three RAM memory size only offer average good processing speed. Thus, you might experience applications take too long to open or function slowly. Most new smartphones with good RAM memory size offer at least 6GB RAM to ensure fast processing speeds on your smartphones.
  • Storage – Same as the RAM memory size category, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A has three on board storage memory size to choose from. I would say only the one on board storage memory size is the best to select and that is the 128GB as many users like to a lot space to store their things on their smartphones. The other options are too little. Even though you can expand the storage memory with an external memory card, why not just have the biggest on board storage memory for the get go?
  • Battery Capacity – The Xiaomi Redmi 9A has a good battery capacity that will last more than two days before having the need to recharge it with power. That is good for users that needs a smartphone that can last for long time without power. Sadly, the charging speed is very slow for Xiaomi Redmi 9A as it is still using micro USB plugin port. Micro chargers aren’t fast compare to type C chargers. Thus, I would suggest make sure when your smartphone needs to charge, you can be without it for a while.


Retail cash price assumption for the Xiaomi Redmi 9A

The retail cash price for the Xiaomi Redmi 9A would be the following in different three currencies:

As you can see, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A is very affordable for any user to purchase it. Just remember, this is a retail price assumption and prices may differ when the on board storage or RAM memory becomes more.



The Xiaomi Redmi 9A has beautiful smartphone design that does not leave fingerprints around the back of the smartphone. Plus it is available in three different beautiful colors that satisfy users that want a smartphone that stands out above other smartphones.

The Xiaomi Redmi 9A also has handy key features especially in the camera specs category. Sadly its cameras’ lenses for both the front and the rear does not have enough megapixels to take the best photos in the smartphone industry like the Samsung S21 Ultra or Xiaomi Mix 4. Thus, if you are looking for the best camera smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi 9A is not for you.

Even though the Xiaomi Redmi 9A has a great chipset and CPU, the RAM memory size options it offers is very low. Thus, you will still experience some applications struggle to open or take a while to function. They should at least offered a 6GB RAM memory size option to ensure no lagging completely. Useless to have a great chipset, but low RAM memory size that cannot handle a lot of tasks same time.

The battery life and capacity of the Xiaomi Redmi 9A stand out as the battery will take a while before having the need to recharge. Plus the battery life will not reduce its value from the start of use till 2.5 years later. That is really good for users that love to have a smartphone for a long time before having a new one.

The one downside is the charging speed. The Xiaomi Redmi 9A still makes use of a micro charger which cannot compete against type C chargers. Thus, when your smartphone gets flat, remember it will take a while to recharge it with power.

The Xiaomi Redmi 9A isn’t the best smartphone. However, does offer good features at a low retail price point which makes it affordable for all users to purchase it. Thus, if you have a tight smartphone budget and need a smartphone that will last for a long time? Then the Xiaomi Redmi 9A is the answer for you.
