Today, Redmi released a new version of Redmi 9A. The 4GB+64GB is priced at 599 yuan ($85). Thus, we are dealing the cheapest Redmi phone.
Regarding the original intention of Redmi 9A, Lu Weibing said that ‘we have never considered consumer electronics to be luxury, and we have never used price to define the superiority of a product. It is our mission to let more people enjoy the beautiful life brought by technology.’

Lu Weibing believes that the emergence of Redmi can be said to have largely eliminated counterfeit phones on the market. But at present, when we look for smartphones in the 599 yuan price range, there are still a lot of irregular products. The Redmi 9A has the responsibility to rewrite this situation.
In addition, Lu Weibing also cited three reasons:
- What does the 599 mobile phone rely on? Conscience. I learned that some brands use screens, memory, and structural materials left over from years ago to piece together. Although the cost is low, the quality is poor. The market demand for the 599 yuan is still great, and users have higher requirements for the reliability and convenience of the 599 yuan smartphone. Instead, it is more comprehensive to consider a smartphone at this price.
- It is already in the mobile Internet era, but there are still many feature phones still in use that unable to use WeChat, unable to show health treasures during the epidemic, and unable to scan QR codes. It is difficult to adapt to the highly intelligent modern society.
- Although some brands sell phones for 999 yuan, the actual configuration is 599 yuan. With low allocation and high price, they are using information asymmetry to make money.
Lu Weibing said that ‘based on these industry weirdness, we launched the 599 yuan Redmi 9A with 4GB+64GB of large memory. I hope that the quality of the entry machine can be generally improved, promote the progress of the industry, and let all users use good quality products.
From China to the world, from students to parents, from urban to rural areas, from different races and different genders, everyone has the same yearning for smart life. Redmi is to be a real conscience.’
In terms of configuration, the Redmi 9A uses a 6.53-inch full screen with water drop design, a 20:9 ratio, and a resolution of 1600×720. It has passed the TÜV Rheinland low-blue light eye protection certification. Also, it supports the sun screen mode as well as face unlocking.
The machine is equipped with an MTK Helio G25 processor. Its AnTuTu score exceeds 100,000. In terms of photography, the rear carries a 13MP AI camera, while the front has a 5MP beauty camera. The Redmi 9A also sports a 5000mAh capacity battery with a standard 5V/2A charger. It comes with a built-in MIUI 12 system.
