edmi 9i is launching next week on Tuesday, September 15. Although the company has done its share to build hype around the Redmi 9i, there is always something extra that the rumour mill has to give. Ahead of the launch next week, the price of storage variants and the colour options for the Redmi 9i have leaked. And it looks like Redmi is aggressively countering Realme with loads of smartphones. The Redmi 9i will be the third one in the series after Redmi 9A, Redmi 9, and Redmi 9 Prime.

According to a report by 91Mobiles citing tipster Ishan Agarwal, the Redmi 9i will start at Rs 7,999. This is the price for the base model that Redmi 9i will come in but there is going to be one more model. The report has suggested Redmi 9i will come in 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, 4GB RAM and 128GB storage models. This price seems reasonable considering Redmi 9i will sit between the Redmi 9A, which costs Rs 6,799, and Redmi 9, which is priced at Rs 8,999. The colour options, the report has suggested, are going to be the same as those of Redmi 9A: Midnight Black, Sea Blue, and Nature Green.

The Redmi 9i is listed on Flipkart and Mi online store, which is where the device will be available for online purchase. There is no information on whether offline stores will sell Redmi 9i. You can expect some launch offers to go live with the Redmi 9i on September 15.
