Xiaomi is getting ready to launch its Redmi Note 9 smartphone in India. The company has started teasing the launch of the device via the Redmi India Twitter handle.

For reference, Xiaomi unveiled its Redmi Note 9 smartphone back in April globally, however, at the time it did not reveal the India launch details of it.
The teaser tweet consists of an image with a ‘championship belt’ in it. The belt consists of the number 9 in the middle, with monikers Redmi and Note on either side. The company asks its Twitter followers to guess what it’s hinting at. However, the image makes it quite clear that it is hinting at the Redmi Note 9. The belt also consists of a square camera module similar to the one on the Redmi Note 9.
The company has not revealed the exact date of launch, but it has set up a dedicated page for the upcoming launch. The page simply states that the device is coming soon and that it will be ‘Made in India’.
