The phone comes with a triple rear camera setup with a 13mp main camera with f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP macro sensor with f/2.4 lens, and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 lens. There’s a 5MP camera with f/2.2 aperture for selfies and video calling.
Redmi 9C also includes a 5,000mAh battery with support for 10W fast charging. Connectivity options include 3.5mm audio jack, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and Micro USB port for charging. For security, the Redmi 9C has a rear fingerprint sensor and support AI face unlock. It measures 164.9×77.07x9mm and weighs 196 grams.
