Redmi 9C is the first Xiaomi phone made in Pakistan. The era of Xiaomi phones being made in Pakistan has officially started. Xiaomi has officially started the production of its smartphones in Lahore, Pakistan. Furthermore, Airlink and Xiaomi have collaborated in making this possible.
This is huge news for Pakistani consumers. The Chinese brand will benefit a lot from this step. This means that they are now free of import duties and taxes. Consequently, they will be able to keep their prices down in the future as well. Moreover, the end consumer will enjoy the benefits of value-for-money devices.
Redmi 9C Specifications
Redmi 9C is the first of many devices to be made in Pakistan by Xiaomi. It has a 6.53″ LCD panel with a notch. The notch houses the 5MP selfie snapper. The dimensions of the phone measure 164.9mm x 77.07mm x 9.0mm and it weighs 196g. The processor powering the device is a MediaTek Helio G35. Moreover, the device packs a 5000 mAh battery. Redmi 9C is launching in two new colors; Aurora Green and Lavender Purple.
Pricing & Availability
In addition, it will be launching in a new configuration as well. The device will now offer 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. It will be available online on MiStore and Daraz. Moreover, it will also be available offline through Phonezo, TechSirat, Airlink, and Smartlink. Lastly, the Redmi 9C will be available at only PKR 22,999.
This initiative will help the Pakistani smartphone industry hugely. Firstly, there will be more job opportunities. Furthermore, prices will go down and users will benefit from the better value in the future as well. Xiaomi will be able to grasp the market with a tighter grip. Moreover, they can also export phones from Pakistan which will help the economy immensely. This is a huge step forward in the right direction. I hope more brands follow suit so we can enjoy great devices at great price points and more importantly, made in Pakistan.
