Xiaomi has another Redmi phone in its lineup for the Philippine market. But no, it’s an entirely new device.

The company has announced that the Redmi 9C 2021 is now available for purchase at Authorized Mi Stores and Mi Zones in the country. The unit comes with a suggested retail price of P6,290 (around $126 converted).

So how is it different from the Redmi 9C that was launched in the Philippines a year ago? It’s the memory configuration. The Redmi 9C 2021 has more of it: 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Recall that the 2020 model came with 2GB + 32GB and 3GB + 64GB versions, selling for P5,290 ($106) and P5,990 ($120), respectively, at launch.

The smartphone likewise packs a big battery rated at 5,000mAh, uses a MediaTek Helio G35 chip, and ships with an Android 10-based user interface.
