Redmi 9A Sport is yet another budget smartphone released from Xiaomi in Nepal.

It is also another addition to the Redmi 9 series. Not long ago, Xiaomi also released Redmi 9 Activ, another budget smartphone, here in Nepal. Redmi 9A Sport shares similar specifications with 9 Activ. This phone too was released earlier in India but has only made its way in Nepal now.

This is a pretty basic phone that can only be used for basic purposes and nothing fancy can be expected from it. It has a simple camera setup, a simple processor and a basic storage option. The battery backup of the phone is good though and can get you throughout the day or two. This is the biggest strength of the phone.
