Redmi has raised the prices of some of its smartphones yet again. This time, the Redmi 9A models – the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9A Sport – see a price increase. As previously stated, the move is being made due to a shortage of several smartphone components and the subsequent increase in their cost.

The new prices for the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9A Sport are already in effect and are reflected on the Amazon and Xiaomi websites, where the smartphones are sold. In terms of pricing, both phones will now cost Rs 300 more than they did previously.

This means that the base model of the Redmi 9A, which has 2GB RAM and 32GB storage, will cost Rs 7,299, up from Rs 6,999 previously. A step up variant with 3GB RAM will cost Rs 8,299, up from Rs 7,999 previously.

Xiaomi explained the price increase in a statement to India Today Tech. According to a company spokesperson – “The majority of smartphone components have seen an increase in price due to a massive demand-supply mismatch. Unfortunately, due to such market dynamics, a price increase is unavoidable, and it is also causing a price increase on some of our models.”

“At Xiaomi India, we strongly believe in honest pricing and will continue to do our best to make the most value-for-money smartphones for all of our Fans and consumers,” said a Xiaomi spokesperson.
