Xiaomi, the fourth-largest phone maker in the world, announced its Redmi Note 9 smartphone at an online launch event Thursday. The Note 9 includes a new design and slew of new features for $199 to $249, depending on storage. This follows the unveiling of the Redmi Note 9S in March. 

Arguably the biggest draw of the Redmi Note 9 is its rear quad-camera, which includes a 48-megapixel main camera and another with a 118-degree wide angle lens. The phone also features a 13 megapixel front-facing camera, 18-watt charging and a 5020 mAh battery that the company says can last for two days.

The Note 9 will come in two variations: one with 64GB of memory and 3GB of RAM, and one with 128GB and 4GB. The prices will be $199 and $249, respectively. Xiaomi didn't announce a release date.

Xiaomi didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
