Xiaomi announced the Redmi 9T, alongside the Redmi Note 9T 5G for the global market today. The Redmi 9T brings a number of value-adding features for a very competitive starting price.
Beginning with the screen, the Redmi 9T packs a 6.53-inch IPS LCD of 1080p resolution, just like the more expensive Redmi Note 9T 5G.
In fact, the camera of the Redmi 9T is better than the Redmi Note 9T 5G with the same main 48MP f/1.8 camera and pair of 2MP macro and depth sensors, but with a fourth 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide shooter. The selfie camera is an 8MP one.
Powering the Redmi 9T is a Snapdragon 662 with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. You get a choice of 64GB or 128GB of storage.
The Redmi 9T brings an even bigger battery than the Redmi Note 9T 5G – a 6,000mAh unit with the same 18W charging speed. Xiaomi claims up to 4 years of reliability and multiple days on a single charge from it.
Like the Redmi Note 9T 5G, the Redmi 9T has an infrared sensor, 3.5mm headphone jack and optional NFC.
The only missing feature on the Redmi 9T compared to its newly unveiled Note sibling is 5G, however that’s offset by the aggressive pricing. The Redmi 9T starts at €159 for a 4/64GB model (€10 more for NFC) and goes up to €189 for the 4/128GB model (again, €10 more for NFC). The range-topping 6/128GB hasn’t got an official price just yet. Buyers have a choice of four colors – Twilight Blue, Sunset Orange, Carbon Gray and Ocean Green.
