Today, Xiaomi officially posted a teaser of the Xiaomi Mi 9T poster which focused on promoting the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Recall that for close to two years, Xiaomi flagships and even some mid-range smartphones does not use the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The likes of Xiaomi Mi 6, Mi Note 3, Mi MIX 2, Mi 8, Mi 8 explorer version, Mi 6X (mid-range), Mi 8 lite (mid-range), Mi 8 on-screen fingerprint version, Mi MIX 2S, Mi MIX 3, Mi 9, Mi 9 SE, etc. have no 3.5mm headphone jack. Now on the Xiaomi Mi 9T, the 3.5mm headphone jack is back again, and this will probably be a big plus for users who use wired headsets.
In the core configuration, the Xiaomi Mi 9T adopts a 6.39-inch notch-free full-screen with a resolution of 2340 × 1080. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 mobile platform. On the front, we have a 20Mp camera while on the rear, there is a 48MP wide-angle + 8MP telephoto + 13MP super wide-angle triple camera setup. The battery capacity is 4000 mAh. In addition, Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro will also be unveiled at the release conference and this smartphone will be with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 flagship platform. The smartphones will be officially released on June 12.
A number of e-store listings have popped up in the past week with alleged pricing and specifications of the Mi 9T that make it look very likely a rebranded Redmi K20. This smartphone teasers contain some elements of the K20 design and some elements that differ (the rear camera placement) hence we might see some sort of variation in design.
