Talks about the Redmi K20/Pro, the Xiaomi Mi 9T and the Mi 9T Pro have been one of the hottest topics since a few days now. The K20 went official in China back in May, while Xiaomi has since confirmed a launch event for June 12 where it will launch the Xiaomi Mi 9T/Pro, and if you must know the Xiaomi Mi 9T will be nothing new, but a rebadged Redmi K20 for the international market.
Well, ahead of its launch, reports filtering in says the Xiaomi Mi9T is already available for purchase in the Philippines via offline channels. It’s priced at PHP19,500 ($377/€335) for the 6GB/64GB variant and PHP20,500 ($396/€353) for the 6GB/128GB model. And like we mentioned, the device is only currently available through unofficial channels in the country, so you might want to hold off until it is available through the official channels.
The Xiaomi Mi9T and Mi 9T Pro are expected to go official on June 12 with the same specs and design the K20 albeit a change in name. We’ve closely followed the release and sales of the K20/K20 Pro in China, so we know exactly what the Xiaomi Mi 9T/Pro will bring to the table if it eventually arrives as a rebadged K20. Both the K20/Pro flaunt a 6.39-inch 1080 x 2340 resolution screen with the SD 730 / 855 SoC under the hood, while they boast of a triple camera lens comprising of a: 48-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel telephoto (with 2x optical zoom), and 13-megapixel ultrawide lens, and on the front, the K20/K20 Pro gets a 20MP pop up camera similar to the Oneplus 7 Pro.
As you would notice, both the Redmi K20(Mi 9T), and the K20 Pro are virtually the same devices except for the difference in the internal hardware – the more powerful Snapdragon 855 processor with 6AGB RAM for the K20 Pro, and the Snapdragon 730 with Adreno Adreno 618, 6GB RAM for the K20.
