Recently, an unboxing video from YouTube blogger, Jermaine Smit, revealed more information about the Redmi Note 9T. The information so far shows that the Redmi Note 9T is almost the same as Redmi Note 9 5G. It comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor, 5000 mAh battery, FHD+, and 90Hz refresh rate IPS LCD screen. This smartphone also comes with a side fingerprint recognition. Looking at the real images, the items in the box include the phone, user manual, USB-C charging cable, and 22.5W charging head. The Redmi Note 9T will be official today.
It is worth mentioning that the Redmi Note 9T does not have an ultra-wide-angle lens. However, it will come with a 48-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth lens.
Redmi Note 9T is coming today
Back in November last year, Xiaomi introduced its highly-anticipated Redmi Note 9 series in China in the form of Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, Note 9 5G, and Note 9 4G. These devices were nothing close to their global counterparts, not even the LTE variant was close to its global sibling. Since their inception, we knew that it would be just a matter of time until these devices reach global customers. The first step was given last month when the Redmi Note 9 4G was launched as Redmi 9 Power in India. Now the company is moving to release the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G and Note 9 5G outside of China.
If the year ended with the confirmation of Note 9 Pro 5G conversion to Mi 10i in the Indian market, the first week of 2021 confirms with the arrival of Redmi Note 9T as a rebranded Redmi Note 9 5G. The company’s Spanish branch tweeted a teaser about an upcoming launch on January 8 at 10 AM GMT, however, the tweet was deleted shortly after. A couple of minutes later, Xiaomi followed with a confirmation of the phone’s launch with a new time – 12PM GMT.
As aforementioned, the Redmi Note 9T is a rebranded Redmi Note 9 5G. For that reason, we are aware of most of its specifications. Unless that Xiaomi comes with a last-minute change. Then we know pretty much what to expect from the handset.
Redmi Note 9T expected specifications
The Redmi Note 9T flaunts a 6.53-inch IPS LCD with 2,340 x 1,080 pixels of resolution with gorilla glass 5 protection. The device also has a top-left aligned punch hole that serves as a house for its 13MP selfie snapper.
The Note 9T is a 5G smartphone and gets its fifth-gen network powers from the MediaTek Dimensity 800U. The device will greatly expand the availability of the Dimensity lineup outside of China. It’s an Octa-Core chipset with two Cortex-A76 cores operating at up to 2.4GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores operating at up to 2GHz. The handset will start with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of Internal Storage. The device draws power from a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support. Other features include GNSS, an IR Blaster, Bluetooth 5.1, 3.5mm headphone jack, and Stereo Speakers.
