Chinese device manufacturer Xiaomi unveiled the addition of two new Redmi smartphones: Redmi Note 9T and Redmi 9T in a virtual launch streamed across its social media channels.
The first 5G smartphone in the Redmi Note series, Redmi Note 9T offers affordability and dual 5G SIM capability. Powered by MediaTek’s 5G-capable Dimensity 800U SoC, Redmi Note 9T promises to be 100% faster than the previous generations. Along with its integrated modem, Redmi Note 9T boasts power efficiency with its octa-core processor and 7nm process technology.
Featuring 5G-connectivity on two SIM cards simultaneously, Redmi Note 9T has 4×4 MIMO technology and antenna diversity. The 48MP triple rear-camera has a 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro lens. It is also equipped with a large half-inch sensor and flagship-level ISP architecture.
Redmi Note 9T has a 6.53-inch FHD+ DotDisplay front and Unibody 3D curved back. Its textured polycarbonate back offers improved grip and resistance from fingerprints and its Corning Gorilla Glass 5 safeguards against costly damage from accidental falls and drops.
Redmi Note 9T is available in Nightfall Black and Daybreak Purple. It will be available at Xiaomi’s official sales channels starting Jan. 11 at an early bird price of €249.
Redmi 9T boasts a 48MP AI quad rear-camera. The device’s 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera accommodates large group photos and wide landscape shots without cropping, while its 2MP macro lens and 2MP depth sensor enable close-up shots with “professional-level” bokeh. Redmi 9T is also equipped with a new movie frame feature that gives photos a more cinematic look and feel without editing. It also sports a new time-lapse feature that offers various speed and duration values for shooting so users can capture creative time-lapse photos without tapping a DSLR or other professional camera.
Redmi 9T runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset. Redmi 9T features a modern and minimalistic design with its rounded corners and an anti-fingerprint textured back. Its 6.53” FHD+ Dot Drop display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 offers a crisp and clear viewing experience and strong protection against cracks and scratches.
The device is available in four delightful color variants: Carbon Gray, Twilight Blue, Sunrise Orange, and Ocean Green. Like the Redmi Note 9T, it will also be available for purchase on Jan. 11 with a price tag of €199.
