Redmi has announced its new mid-range smartphone, the Note 9T. In addition to that handset, the entry-level Redmi 9T has been announced as well. These two smartphones do look a bit different, and they do deliver somewhat different features.
The Redmi Note 9T is a more powerful device, without a doubt. That handset not only delivers 5G, but also a more powerful set of specs. So, that’s the phone that we’ll talk about first.

The Redmi Note 9T comes with relatively thin bezels, and a display camera hole in the top-left corner. Its display is flat, while a circular camera housing is placed on the back. It delivers three rear-facing cameras.
The phone does include a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom, next to a Type-C USB port. The phone is fueled by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor, which supports 5G. This is a 7nm chip.
A 6.53-inch fullHD+ DotDisplay is here, as are stereo speakers. The phone includes 4GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. A 5,000mAh battery is included, and it supports 18W fast wired charging.
You’ll find two SIM card slots inside of this phone, while a 48-megapixel main camera (f/1.79 aperture, 6P lens, 0.8um pixel size) is included, along with two 2-megapixel units. Those 2-megapixel cameras are depth and macro units.
