Xiaomi launches budget-friendly Redmi 9T to kick off 2021

Joining the Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C in Xiaomi's overly-saturated Redmi 9 series is the Xiaomi Redmi 9T.

With the Redmi 9T coming to Singapore, there is practically a Redmi 9 series phone available at every micro price point within the budget-friendly category, which is akin to Xiaomi saying there's no excuse skipping out on a Redmi 9 series handset. So let's get right into the meat of the Redmi 9T, and learn about how it's different from other phones within its Redmi 9 range.

We start with the biggest differentiator. Unlike the other Redmi 9, Redmi 9A, and Redmi 9C phones, the Redmi 9T does not use a MediaTek processor. Instead, the Redmi 9T uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset, which is good news for folks who want higher-quality, entry-level handsets.

Another key difference lies in the Redmi 9T's rear camera configuration. If you can recall, the other Redmi 9 phones all use a 13MP main camera on the rear, differentiated by the number of rear cameras they have. The Redmi 9T defies the convention with its 48MP main camera leading its quad-rear camera setup. Other accompanying cameras are an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor.

The Redmi 9T's display is the closest - specs-wise - to the vanilla Redmi 9. Redmi 9T offers a 6.53-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution) Dot Drop display, further reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Redmi 9T's panel also has certifications like TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Widevine L1 for a more comfortable viewing experience.

If you like big batteries, the Redmi 9T also exceeds the 5,000mAh range found across its other Redmi 9 siblings. Xiaomi gave the Redmi 9T 6,000mAh and 18W fast-charging, on top of including a 22.5W charging adapter in its product box.

The Xiaomi Redmi 9T will be available in Singapore starting from 15 Janurary 2020, with two prices for its two configurations: S$199 (4GB RAM + 64GB storage) and S$229 (6GB RAM + 128GB storage, NFC supported). Both Redmi 9T variants can be found on the official Xiaomi storefront at Lazada and Shopee, and other authorised Mi Stores and retailers in Singapore. Four colours will be available - Carbon Gray, Twilight Blue, Sunrise Orange, and Ocean Green.
