Global technology leader Xiaomi today announced the addition of two new Redmi smartphones: Redmi Note 9T and Redmi 9T. The first-ever 5G smartphone in the Redmi Note series, Redmi Note 9T offers affordability and dual 5G SIM capability. The new kings of mid-range and entry-level, Redmi Note 9T and Redmi 9T were designed to deliver the exceptional performance and multi-day battery life that users crave without compromising on photography capabilities and overall design.
REDMI NOTE 9T
Advanced processor, monumental 5G performance
Powered by MediaTek’s 5G-capable Dimensity 800U SoC, Redmi Note 9T is up to 100% faster than previous generations1. Along with its integrated modem, Redmi Note 9T boasts tremendous power efficiency with its octa-core processor and 7nm process technology.
Featuring 5G-connectivity on two SIM cards simultaneously — a first in the Redmi Note series — Redmi Note 9T is a productivity beast. With 4×4 MIMO technology and antenna diversity, Redmi Note 9T brings faster, more reliable connections — even in congested conditions.
Capture stellar content with Redmi Note 9T’s 48MP camera
Flaunting a 48MP triple rear-camera with a 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro lens, Redmi Note 9T makes even novice users feel like professional photographers. Its large ½-inch sensor and flagship-level ISP architecture allow for improved image quality and faster processing, while its creativity tools — such as Night, Pro + RAW, HDR and Portrait mode — let users capture the perfect shot, no matter the circumstances.
Brilliant design, durable build
Purposefully designed, Redmi Note 9T was crafted for a stylish look and feel with its 6.53” 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.
Widevine L1 and TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified, Redmi Note 9T was built to handle hours of HD content streaming without the annoying eye strain. With its convenient side fingerprint sensor, Redmi Note 9T can unlock seamlessly.
Redmi Note 9T is available in two captivating color variants — Nightfall Black and Daybreak Purple — that’ll never go out of style.
Optimum performance with high-capacity battery
Packing a punch with its 5,000mAh (typ) battery and advanced, high-efficiency processor technology, Redmi Note 9T dispels battery anxiety and provides a perfect blend of performance and power efficiency for the 5G era. Redmi Note 9T offers 18W fast charging and comes with an in-box 22.5W charger. Better yet, its high charge cycle battery technology means that users can experience almost three years of daily use without significant battery capacity degradation2.
Develop cinematic photos, spend less time editing
Redmi 9T is a photography powerhouse with its 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 stunning 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 which offers various speed and duration values for shooting so users can capture creative time-lapse photos without tapping a DSLR or other professional camera.
Performance shines through with powerful chipset and high-capacity battery
Despite its lightweight design, Redmi 9T packs a punch with its 6,000mAh (typ) battery and Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 662 chipset. Combined with its 11nm energy-efficient processor, Redmi 9T delivers higher performance with less heat production and lower power consumption than previous generations. Moreover, MIUI battery saving mode and reverse wired charging capabilities help maximize all-day, and even multi-day usage.
Like Redmi Note 9T, Redmi 9T comes with 18W fast charging and an in-box 22.5W charger.
Durability and comfort join forces for a superior entry-level smartphone experience
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.
Redmi 9T also comes with Widevine L1 and TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certifications for a more enjoyable viewing experience. The device is available in four delightful color variants: Carbon Gray, Twilight Blue, Sunrise Orange, and Ocean Green.
More to love with expandable storage
Complete with Dual SIM and microSD expandable storage, Redmi 9T offers expandable storage of up to 512GB so users can keep their favorite apps, games, photos and videos all on one device. Infrared blaster support would come in handy on your Redmi 9T.
