- The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T launches globally on January 8th.
- The phone is probably a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 5G from China.
- Specifications and EU prices have leaked thanks to an early Amazon listing.
If we were to explain Xiaomi’s recent rebranding efforts across different markets, we’ll end up giving you a headache. So let’s instead let the phone manufacturer launch a new Redmi smartphone globally on January 8th. It calls it the Redmi Note 9T – a 5G phone aimed at budget buyers.
Xiaomi has not officially revealed any information, but Amazon Germany jumped the gun to reveal the phone’s specifications and prices, and confirmed that it is actually the Redmi Note 9 5G that was launched in China back in November.
The early list shows that the Redmi Note 9T will include a MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, a 6.53-inch FHD + punch-hole screen, a 48MP main camera, a 5,000 mAh battery with 18 W charge, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB / 128 GB storage space.
As far as prices go, Amazon listed the basic variant of the Redmi Note 9T at € 229.90 (~ $ 282). Meanwhile, the 128 GB storage version was listed at € 269.90 (~ $ 330). Mentioned entries have since been removed from the site.
Still, if these prices are accurate, the Redmi Note 9T will be one of the most affordable 5G phones in Europe, and go up against the likes of the Realme 7 5G. Branded or not, its specifications seem pretty solid on paper, so it’s certainly a popular device when it launches.
