Xiaomi’s sub brand Redmi has been thriving ever since it went beyond Xiaomi’s protective wing. It went ahead to release flagships, successful series of handsets, of all shapes, sizes and prices. Redmi 9 and Redmi Note 9 were very well sold this year and now we’re preparing for a Redmi Note 9T, which just leaked. Let’s see what’s new.
One would expect to see the Redmi Note 10 at this point, but we’re not there yet. The lineup of the Redmi Note 9 family is already crowded, including the likes of Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9S, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9 4G, Redmi Note 9 5G, Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The Note 9T has been pictured in these two renders, with a rounded back camera which feels a bit like the Huawei Mate 30 Pro one and also a punch hole selfie camera. We get to see it in purple and green.
By the way the same camera design was also seen on the Redmi Note 9 5G series. Inside we find a MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor and the prototype that popped up in GeekBench 5 has 4 GB of RAM, Android 10 and decent scores in the benchmark. An NBTC certification from earlier this month revealed the codename M2007J22G, with the “G” showing that it’s not just a China-only model. We expect a debut in 2021, with a 6.4+ inch screen, a plastic body and probably a 48 MP back camera sensor.
We estimate a price around $200 to $250 and hopefully we also get Android 11 in the mix fast.
