Xiaomi has officially unveiled its Mi 9T smartphone at a global event in Europe and as expected, it is the rebranded Redmi K20. However, in contrast to previous rumours, the pro variant of the device was not announced. The Mi 9T features a near-bezel display design, which is possible with a pop-up camera module on top, which houses the front camera. It also features triple rear cameras that come equipped with a 48MP main sensor and different colour patterns for the rear panel. Alongside the new smartphone, Xiaomi also announced its Mi Smart Band 4 wearable that was recently announced in China as the Mi Band 4.
As mentioned earlier, the Mi 9T is a rebranded version of the Redmi K20 smartphone. It features a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a 2340x1080p resolution and doesn’t sport a notch. It comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner and the pop-up module on top houses a 20MP f/2.2 selfie shooter. Running on Snapdragon 730 SoC, the smartphone sports 6GB RAM with the option to select between 64GB and 128GB of internal storage. While the handset runs on MIUI 10, there’s no mention of the Android version, it's most likely based on Android 9 Pie.
In terms of optics, the Mi 9T comes equipped with a triple rear camera setup. It consists of a 48MP sensor that is paired with an f/1.8 aperture lens, 8MP telephoto camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a 13MP ultrawide camera with lens featuring f/2.4 aperture size. The handset is backed by a 4000mAh battery.
The newly announced Mi Smart Band 4 comes equipped with a 0.95-inch AMOLED colour display with a 120x240p resolution. Thanks to new display, it gets 77 dial themes for better personalisation, along with touch support. The device supports voice commands as well and can display information like incoming calls and text messages. One can also control music playing on their phone with the wearable and see live weather and stock updates. Xiaomi claims that the new Mi Band 4 can work for up to 20 days on a single charge.
The Mi Smart Band 4 comes in only a standard version, even though the company also announced an NFC enabled version in China. The wearable comes equipped with a six-axis accelerometer that is touted to accurately track activities like running, cycling, exercise, swimming, and walking. It is also water resistant with 5ATM rating, which means it can be submersed in waters up to 50 meters deep.
The Mi 9T comes in Black, Blue and Red colour models and will go up for purchase in Europe on June 19. The handset is priced at €329 (Rs 25,812 approx) for the 6GB + 64GB model and costs €369 (Rs 28,951 approx) for the 6GB + 128GB variant. The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 will go up for sale in Europe on June 26 for €35 (Rs 2,746 approx).
