Xiaomi announced that it would launch a new Mi-Series smartphone called Mi 9T on June 12. The Chinese tech giant, however, didn't mention the place of the event, so we don’t know whether the launch is in India, China or Europe. There is a possibility that this is a soft launch. There is no official information on the features and specifications of the phone, but we can still speculate them on the basis of the image that the company posted on Twitter.
According to the image, the phone will not have any type of notch, which means that it will come with a pop-up selfie camera mechanism. That theory is further strengthened by a hashtag that Xiaomi has used in the tweet (see below). In the image, we can also see a triple camera setup and an LED flash. There is no visible fingerprint sensor, which suggests that the Mi 9T will have an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Previously, a Dubai-based YouTuber had claimed that Redmi K20 is re-branded as Mi 9T in markets outside China. The Youtuber also posted three images of the phone showing the front part where the screen doesn’t have a notch. The Mi 9T will reportedly come in a Carbon Black colour with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage.
The image shared by the Dubai-based blogger shows a screen guard of the device that has the specs written down on it. It says that the phone has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display, in-display fingerprint sensor, 20MP pop-up front camera, and a 4,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. The chipset is likely going to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730.
