Xiaomi has released the global variant of the Note 9 5G — Note 9T. The Note 9T aims to make 5G affordable thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC. The Note 9T also offers dual 5G standby, a 48 MP triple-camera setup, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 18 W fast charge. Early bird customers in Germany get to avail the base variant of the Note 9T at €30 discount.

A few days ago, we reported about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T leaking in full. The Note 9T is essentially a rebadged Note 9 5G that was released in China back in November 2020. Powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T aims to bring 5G into more affordable price brackets.

Xiaomi says that the Note 9T features multiple antennas, 4x4 MIMO, and can handle two 5G SIMs simultaneously. The company also claims that the combination of the Dimensity 800U and UFS 2.2 storage makes the Note 9T up to "100% faster" than the previous generation. The UFS 2.2 storage, however, comes only with the 4/128 GB option. Widevine L1 certification means users can play back Netflix and Amazon Prime videos in FHD resolution.

The Note 9T sports a 19.5:9 FHD+ 6.53-inch 450-nit "DotDisplay" with a pedestrian 60 Hz refresh rate and 84% NTSC covrage. A 48 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP  triple-camera setup and a 13 MP in-display selfie camera take care of the imaging aspects of the phone.

Powering the Xiaomi Note 9T is a 5,000 mAh cell that supports 18 W fast charging, which the company says can offer up to 3 days of usage. The device will run MIUI 12 based on Android 10.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T will be available in Nightfall Black and Daybreak Purple variants. It will be available in 4/64 GB and 4/128 GB options for €229.9 and €269.90, respectively. The Note 9T will be available for sale in Germany from January 25. Early bird customers can avail the Note 9T on Jan 25 and 26 on mi.com/de and amazon.de for €199.90

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
