There’s no doubt anymore that the Xiaomi Mi 9T — or the global version of the Redmi K20 — is going to be available in the Philippines. The company has started teasing the Snapdragon 730 smartphone on Facebook.
(Updated, June 19: Guess what? The phone is already listed on Xiaomi’s official online store! See Xiaomi Mi 9T already listed on Lazada Philippines.)
The image above is exactly the same material shared by the global account of Xiaomi when the Mi 9T was first teased. #PopUpInStyle, the hashtag used to promote it, is similar as well.
The Xiaomi Mi 9T became official in Europe June 12, when it was launched alongside the Mi Band 4. It’s going to be unveiled in Malaysia June 20, so the release date in the Philippines should be anytime soon.
In Spain, the model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage is priced at €329 (around P19,309 or $371) while the variant with 128GB storage is retailing at €369 (P21,654 or $416). The base model will go on sale first on June 17 at a discounted price of €299 (P17,542 or $337).
The bigger question for us involves the Redmi K20 Pro. Will there ever be an international version of the phone? We know many are waiting for it, as it’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 but is available for as low as ¥2,499 (P18,774 or $361) in China.
In any case, if you want an 855-enabled device like right now, you always have the Xiaomi Mi 9 as your option. We have the handset, and we’re loving it thus far.
