In what looks like its preparation for the October 15 launch of the Xiaomi Mi 10T series, Xiaomi Philippines has dropped the price of the upcoming phones’ predecessor.
The Xiaomi Mi 9T with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage now costs only P10,990 (around $227) while the 6GB/128GB model is selling for P12,990 ($269). Recall that when the rebranded Redmi K20 was released in the country in 2019, its two variants got P15,990 ($331) and P17,990 ($372) price tags.
The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730, the same chip that powers devices such as the Vivo X50. In our review of the Xiaomi Mi 9T last year, we wrote that it looks and acts like a flagship and that between the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro, the former is a more sensible purchase even if the Pro model is technically superior.
Other features of the Xiaomi Mi 9T include a 6.39-inch AMOLED screen, a 48-megapixel triple camera on the back, a 20-megapixel selfie camera with a pop-up mechanism, and a 4,000mAh battery with support for 18 watts of fast charging.
We would like to point out that the handset is now similarly priced to the POCO X3 NFC. We have also used the latter (review should be up soon), and we think you may want to opt for the POCO for a better overall performance. The Mi 9T is more well-built than the X3, though.
