So we’re not looking forward to just the Redmi Note 9T 5G on January 8. The long-rumored Redmi 9T is confirmed to go official on that day, too.

(Update, January 8: We know this is what you’ve been waiting for: Redmi 9T, Redmi Note 9T 5G unveiled. Prices, specs here.)

Xiaomi has announced that the said model will be launched in Malaysia. Same date, same time — 8 p.m. locally. We don’t know yet if there will be two separate events or only one, though, where Xiaomi Malaysia will share the global page’s livestream.

While the Redmi Note 9T is said to be the international version of China’s MediaTek Dimensity 800U-powered Redmi Note 9 5G, the Redmi 9T is said to be a tweaked variant of the Chinese’s Redmi Note 9 4G. Instead of three cameras, the cheaper 9T features four shooters, with an additional 2-megapixel macro sensor. For reference, here are the specs of the phone that was released in China:

  • 6.53-inch LCD display, 2,400 x 1,080 resolution, 60Hz refresh rate
  • 11nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor
  • Adreno 610 GPU
  • 4GB LPDDR4X RAM
  • 64GB/128GB UFS 2.1 storage (UFS 2.2 for 128GB variant)
  • Quad 48-megapixel, f/1.8 (main), 8-megapixel (ultra-wide), 2-megapixel, f/2.4 (depth), 2-megapixel, f/2.4 (macro) rear cameras
  • 8-megapixel, f/2.0 front camera
  • Fingerprint reader (side-mounted)
  • 6,000mAh battery with 18-watt USB-C charging
  • MIUI 12 based on Android 10
  • Color options: Green, blue, orange, black

If we are to believe a leak more than a month ago, the two smartphones and the POCO M3 are somewhat the same; they just have different cameras and design.
