Xiaomi today announced the Mi 9T in the Philippines following its launch in Europe and Malaysia.
It’s obvious from the teasers that the next phone Xiaomi is launching in the Philippines is the Mi 9T. All we really need is a confirmation. Today, we at Revü finally found it.
At the annual Google developer conference held in May, the American technology giant revealed that it is bringing Android Q Beta to 15 partner phones from 12 manufacturers. The list of devices includes Xiaomi’s Mi 9 and Mi Mix 3 5G.
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.
The Xiaomi Mi 9T has been launched in Europe, along with the Mi Smart Band 4 wearable, which features a color OLED screen and new band options.
Xiaomi will formally launch its Mi 9T series next week, June 12, likely through a live stream since the venue of the event was left off the announcement.
A recent post by Xiaomi suggested that the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro could launch under a different name, possibly as the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro under Xiaomi’s own label, as earlier speculated by a Polish website.
Xiaomi and its exclusive distributor in the Philippines, Grimalkin Corporation, have ramped up the opening of official Mi stores in the country. Just this month, they added two branches — one in Manila on May 18 and another in Pampanga May 25th.
Remember the Redmi K20, that upcoming Redmi smartphone that notched a whopping Antutu benchmark score of 458,754? Well, now it can be said: It will be launched in China May 28, barely a week from today.
Waiting for the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE? The company has finally confirmed that the smartphone will go on sale in the Philippines, two days after the device was teased online. What’s more, it will be offered in a few days’ time.
