Xiaomi launched on Friday (08/01/2020) two new smartphones: redmi 9T and redmi Note 9T 5G. Although it bears the "T" in the name, the two devices are actually renamed versions of the Poco M3 and Note 9 5G, respectively, launched in China in November 2020.

Of course, the redmi Note 9T 5G is the most powerful model of the two and brings the chipset Dimensity 800U 5G of MediaTek, while the redmi 9T comes with a Snapdragon processor 662 and a huge 6,000 mAh battery.
