Assuming the Redmi Note 9T specifications match the Redmi Note 9 5G, here’s what we can expect. The Redmi Note 9T could sport a 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera and a standard 60Hz refresh rate. It may be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage that should be further expandable via a microSD card slot for memory expansion. The phone should run Android-10 based MIUI 12 out of the box.

Like the Redmi Note 9 5G, the Redmi Note 9T should also get triple rear cameras comprising of a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth snapper. On the front, the phone may get a 13MP camera for selfies and video chats. The device could house a 5,000mAh battery and come equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security and measures 161.96mm × 77.25mm × 9.20mm and weighs 200 grams. To recall, Redmi Note 9 5G price in China starts from RMB 1299 (approx Rs 14,600), which is what we can expect the Redmi Note 9T to cost globally as well.
