“This is the second Xiaomi Mi 9T listing that has popped up in just a week’s time”
After the launch of the Redmi K20 series in China, Xiaomi has recently started teasing a Xiaomi Mi 9T for Europe with a notch-less design. The same model had also appeared on a number of certification portals outside of China even before the Redmi K20 launch. Now there are more and more clues that the Xiaomi Mi 9T will actually be a rebranded Redmi K20. One more listing of the handset has popped up on a relatively unknown Bulgarian e-store today with labels of the Redmi K20 and Mi 9T at the same time. Renowned tipster Roland Quandt has also stated that the Mi 9T Pro models will be exactly the same as the Redmi K20 Pro version with the exception of the “Mi” logo.
The listing on the retailer’s website shows the Redmi K20 itself in place of the Xiaomi Mi 9T, but the model number “MZB7724EU” (which is used below) is for the European model of the Mi 9T. The price displayed on the listing is Lev 649 (around Rs 25,700) for the base variant. This listing comes after another European e-store put up the Xiaomi Mi 9T up for pre-order last week.
Xiaomi has also started aggressively advertising the Redmi K20 launch in India, with the launch confirmed to happen within 6 weeks. In terms of specifications, the Xiaomi Mi 9T is expected to be exactly like the Redmi K20.
As for the specifications, Redmi K20 Pro has a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED full-HD+ display, is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC, and runs Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 software. The handset has a 48MP + 8MP + 13MP triple rear camera setup, while the pop-up selfie camera houses a 20MP shooter. It has a 4,000mAh battery with 27W fast-charging support and an in-display fingerprint sensor. It comes in three variants, 6GB + 64GB (RMB 2,499), 6GB + 128GB (RMB 2,599), 8GB + 128GB (RMB 2,799), and 8GB + 256GB (RMB 2,999).
