Following their promise earlier this month, Xiaomi today has officially launched the new Mi 9T in Malaysia. Released in China as the Redmi K20, the new device is the third model under the company’s signature Mi 9 series.
Based on its Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor, the Mi 9T is generally sandwiched between the Snapdragon 710-based Mi 9 SE and the flagship Mi 9 which is powered by Snapdragon 855. However, it is the only model in the family that doesn’t come with a display notch, thanks to its 20MP pop-up selfie camera which allows users to fully utilize its 6.39-inch full HD AMOLED display.
On it back, Xiaomi has retained the same triple camera setup from Mi 9 SE which includes the main camera that features 48MP Sony IMX582 sensor. It is also equipped with a 13MP ultra wide-lens and 8MP telephoto cameras. A 3.5mm audio jack and 4000mAh battery complete Mi 9T’s general specifications.
Price-wise, the Mi 9T with 64GB internal storage goes for RM 1,199 and can be obtained from 25 June onwards. However, you can save a little bit by getting the device from through Lazada on 25 June for RM 1,099 and you can even try your luck to obtain the Mi 9T for free as Xiaomi is giving away a unit for every 10,000 pre-booking.
For consumers that want to have larger internal storage on the phone, there is also the 128GB variant which goes for RM 1,399 and will be available from 29 June onwards. Xiaomi Malaysia’s Country Manager, Allen An has hinted that there will be a deal for the Mi 9T 128GB as well in which the company will announce as we get to closer to the rollout date later this month.
