- Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T will launch globally on January 8.

- Its specs and EU pricing have leaked thanks to an early Amazon listing.
If we were to explain Xiaomi’s most recent rebranding efforts across different markets, we’d end up giving you a headache. So instead, let’s just leave it at the fact that the phone maker is launching a new Redmi smartphone globally on January 8. It’s calling it the Redmi Note 9T — a 5G phone targeted at budget-minded buyers.
Xiaomi hasn’t officially disclosed any information, but Amazon Germany jumped the gun to reveal the phone’s specs and prices, confirming that it’s essentially the Redmi Note 9 5G that launched in China back in November.
The early listing shows that the Redmi Note 9T will feature a MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, a 6.53-inch FHD+ punch-hole display, a 48MP main camera, a 5,000mAh battery with 18W charging, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB of storage.
As far as pricing goes, Amazon listed the base variant of the Redmi Note 9T at €229.90 (~$282). Meanwhile, its 128GB storage version was listed at €269.90 (~$330). The said listings have since been removed from the website.
Nevertheless, if those prices are accurate, the Redmi Note 9T will be one of the most affordable 5G phones in Europe, going up against the likes of the Realme 7 5G. Rebranded or not, its specs seem pretty solid on paper, so it’s bound to be a popular device when it launches.
