Xiaomi releases the first official teaser for Mi 9T: Redmi K20 will not be renamed

The Redmi K20 series was released yesterday in China, but before it appeared, there was news about its worldwide availability. While some said that the K20 Pro will be released as POCO F2, others said that these two phones will keep their names outside of China. Another source said that they will be released as Xiaomi Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro parts of Europe. The new teaser from Xiaomi confirms the name of the Mi 9T, but denies rumors that this is the new brand Redmi K20 / Redmi K20 Pro.

The teaser, which was published on the official Twitter page, shows a phone with a similar design as the current Mi 9. The cameras are located on the left side of the phone, not in the middle, like the Redmi K20. However, the display of the front camera has no notch.

The headline reads: "K, I or T ... Which letter would you choose for the newest member of our Mi9 family? Why? Among the suggested letters is the letter "T", and we already know that the Mi 9T phone has been certified in a number of countries. It is safe to conclude that the device in the teaser is actually Mi 9T.

Editor's tip: The new MediaTek SoC will lead 5G to cheaper flagships.

Hashtag #PopUpInStyle also indicates that the phone has a pop-up selfie camera, as in the Redmi K20 series. However, we strongly believe that the module can slip out of the center of the device, not from the side, as in the Redmi K20 series.

Considering that the Mi 9T is practically the Mi 9 with the new display and the pop-up selfie camera, its features will be very similar if they are not identical to the features of the Mi 9. Expect less battery capacity than the Redmi K20, wireless charging and the missing audio jack.
