Xiaomi's Redmi 9T features an identical 6.53-inch FHD+ display as the Redmi Note 9T, but has a waterdrop notch instead of a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. It runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 662 chipset and is equipped with a triple-camera setup on the back. The phone's 48MP main sensor is joined by a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. Keeping the lights on is an impressive 6,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.

While the Redmi Note 9T will start at €229 in Europe, the Redmi 9T will start at €159. As part of an 'early bird' promotion, however, you'll be able to get the Redmi Note 9T for just €199.
