The Redmi Note 9T sports a 6.53-inch FHD+ display with a hole-punch cutout in the top-left corner for the 13MP selfie camera. Under the hood, it has MediaTek's Dimensity 800U 5G chipset, which supports dual 5G SIM capability.
Around the back of the phone is a triple-camera setup featuring a 48MP main sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro lens. The phone also packs a large 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
