Xiaomi Mi 9T Review

In 2019, the Chinese company Xiaomi introduced the Mi 9T model, which is close to the Redmi K20 in its characteristics. The smartphone is positioned as almost a flagship and belongs to the middle price range. Thanks to the fingerprint scanner built into the screen and the removable selfie camera Xiaomi Mi 9T is quite interesting. It also attracts the attention of users with its 48 MP main camera and SuperAMOLED matrix with HDR10 technology support. What else Xiaomi Mi 9T offers, we will look at in the following lines.


At a time when most phones look alike, Xiaomi's designers have tried to make the Mi 9T memorable. It has a winning design. Its front panel has smooth transitions to the pages, the corners are slightly rounded. A maximum balance between strict vision and modernity has been achieved. The smartphone is available in several colors - red, blue and black.

The front panel of Xiaomi Mi 9T is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass fifth generation. We find an oleophobic coating on both sides, and the frame is metal.

The removable selfie camera can be used to unlock the smartphone. As the mechanism moves slowly, it is not necessary to use it mainly for this function.

The weight of the Xiaomi Mi 9T is 190 grams. Some users may see this a lot.


The smartphone is equipped with a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2340x1040 pixels. The pixel density per inch is 403. The maximum brightness is about 430 cd / sq.m. HDR10 technology is supported.


Xiaomi Mi 9T is available in two modifications: 6GB / 64GB and 6GB / 128GB. For this price range of devices, these indicators are decent. Under the case we also find a chip from Qualcomm, which is made of 8-nm process technology. Specifically, it is a Qualcomm SDM730 Snapdragon 730, which consists of 8 cores - two Kryo 470 Gold clocked at 2.2 GHz and six cores Kryo 470 Silver clocked at 1.8 GHz. The graphics processor is Adreno 618.

From the features listed so far, it is clear that the performance of the Xiaomi Mi 9T is on par. You can rely on your smartphone even to play heavier games. In everyday tasks, it offers you speed and fluency.

The factory Xiaomi Mi 9T has an operating system Android 9.0 (Pie) and MIUI 10 interface.


The smartphone has a triple main camera, which consists of a main 48 MP module, an additional 13 MP wide-angle module (with 124-degree visibility) and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with double optical zoom. The manufacturer has provided dual flash and the ability to record 4K video at 30 frames per second. No optical stabilization.

The front camera of the Xiaomi Mi 9T is a single 20-megapixel camera. What is specific about it is that it is removed.

With this smartphone in hand you can count on good photos during the day. Especially if you use the main module and edit manually. The dynamic range is wide and the photos in HDR mode are very beautiful. During the dark hours of the day, the brightness level of the objects decreases. The quality drops sharply.

With Xiaomi Mi 9T you can take beautiful selfies to share on social networks. The availability of ready-made shooting modes makes it easier to work with the cameras.

Autonomous work

Under the pleasant look of the Xiaomi Mi 9T lies a non-removable Li-Po battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh. It provides you with enough autonomous work. If you watch 4K video without interruption, the charge will reach you in 13 hours. With more economical use, you can count on a day and a half.

Xiaomi has provided support for fast charging technology, thanks to which the speed of recovery of the battery is pleasing. It will definitely be appreciated by people with a dynamic daily life.


Every year, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer proves that it can create interesting models that deserve the attention of consumers around the world. Xiaomi Mi 9T is a balanced solution.
