Design and Display of the Redmi 9T
The design is identical to that of the Redmi 9 Power, and it comes in four colors: Sunset Orange, Twilight Blue, Carbon Gray, and Ocean Green. With a Redmi logo on the back, the texture is fingerprint resistant. The phone is splash-proof despite the lack of IP approval. On the top left, there is a rectangular camera module. This design is dubbed “Aura Force” by the company. Where is the fingerprint sensor, then? It’s built into the power switch.
Corning Gorilla Glass 3 covers the display, which is a 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS LCD screen. The top of the phone has a dewdrop notch, and the refresh rate is capped at 60Hz, as is typical of a budget phone.
Cameras and Performance
The phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 662 processor with 11nm architecture and 4GB LPDDR4X RAM. The storage choices here are a little different in terms of technology. The 64GB version uses the UFS 2.1 protocol, while the 128GB version uses the faster UFS 2.2 protocol. Snapdragon 662 and Snapdragon 665 are also confused because they both use the same GPU and have the same number of cores. The only difference is that the cores in the 665 have a slower clock speed. The phone’s software is MIUI 12, which is based on Android 10.
The quad-camera system on the back bump includes a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP depth camera, and a 2MP macro camera. In the notch up front, there’s an 8MP sensor.
