The leaked teaser images of the Redmi Note 9T indicate that it will be coming with a MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset. This happens to be the same chipset that powered the Redmi Note 9 5G. The upcoming device also matches when it comes to design front, considering the leaked teaser images. The Note 9T comes with identical punch hole placement upfront. And, also uses a similar circular camera module on the rear. It also incorporates triple rear cameras as the Note 9 5G.
The teased images further indicate a 48MP primary sensor, a 6.53-inches display, a 5000mAh battery, 18W fast charging, and NFC support. Again, all these match the Note 9 5G smartphone. Henceforth, it is safe to say that the upcoming Redmi Note 9T 5G is indeed a rebranded Redmi Note 9 5G launching on January 8th, globally.
