Xiaomi’s Mi 9 smartphone was one of those smartphones to come with powerful snapdragon 855 chipset. Now they have introduced even more balanced smartphone Mi 9T.
The premium design of Mi 9T will surely attract the Xiaomi lovers to choose it. The design of it is almost similar to K20 Pro. But a gradient finish with patterns has been provided at the corners of the device which makes it even more beautiful. Xiaomi has preferred not to give any notch in the phone.
But still it looks fantastic. It has three different colors which are Carbon Black, Red Flame & Glacier Blue. It has a curved glass back including glossy metal rails which might make it slightly slippery to hold. In that case, the users have to maintain some carefulness. The in-display fingerprint sensor is pretty quick & doesn’t make delay to register the thumb of the user.

Super Camera Section
Xiaomi has kept their tradition of providing excellent camera section in this smartphone as well. A 48 mega-pixel main rear camera is available in the phone with f/1.75 aperture. There is also a second 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a third 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture.
Both Exmor-RS CMOS Sensor & Phase Detection Autofocus have been featured in this phone so that the users can capture excellent photos having enough depth & detail. The images captured by the camera are incredibly sharp with excellent dynamic range. The low light performance of the camera is a little harsh but you have to accept it considering the price range of a mid-range budget phone.
A 20-megapixel popup camera has been given at the front which is an exclusive addition to the phone. Its’ pixel size is 0.8 um & aperture is f/2.2. The camera section has got some other magnificent features like Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass & Gyroscope which help the users to use the camera in different aspects. It can record videos at 1080p resolution too.

A Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor has been given in this smartphone. One of the CPU is 2×2.2 GHz Kryo 470 Gold & the other is 6×1.7 GHz Kryo 470 Silver. An Adreno 618 GPU helps to run it smoothly. Though it’s a downgrade indeed considering that Xiaomi provided snapdragon 855 chipset in Mi 9, but they are certainly bound to do it to keep 9Ts’ price minimum.
