Xiaomi is a major player in the smartphone market, the brand has a lot of options and many that are geared for a younger customer base that needs affordable options. The Xiaomi Redmi 9T is one such option, with that intent in mind it also has a good main camera setup for the younger generation to produce content via.

This smartphone has a simple design with rounded edges and a thin bezel. The front camera is set into a small notch, with the rear camera bump similar to the shape of the device just a lot smaller.

Internals and OS

The processor powering this device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 which is made using the 11nm method. This is an octa-core processor with 4 cores at 2.0GHz and another 4 at 1.8GHz. This is combined with the Adreno 610 for graphics processing. To manage tasking there is 4GB of RAM and storage is at 128GB. In case one wants to increase their storage, there is a dedicated microSDXC card slot to make use of. 

For the base of the OS, there is Android 10 and layered onto this is Xiaomi's MIUI 12. The base allows for Machine Learning, which means this device improves its pace after a while of being used, this is when it learns the user's patterns. MIUI 12 is an improved system, with better animation, app drawers, super file sharing and an up-gradation of an already great file management system. One can also make use of the Dark Mode as well as Focus Mode, this latter mode makes sure you are not using your smartphone too much.

Display and Camera

With a 6.53 inch display that has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, the screen on the Xiaomi Redmi 9T is good. The pixels per inch count comes to 395 and the display has a brightness of 400 nits. All this combined makes for a good visual experience. There is a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 on top to keep the display safe from falls.

At this price, the camera system is from a somewhat higher class, with a quad lens system. The main sensor is a 48MP one with an aperture of f/1.8 and shoots similar to 26mm meaning it covers a wider view. The secondary is an 8MP sensor at f/2.2, this one is for the ultrawide shots in case one has a larger group of views to capture. The last two are both 2MP sensors with an aperture of f/2.4, one is for the macro shooting and the other is the depth sensor which adds layers to your shots.

On the front is the selfie camera, this is an 8MP one with an aperture of f/2.0; it can shoot wide shots as well similar to a 27mm lens. The camera app adds a lot of functions such as HDR, panorama and features phase detection, geo-tagging and more. Video can be shot at 1080p with a frame rate of 30fps on both sides.

Connectivity, Sensors and the Rest

Xiaomi's Redmi 9T features a full range of connectivity options, this includes WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, NFC, infrared and Data. A lot of smartphones that are for a similar price range as the Redmi 9T do not have NFC or infrared. For physical connectivity, one can make use of the USB Type-C port and there is also a 3.5mm audio jack.

The sensors which provide valuable feedback for operable functionality include a gyro, a proximity sensor and an accelerometer. The fingerprint sensor is rear-mounted and helps one unlock their smartphone with ease. 

A large battery is very useful and the Redmi 9T has a 6000mAh battery that is based on Li-Polymer technology. It also has a feature that enables it to function similar to a power bank so one can share their battery with someone in case their battery is about to die.

One can choose from a range of different colours with this model. The colours include Carbon Gray, Twilight Blue, Sunrise Orange and Ocean Green. The price of this device is in the mid ranges, somewhere closer to the starting point within that range.
