Xiaomi Mi 9T (Redmi K20) vs Xiaomi Mi 9: what are their main differences? Check their head to head comparison

By  Sophia Windsor 2019-06-13 1313 0

We'd been hearing rumors for some time about the imminent arrival of the Xiaomi Mi 9T. It was expected to be presented yesterday with the Xiaomi Mi Band 4, but this was not the case. But today, the Asian firm has confirmed the price of the Mi Band 4 in Spain, besides showing us all the details of the Xiaomi Mi 9T, the decaffeinated version of the Xiaomi Mi 9, which has some very interesting surprises.

When we had the opportunity to analyze the Xiaomi Mi 9, our sensations were really good. And yes, as you can see in this comparison of the Xiaomi Mi 9T against its big brother, you will see that there are some notable differences, but this model has some details in terms of design that make the difference in their favor.

Xiaomi Mi 9T vs Xiaomi Mi 9: specs

Xiaomi Mi 9T ​(Redmi K20) comes with the very similar name with Xiaomi Mi 9, but are there any differences for their specs? Let’s find out.

Xiaomi Mi 9T vs Xiaomi Mi 9: design

Although it is true that both models are equipped with a body made of aluminum and tempered glass, there is a great detail to take into account. And is that, the screen of the Mi 9T does not have any kind of notch on the screen, unlike the Xiaomi Mi 9. How did you do it? Using a retractable camera system that allows the terminal panel to be the main protagonist of the front.

But with the same 6.39-inch screen, both terminals have almost identical dimensions, although the Xiaomi Mi 9T is thicker than its big brother. A lesser evil in exchange for not suffering any notch in the screen that breaks the aesthetics of the terminal.

Xiaomi Mi 9T vs Xiaomi Mi 9: technical features

We have already told you that the screen of both terminals we find the same Full HD+ panel with AMOLED technology and diagonal of 6.39 inches. But, in this comparison of the Xiaomi Mi 9T against the Xiaomi Mi 9 we did find some notable differences in terms of hardware.

In this way, the most vitaminized model bets on the best processor on the market. We talk about SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 along with 6 or 8 GB of RAM. In the case of the processor of the Xiaomi Mi 9T, has a Snapdragon 730 along with 6 GB of RAM. A configuration more than enough to move any game or application, but inferior to that of its big brother.

The same happens with the internal storage, and that Xiaomi's Mi 9T comes with two versions of 64 and 128 GB, while the Mi 9 has 128 or 256 GB. However, the battery of the Mi 9T points really high. Its 4,000 mAh guarantee an amazing autonomy. A detail to keep in mind, more if we remember the bad feelings that left us the 3,300 mAh battery of the top model.

Xiaomi Mi 9T vs Xiaomi Mi 9: camera

Finally, let's talk about the photographic section. And another pleasant surprise that we take with us. And is that, the camera of the Xiaomi Mi 9T has a triple camera system, like that of its older brother. In this case, we find a first sensor Sony IMX586 of 48 megapixels and focal aperture 1.75, while the second sensor is a wide angle of 13 megapixels with focal aperture 2.4, and a third sensor of 8 megapixels with focal aperture 2.2.

In contrast, Xiaomi's Mi 9 comes with the same main sensor, but its wide angle is 16 megapixels, just like the third sensor that has 12 megapixels. What about the front camera? Exactly the same 20-megapixel sensor is mounted, so there's nothing to criticize in this regard. And, if we consider that the manufacturer has confirmed that the price of the Xiaomi Mi 9T is going to be really restrained, it is an excellent option to consider.
