I have to admit: Xiaomi is one of those companies that just sell BASICALLY ANYTHING. Just look at this list of products that they sell in the Philippines! It’s NUTS when you think about it. One of the things Xiaomi’s really REALLY good at is smartphones. With the Mi 9, they really found their stride in terms of design and features while being shockingly affordable. Since they clearly don’t rest on their laurels, they went and put out the Mi 9T!
What’s New With The Mi 9T?
Great question! The Mi 9T brings the common 2019 smartphone trend to a Xiaomi phone: the popup front-facing camera! I would normally scoff on that but basically the two other major Chinese smartphone makers are doing it anyway. What surprised me the most is how much tech they managed to put in this phone while keeping the price low!
I love how phone makers eventually knew how to make phones look super gorgeous! Ever since the smartphone slump happened, basically everyone (especially Apple and Samsung) is looking for ways to stand out. The Mi 9T is no different with its awesome flame pattern in the back! This phone has three colors: Carbon Black, Glacier Blue, and the coolest looking Flame Red! Regardless of which color you pick, you’re sure to be mesmerized by its back!
