It was only a few months ago that Xiaomi released the Mi 9T in the Philippines. (In China and some markets, it’s named Redmi K20 Pro.) There was already a lot in the 9T but sometimes you need that extra performance, especially in gaming! With that in mind, Xiaomi put out the Redmi K20 Pro. I wondered whether it would come out in the Philippines. Well, Xiaomi made it so and called it the Mi 9T Pro!
What’s New With the Mi 9T Pro?
I’m supposed to run down what’s new with this phone in excruciating detail. Based on the image below though, I don’t really need to say a whole lot huh? The big difference maker here is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. It basically means you get the best possible performance in an Android phone today. (And no, the 855 Plus on recent gaming phones don’t count since it’s just a clock boost.)
Another thing they did to compensate for the more powerful processor is having a cooling solution! The Mi 9T Pro has an 8-layer graphite heat dissipation system so you are sure to be comfortable while playing games!
Other than that, it has the same set of specs as the Mi 9T. That’s not necessarily a bad thing!
For people who gaga over specs, here’s what the Mi 9T Pro has to offer! (Differences from the 9T are highlighted in bold.
- 6.39-inch FHD+ (2340 x 1080) AMOLED 19.5:9 display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor
- 6/8 GB RAM
- 64/128/256 GB internal storage
- Triple rear cameras: 48MP Sony IMX582 F1.75 + 13MP F2.4 (ultrawide) + 8MP F2.4 (telephoto)
- 20MP F2.0 popup front camera
- In-screen fingerprint sensor
- Android 9 Pie with MIUI 10
- Mi Turbo
- Game Turbo 2.0
- 4000 mAh battery with support for fast charging up to 27W
On paper, it doesn’t look like there’s much difference really. But some of the specs really matter in practice.
