Editor Rating

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T is a nice upgrade over the base model Note 9 smartphone that features a similar design but refreshed internals. The body and frame are made from plastic, with the smartphone featuring a 3D unibody design that is curved around the side and edges to make it more comfortable to hold. The rear panel features a matte paint job, while the surface is given a unique texture to help avoid fingerprint accumulation. The front panel is flat, with barely any bezels, and the selfie camera is fitted inside a tiny punch-hole on the top left.


Bottom Line

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T is a nice and affordable entry-level smartphone that gets a vibrant display, a powerful processor, usable cameras, and a large battery to keep it all going. The charging speed is pretty basic though, and you get no wireless charging.
