Redmi Note series has single-handedly changed the concept of how affordable a mid-range smartphone can be with high-end specs. The only thing Redmi lacked till now was an affordable 5G smartphone in the Redmi Note series. Last month, they finally unveiled the new Redmi Note 9 4G, Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G in China. That said, there has been rumour regarding a possible rebrand for the Redmi Note 9 5G as Redmi Note 9T outside China.
Earlier today, the M2007J22G model number surfaced on Thailand’s NBTC certification labelled as Redmi Note 9T. For those who are unaware, the model number of the Note 9 5G is M2007J22C and its global variant has the M2007J22G model number. So far, the NBTC listing only confirms the device is labelled as Redmi Note 9T.
It looks as Redmi will sell the Redmi Note 9 5G as Redmi Note 9T in markets such as in Thailand and Malaysia. Although we don’t have any concrete evidence to prove the same as of yet. But its not the first time that Redmi is rebranding one of its smartphones. Recently, the Poco M3 was introduced as Redmi Note 4G in China with minimal changes. The upcoming Redmi Note 9T might retain most of the specification of Redmi Note 9 5G. The company hasn’t made an official statement regarding the device as well. We might have to wait for till then, But judging by the certifications this soon after China, the global launch seems imminent.
