Beginning of December 20 there was a rumor of a new upcoming phone called Redmi Note 9T, and 2021 began with the confirmation of it. The Spanish branch of Xiami tweeted a teaser about the launch on January 8 at 10 AM GMT, then the tweet was deleted shortly after.
A couple of minutes later Xiaomi accounts worldwide confirmed the phone but with a new time slot – 12PM GMT.

Another thing we can see and learn in the teasers is that the phone will have an oreo-shaped camera island, like the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. But, this time there’ll be only three cameras – we’ll wait for the launch this Friday to learn whether it is a main + ultra-wide + 2 MP depth combo, or the secondary shooter has been replaced with a dedicated macro.
