Xiaomi Mi 9T recently bagged certifications from Thailand’s NBTC which revealed the moniker officially. The same phone with model numbers M1903F10A/C/T/G/I have been certified in Malaysia, Russia, Taiwan and India as well. Xiaomi Mi 9T was expected to be released as Poco F2, as per a few rumors. But today’s Geekbench listing confirms the codename of the phone as ‘davinci’, which is the same name assigned to Redmi K20 phone.
Mi 9T has 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 730 SoC and runs Android Pie OS. The phone has scored 2325 points in single-core and 6358 points in multi-core score in Geekbench. Even the Geekbench scores are pretty much similar to the scores of Redmi K20 phone.
Xiaomi, as well as Huawei and Oppo, have the habit of assigning different names to their phones outside China. For example, Xiaomi Mi 6X was released in China and it was renamed as Xiaomi Mi A2 for other markets. Similarly, Redmi 5 Plus was released in China and was renamed as Redmi Note 5 in India. Xiaomi Mi 9T has now joined the bandwagon and will be the name of the Redmi K20 phone in other countries apart from China (and India).
Xiaomi recently launched Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro in China on 28th of May. The company has also confirmed that the K20 series phones will be released in India in mid-July. Xiaomi Mi 9 was released in February 2019 and the company will officially release the ‘T’ variant on June 12, which is about a week from now.
