Xiaomi launched Redmi 9T globally as Xiaomi’s latest Redmi-series phone. This device is a rebranded version of Redmi 9 Power which was launched in India last month, with few changes. It offers quad rear cameras, Android 10 and under the hood octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC.
If you are someone who is wondering whether this device will get the official Android 12 update, then let’s find out. In this article, we will make sure to update you on all the Redmi 9T Android 12 related news, information, downloads, and also guide you to flash the firmware on your device.
Will Redmi 9T Get Android 12 Update?
As we know, this device has received the Android 11 update very recently, then we doubt the release of the Android 12 update for this device very soon. Xiaomi Redmi 9T came out of the box with Android 10 based on MIUI 12, and there is no info on when Redmi 9T will get the Android 12 update.
However, if you are here to know the exact date, we regret it because there is currently no such news coming out from the official’s side. But, it is confirmed that by the end of 2021, you’ll for sure get the update. Because Xiaomi is promised to deliver 2 major OS updates for their device.
Xiaomi Redmi 9T – Device Overview
The Xiaomi Redmi 9T features a 6.53 inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The display goes all the way up to 400 nits, and it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The processor inside the smartphone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 which is built on an 11nm manufacturing process. This is a year-old processor designed for mid-range devices, and Xiaomi is definitely looking to cut some corners in terms of price by included an old processor with this smartphone. It is an octa-core processor with four Kryo 260 Gold cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and four Kryo 260 Silver cores clocked at 1.8 GHz.
In terms of camera, we get a quad-camera setup at the rear, and a single low megapixel camera at the front. The quad-camera setup comprises a 48Mp primary sensor paired with an f/1.8 lens, an 8MP ultrawide sensor paired with an f/2.2 lens, a 2MP macro sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens, and a 2MP depth sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens. Coming to the front, we only get a signal 8MP sensor paired with an f/2.1 lens. Both the front and the rear setup are only limited to 1080p video recording.
The smartphone runs on Android 10 out of the box with MIUI 12 skin on top of it. There are three storage options for the smartphone: 64GB + 4GB RAM, 128GB + 4GB RAM, and 128GB + 6GB RAM. There is a dedicated slot for microSD expansion too. In terms of communications, we get Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, Infrared port, FM radio, and USB Type-C 2.0.
