So the first device to be launched this year 2021 for Redmi is the Redmi 9T series, this is just one of 2 that was released early this year and definitely its a budget series. On specs sheet it is very much the same as the Poco M3, the only difference here is that this has the 8MP Ultrawide Sensor which the other one dont have.

It is by no brainer it is almost a carbon copy of the Poco M3, except that the camera module is back to the way it was, just the camera bump not a whole cover like what we saw on the M3.
After taking a quick phone tour, yeah it was almost alike alright, but what I like on this one is the generous Redmi Logo being engraved at the back, it kinda looks cool, but I miss the semi synthetic leather feel on the back of the Poco M3.
Now among the 4 colors available, my personaly favorite is the Tropical Blue. Whats your pick?
Okay judging from the photos and remembering the experience I had with the Poco M3, I can say that this phone takes the photo slightly faster than the M3 and somehow it looks a little more better and decent. Especially outdoors it looks pretty nice, the colors are really very sharp and nice.
Now comparing to the Poco M3, this one is a lot better, not only it has a better cam, the UI experience was a lot better and less lag.
