Xiaomi Mi 9T initial review
Physically, you’ll love the Mi 9T Pro. It has the same feels with the Mi 9T (check our review here). As we said, there’s is no much change in the physical looks. The “upgrade” done is what’s under the hood – SD 855, which is the latest flagship chipset, the “faster” in-display scanner, and the 27W fast charging.
