The Redmi K20 Pro is expected to be called the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro in the West. Xiaomi

The Xiaomi Mi 9T launched earlier this month, being a rebranded version of the Redmi K20. The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro has now popped up online too, suggesting that the Redmi K20 Pro is indeed getting the rebranding treatment as well.

Xiaomi’s latest device landed on the Bluetooth SIG website yesterday, confirming the Mi 9T Pro name, a model number (M1903F11G), and MIUI 10. There isn’t much else to go on, but the model number is indeed similar to the Redmi K20 series (M1903F11A, M1903F11C, M1903F10A).

If this is a rebranded Redmi K20 Pro, then we’re in for a rather fantastic device on paper. That means a Snapdragon 855 flagship chipset, a full-screen OLED display with in-display fingerprint sensor, a 20MP pop-up selfie camera, a normal/wide/telephoto rear camera trio (48MP/13MP/8MP), and a 4,000mAh battery with 27 watt charging speeds.

The standard Redmi K20/Mi 9T differs from the Pro variant by offering an upper mid-range Snapdragon 730 processor, slower charging speeds, and a different 48MP sensor (IMX582 versus the Pro’s IMX586). Otherwise, you’re still getting a pop-up selfie camera, OLED screen with in-display fingerprint sensor, triple rear camera, and 4,000mAh battery too.

This isn’t the first time the Mi 9T Pro name has appeared online though. Polish and Russian outlets previously reported that the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro will launch as the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro in these markets. An XDA member also spotted Mi 9T Pro branding in the MIUI Camera app earlier this week. Would you buy the Mi 9T or the Pro model? Let us know in the comments!
