On the exterior, the Mi 9T Pro looks exactly the same as the Mi 9T. It still features a 6.39″ Full HD+ AMOLED display and has an in-display fingerprint sensor. There’s no punch-holes or notch at the top since the device comes with a 20MP pop-up selfie camera.

Under the hood, the device runs on a flagship Snapdragon 855 processor instead of an upper-mid-range Snapdragon 730 unit on the non-pro model. For Malaysia, it comes with 6GB RAM and UFS 2.1 storage options of 64GB or 128GB which isn’t expandable.
