Do you get charged import duty and tax from buying from Gearbest?
Sorry if dumb question but is this the same phone as this https://www.eglobalcentraluk.com/xiaomi-mi-9-6gb-128gb-dual-sim-ocean-blue.html ?
It depends on what they want to do as the Mi series Is flagship level, so one would expect it will not be exactly the same as the K20 Pro. The specs will be inline with the Mi9 Same lenses as the MI9 or improved.( Mi9 Battle Angel uses a 1.4 aperture lens) Qi 27 watt charging across the board. IR They may even remove the 3.5mm phone back, as this seems to be what's happening at the top end and Mi users are already used to not having it.
So it's possible that the Mi9T Pro if and when it does arrive, will have the same hardware as the Mi9 and not the K20 Pro..?
Mi9 has better len's and a CLM system , i haven't seen this confirmed on the K20/Pro. The camera department would be where Redmi would make cuts, when something is cheaper and made by the same company there is always a reason why.
