Recently, the Xiaomi M1902F1G was certified as Xiaomi Mi 9 in Singapore. Hence, it is speculated that the M1902F1A and M1902F1T phones that were 3C approved in January are the variants of the Xiaomi Mi 9. The M1902F1A has already appeared on TENAA, but its listing is yet to be populated with specifications and images. Last night the M1902F1T was also approved by TENAA. Yet again, there is no information on its specifications of the M1902F1T variant. These certifications suggest that the Chinese manufacturer is gearing up for the introduction of the Xiaomi Mi 9. Rumors have claimed that the Mi 9 may go official in February.

Recently, a Weibo user had to the official Weibo channel of Xiaomi mobile, “Can you tell whether the Xiaomi Mi 9 will be releasing in February? Can you reply with a dog’s head expression? A Xiaomi responded with the suggested expression indicating that the Mi 9 could be launching in February in China.

Last year, Xiaomi had introduced the Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone alongside the Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Mi 8 SE smartphones on May 31 in China. There is no confirmation on whether the Chinese manufacturer will be unveiling the Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer Edition and Mi 9 SE smartphones alongside the Mi 9.
