yeah very tempting to get from taobao already.

Anyone have experience with china rom? let's say if self install google play and services, without root/unlocking. Can Gpay nfc payments still work? I read online can't as the play store is not certified.

Actually what are the disadvantages of china rom besides no play store etc? What else are we missing?

ya, taobao price seem great. just worry about whether can global rom them
from what they say here can global rom when out but you need to unlock your bootloader and flash. After that must remember not to lock the bootloader anymore if not will brick

So far I check Taobao those that direct send to Singapore selling the 6/64 pro at 2899-2999
I bought 256gb redmi pro at guangzhou at 2999 rmb. Should have bought another set. It is currently sold out. Only 128gb version available.

Sources confirmed for k20 pro will be coming to Sg as the Mi9T series, for Sg market (donno about Malaysia) Redmi will be relegated to entry to mid range, all high range will be carry by Xiaomi, so (for now) even if Redmi come out with flagship phone, in Sg it will be migrated to under xiaomi brand


Again this is why I am calling Singapore (including Thailand it seems) as tier 3
Market where lower volume of sales expected but higher price to cover (partly becos due to high cost of overheads in Sg esp when the distributors are by 3rd parties eg. Mi store

At least we’re getting it. And plus, Xiaomi is a more recognisable name compared to Redmi, so this should somewhat help the sales.

Saw on yt that Mi 9T is SD 710 version, not even the K20 pro SD855 version. Hopefully we can get the K20 pro soon

aliexpress has the k20 pro global rom version but seems like the sellers are just installing the global rom on the china version.

Another source confirm for ph mi9T is k20 which I will assume mi9T pro will be k20 pro

Hence lend credibility to the above post of flashing mi 9 T with the beta rom
