Is this Android phone Android 9.0 or Android 6.0? [Resolved]

I purchased an XGody Mate 20, advertised as Android 9.0.

Indeed, if you switch it on Settings -> About Phone reports Android 9.0:

Android 9.0

However, when I plug the device in, Android Studio reports it to be Android 6.0:

Android 6.0

Also the DevCheck Android App also reports the device to be Android 6.0.

Is there any way to find out which is it really? I bought this under the understanding it was an Android 9.0 device.
