Redmi Note 9S Overview
The minimalist design is further stretched to the front as well with the introduction of punch-hole cutouts. And, the Redmi Note 9S gets a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
On the front, the Redmi Note 9S flaunts a 6.67-inch IPS LCD Panel that stretches up to 85% percent; credits to the minimalistic punch-hole cutout.
Though it’s a full HD panel and it’s protected by Gorilla Glass 5 but it doesn’t include a higher refresh rate display. Well, this might be a problem for Redmi fans as its competition; Realme 6 does have a 90Hz display.
Like the Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9S also rocks Snapdragon 720G. It has a quad-core CPU with a max clock of 2.3 GHz and an Adreno 618 GPU.
If we compare the Snapdragon 720G with Helio G90T used on the Note 8 Pro, the 720G has a better CPU score than G90T but the G90T pulls ahead in terms of GPU scores.
Irrespective of the numbers, both of the chipset will provide identical performances but Snapdragon 720G is more efficient than the G90T as it’s built-in an 8nm process whilst G90T is built in 12nm process. This will ultimately lead to better battery and thermals on the Snapdragon 720G.
Furthermore, Redmi Note 9S has 6GB of RAM and 128GB (UFS 2.1) internal storage.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S also has the same camera setup as the Note 9 Pro. It gets a quad-camera setup on the rear with a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM2 main sensor. Whereas the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max have the 64MP sensor.
Except for this, Redmi Note 9S has an 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 5MP macro sensor. On the front, it has a 16MP sensor for selfies.
So, we’re getting a low res main sensor compared to Redmi Note 8 Pro whereas the macro sensor has been bumped up to 5MP from 2MP in Redmi Note 9S.
In terms of battery, the Redmi Note 9S gets a huge 5020 mAh battery along with 18W fast charging support.
Though, it’s a step up from Redmi Note 8’s 4500 mAh battery. It would have been better if it had the same 33W fast charging as the max version.
Moving on the Redmi Note 9S runs on Android 10 and MIUI 11. And it is eligible for future updates as well. It also retains the headphone jack if you care about that.
