Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S Review

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S Review


The Redmi Note 9S has been unveiled in an online event streamed via YouTube and Facebook. This phone is the Malaysian version of the 9 Pro, with nearly the exact same specs, as projected earlier. However, it is also to be released internationally in April 2020. We recently reviewed the Redmi Note 9 Pro and were really impressed by its performance and battery backup. Among the features that really excited us include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, the new “Aura Balance Design,” and the massive 5,020mAh battery which easily lasts for two days. The phone also features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of one mounted on the back.

The phone comes with a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM2 sensor. Besides the primary camera, there’s an 8MP wide-angle camera, a 5MP macro camera with autofocus, and a 2MP depth sensor, nested in a square arrangement. There’s a 16MP hole-punch camera on the front.

The Redmi Note 9S also features a 6.67-inch Full HD+ “DotDisplay” with a hole-punch in the center. The display, as well as the back panel, are protected under a layer of Gorilla Glass 5.
