Xiaomi’s latest mid-range smartphone, Redmi Note 9S was unveiled recently an we’ll walk you through its interior and exterior in detail. To begin with it does not disappoint at all for the price segment it has been launched in. In fact, the device offers pretty much all it can to stay true to the experience that Redmi Note users have come to expect now. Here’s everything you need to know about this powerful feature-packed smartphone from Xiaomi.
The Redmi Note 9S sports a unique notch-free square-shaped camera layout and side-mounted fingerprint sensor that also doubles up as a power button to provide fast and convenient unlocking. Featuring a 6.67” FHD+ DotDisplay with Redmi Note’s first-ever in-display front camera, Note 9S’s sleek and symmetrical design offers an incredible 91% screen-to-body ratio for an impressive immersive experience. The smartphone’s display comes with TÜV Rheinland low blue light certification to provide long-lasting eye comfort for its users. The Redmi Note 9S also takes forward Redmi Note’s legacy of developing high-quality phones with its splash-proof nano coating and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the both its front and back edges.
Xiaomi’s Redmi’s Note 9S is equipped with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset that is comprises of an octa-core CPU with a 2.3GHz maximum clock speed, Adreno 618 GPU and 8nm process technology. The Redmi Note 9S is basically all set to offer an enhanced user experience through its advanced adoption of AI technology and significant power-efficiency improvements. Moroever, the Note 9S is the first smartphone from the Redmi Note lineup to feature a Z-axis linear vibration motor. This motor enables faster acceleration resulting in better haptic feedback compared to traditional motors that most other smartphones in this segment usually come with.
The Redmi Note 9S is equipped with quite an impressive quad camera setup on the rear. This setup comprises of a 48MP main lens and a large 1/2” sensor for ultra-high-resolution day photos. Additionally, the smartphone’s 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens enables users to easily capture large group images, while its 5MP macro lens and 2MP depth sensor make the setup whole to empower users to capture beautiful images, every single time. Now the front camera – the front side of Redmi Note 9S hosts a decent 16MP lens for its in-display selfie camera. This in-display camera considerably minimizes the front screen bezels without compromising camera quality at all.
The smartphone is powered by a massive 5020mAh high-capacity battery that keeps users going throughout the day even with heavy usage. When it’s time to recharge, the device offers 18W fast charging and comes with a 22.5W in-box charger which means it can charge fully in less than an hour.
Redmi Note 9S definately qualifies as a mid-range winner as it has everything that you would want in a premium device – design, performance, camera quality and my favorite, side mounted fingerprint sensor. The only place it looses points is that the primary camera could have been 64MP instead of 48MP.
