One of Xiaomi’s priority markets is India and to keep the momentum high here, it comes up with India-first launches quite often. The Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max are this year’s first new announcements from Xiaomi under the Redmi brand and they have caught attention quite a lot. We reviewed the Redmi Note 9 Pro and it left us thoroughly impressed. Xiaomi now wants to repeat the same for other markets.
Xiaomi has just the begun the Mi Fan Festival 2020 in China and to mark the occasion, it has launched a new model in the Redmi Note 9 series. It’s called the Redmi Note 9S MFF 2020 Limited Edition (that’s quite a mouthful). Unlike previous launches, Xiaomi has not gone wild with the specifications of the phone or the availability or pricing yet. All it has done is shown the phone.
And from what it seems, the Redmi Note 9S is essentially a renamed Redmi Note 9 Pro from India. The phone has the same design at the back and front, which gives out a lot about this one. Additionally, the Redmi Note 9S even appears to have the same quad camera system with a 48-megapixel main camera.
Since this is a special edition model, there’s a logo of the Mi Fan Festival 2020 sitting above the Redmi branding. The phone also appears to only come in a single grey variant, which could be due to the limited edition nature of the product. Xiaomi says it will only make 2020 units of the phone all over the world to commemorate the occasion.
The Redmi Note 9S will then end up with the same set of the specifications as the Redmi Note 9 Pro. You can expect the phone to be powered by the same Snapdragon 720G chipset that will be paired with up to 6GB RAM. The 5020mAh battery should keep the phone alive along with the 18W fast-charging system. All the other highlights such as the 6.67-inch LCD display, the 48-megapixel Samsung GM2 sensor for the main camera and that stunning design will be reserved for the Redmi Note 9S.
It remains to be seen whether Xiaomi does a Redmi Note 9 for the Indian market this year. Rumours suggest that Redmi is working on the Redmi 9 that will come with a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. A new quad-camera setup is also expected to make debut on the Redmi 9 series.
