Most likely you have already heard about the new smartphone Redmi Note 9S, which was introduced a couple of days ago. Also you probably know that this is a global or international version of Redmi Note 9 Pro, which was presented a few weeks ago.
New smartphone Redmi Note 9S has exactly the same design and specifications as Redmi Note 9 Pro. In this regard, I will not dwell on a detailed review of the new Xiaomi smartphone.
But many people still have a question – which smartphone to choose: Redmi Note 9 Pro or Redmi Note 9S? If specifications and design do not differ, it would seem, who cares what smartphone to buy? However, there are some differences, and let’s talk about them.
Global or Chinese version?
Chinese version of Redmi Note 9 Pro smartphone supports global mobile networks, so you can use 3G or 4G LTE connection in any country of the world, just like Redmi Note 9s.
Google services and apps
However, Redmi Note 9 Pro smartphone is designed for the Chinese market. As you know, Google applications and services are blocked in China. That’s why Redmi Note 9 Pro has no pre-installed Google services. Of course, installing Google Play Store, YouTube, Maps and other applications is not a big deal, but it takes time and some knowledge.
If we talk about the international version of Redmi Note 9s, this smartphone comes with Google applications out of the box. You do not need to install anything yourself.
The next difference is language support. Most likely, Redmi Note 9 Pro has only a few languages, such as Chinese and English. Of course, you can install Spanish, German or any other language using different tricks and instructions, but again, you need a time to do this.
Global version of Redmi Note 9S comes with all popular languages, including English, Spanish, and others.
Price of Redmi Note 9s and Redmi Note 9 Pro
The last difference between the Chinese and global version of the smartphone is the price. No doubt, Redmi Note 9s will cost more than Redmi Note 9 Pro. This is a common practice of Chinese smartphone manufacturers, when they release their mobile devices to the international market.
The new smartphone Redmi Note 9s will go on sale in Malaysia on April 7. When it will be available in Europe, US and other countries, as well as its official price – it is still unknown.
I know a lot of people have been waiting for NFC in the global version of Redmi Note 9S, but it looks like it will not be available.
By the way, Xiaomi has released the smartphone Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, which is also the same as Redmi Note 9 Pro, but it has 64 megapixel main camera. Will the global model of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max be released with 64 megapixel main camera? Not reported either.
