Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 9S Is Available In South Africa From R5 400

Xiaomi isn’t a new name on the local smartphone scene but it’s a name that’s gotten lost in the noise due to a lack of new products and presence in the public eye. That appears to be changing lately as Xiaomi has announced that the Redmi Note 9S will be available in South Africa.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G consisting of an octa-core CPU with a 2.3GHz maximum clock speed, Adreno 618 GPU and 8nm process technology, as well as its 5020mAh high-capacity battery keeps users fully powered throughout the day, even during heavy usage. When it’s time to recharge, the device offers 18W fast charging and comes with a 22.5W in-box charger.

As the first smartphone in the Redmi Note lineup to feature a Z-axis linear vibration motor, the Note 9S enables faster acceleration, resulting in better haptic feedback compared to traditional motors.


Touting an all-new, notch-free design, Redmi Note 9S sports a unique square-shaped camera layout and side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Featuring a 6.67-inch FHD+ DotDisplay with Redmi Note’s first-ever in-display front camera, the device boasts a 91% screen-to-body ratio and offers TÜV Rheinland low blue light certification to ensure long-lasting eye comfort.
