Rumor | The upcoming premium version of the Redmi Note 9 will come with a 120Hz display and VRR
The Redmi Note series has produced some well-received affordable phones in 2020 thus far. Now, the prominent tipster Digital Chat Station claims to have material pointing to a new variant with a premium 120Hz refresh rate spec for its LCD display. However, confusingly, this phone is not to be the rumored Note 10 or X, but...another Note 9.
This putative device will also have AdaptiveSync for its display, which means it can also use refresh rate modes of 30, 48, 50, 60 or 90Hz, potentially on the fly depending on the content reproduced. The "new Note 9" may have a 4800mAh battery to power this feature.
This putative Ultra-level Note 9 is also slated for a typical brightness of 450 nits, as well as third-gen Sunlight and Reading modes. It may also have Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to protect this new display. Then again, Digital Chat Station did not mention anything about a 108MP main camera, even given the rumored scope for this spec in a new Xiaomi device that may well be this one.
