The Redmi Note 9 Pro is almost upon us, and Geekbench may have given us an insight into what chipset Xiaomi has chosen to power its upcoming mid-range handset. Seemingly choosing to do battle with the Realme 6 Pro, the Redmi Note 9 Pro will feature the Snapdragon 720G and 6 GB of RAM. Geekbench hints that Xiaomi may have a performance edge over Realme, though.

Xiaomi will announce the Redmi Note 9 series next week, and now it seems that Geekbench has revealed what chipset will grace the Note 9 Pro. While we already know that the device will feature four rear-facing cameras, the processor that will deliver the device's stated "Max Performance" remains unconfirmed.

However, that chipset may be the Snapdragon 720G, according to Geekbench. Brought to our attention by @Sudhanshu1414, Geekbench identifies the SoC of a purported Redmi Note 9 Pro as the "ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 15 part 2052 revision 15". This the same identifier found in a listing for the Realme RMX2061, the codename for the Realme 6 Pro.

Realme equips the 6 Pro with the Snapdragon 720G, so it follows that the "ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 15 part 2052 revision 15" in the Redmi Note 9 Pro is the same chipset. Interestingly, the Redmi Note 9 Pro achieved a better multi-core score than the Realme 6 Pro, despite having 2 GB less RAM. While the Realme 6 Pro seems able to only scrape a multi-core score of 1,700 at best, we would not recommend drawing any conclusions from one benchmark.
