A Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S has been tested on the AnTuTu benchmark and has offered up an appropriate mid-range score of 280,529 points. This puts the new smartphone in the same ballpark as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, although the two devices use processors from different companies. The Redmi Note 9S is a rebranded Redmi Note 9 Pro for certain markets.

A new AnTuTu benchmark score for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S has been shared online, and it seems the smartphone managed to rack up 280,529 points (see image below). This puts the device past smartphones such as the Xiaomi Mi 9T and Samsung A71; however, it fell short of the Redmi Note 8 Pro. AnTuTu’s Android chart has a recorded score of 291,733 points for the Redmi Note 8 Pro, and it managed 282,085 points in the same benchmark in our review.

There have been some comments about the discrepancy in performance between the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S and Redmi Note 8 Pro, especially as the former is basically a rebranded Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro for markets such as Malaysia and Pakistan. It seems reasonable to expect a performance improvement from the Redmi Note 9S. However, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro relied on the slightly more powerful Mediatek Helio G90T SoC whereas the Redmi Note 9S features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G.

The Helio G90T has overall faster CPU speed and higher RAM speed than the SD 720G. So it is clear to see why the older Redmi Note 8 Pro might outperform the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S (Redmi Note 9 Pro) in this particular benchmark. But it seems likely Xiaomi was all too aware of the considerable heat development that negatively affected the performance of the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Our own tests demonstrated how load caused overheating with the older phone, so the Redmi Note 9S should offer similar performance but hopefully without the same heat issues.
