The Smartphone Copies Files Three Times Faster Than Redmi Note 8 Pro.
“Another tipping point in mid-range smartphone performance.”
At the time of the announcement of the Redmi Note 9 5G and Note 9 Pro 5G smartphones, the company representatives noted the use of fast UFS 2.2 memory in them. And now the details on this matter have arrived, and immediately from the mouth of the head of the brand, Lu Weibing.
In his post on the Weibo social network, the top manager cited a video comparing the speed of copying files of Redmi Note 9 5G and Note 8 Pro. Alas, the source does not provide the video itself, there is only a screenshot, but from the inscriptions, one can understand that the new product copies data three times faster. This is because the sequential write speed of UFS 2.2 reaches 500 MB / s (and even higher), while the sequential write speed of UFS 2.1 is about 250 MB / s.
A well-known insider hiding on Weibo under the nickname Digital Chat Station has already tested the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G memory subsystem and confirmed Liu Weibing’s words: the sequential read speed was 996 MB / s, the sequential write speed was 499.5 MB / s. Perhaps, it is the high speed of UFS 2.2 that explains the high speed of saving 100-megapixel images in this smartphone.
According to the top manager of Redmi, UFS 2.2 is “another tipping point in the performance of mid-range smartphones.” By all appearances, Xiaomi will mainstream to UFS 2.2 in its next mid-range smartphones.
