Missing notification LED... solutions?

I just bought a Redmi 9 (I know this is a subsection for the Redmi Note, but I didn't find a section for my smartphone and I know that the Note should have the same problem), but I discovered that it doesn't have a notification LED.

It's really annoying not being able to see if the phone has notification just by looking at it. Are there solutions to this?

I tried the Always On Edge app (this one) and it does the trick, but unfortunately, not having an AMOLED display makes it drain too much battery for me...

Are there other solutions that don't kill the battery too much? How do you usually become aware of unread notification?

Ok sorry, but still, it's not an issue strictly related to the Redmi 9. The Note 9S has the exact problem... can't we pretend I've got that phone and still talk about the issue?

There arent much good alternatives if your phone doesn't got an amoled Display as aod takes too much battery as you already figured out.
I used this App in the past to receive a blink effect on my flashlight
Maybe that could be a help for you.
Btw on my note 9 pro I got the LED aswell.
Best regards
