Mere months after Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 series, they are back again with its successor. Interestingly, there’s no Redmi Note 9, which we presume is preserved for another launch but Xiaomi did unveil the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The Max is a better variant considering it’s got more RAM and storage options compared to the Redmi Note 9 Pro, higher megapixel count cameras and a faster 33W charger in the box.
Both phones come with a 6.67-inch FHD+ dot display and are powered by Qualcomm’s 720G processor. The Redmi Note 9 Pro starts from 4GB of RAM and goes up to 6GB whereas the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max starts from 6GB and goes up to 8GB. Both feature an Aura Balance design that improves on the aura design that Xiaomi has used with its previous devices and brings Gorilla Glass 5 protection to the front, back and the camera sensor glass. Moreover, there’s a side-mounted fingerprint sensor along with P2i hydrophobic coating, reinforced corners, IR blaster and dual pyrolytic sheet.
On the camera front, the Redmi Note 9 Pro features a 48MP main sensor and 16MP on the front whereas the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max comes with a 64MP one at the back and 32MP on the front. The other three sensors – 8MP ultra-wide, 5MP macro and 2MP depth remain the same in both the phones.
Redmi Note 9 Pro Max will be available in Interstellar Black, Aurora Blue and Glacier White colour options from March 25 in 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 128GB storage variants for Rs. 14,999, Rs. 16,999 and Rs. 18,999 respectively while the Redmi Note 9 Pro will sell from March 17 in 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB storage variants for Rs. 12,999 and Rs. 15,999.
