Redmi announced the Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max in India in March. The Note 9 Pro went on sale in the country on March 17, but sales of the Max variant were delayed due to the drop in COVID-19.
However, the Chinese phone maker has announced that the Note 9 Pro Max will be available for purchase in India from May 12 via Mi.com.
Redmi’s announcement comes days after the Indian government eased restrictions on the country’s blockade and allowed e-commerce companies to deliver irrelevant products to areas marked as orange and green.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is available in three versions of memory: 6 GB / 64 GB at the price of INR 16,499 (220 USD / 200 €), 6 GB / 128 GB at the price of INR 17,999 (240 USD / 220 € ) and 8 GB / 128 GB, which costs INR 19,999 (265 USD / 240 €). Note that the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max was released at a lower price, but was more expensive due to an increase in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) last month.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is powered by a Snapdragon 720G SoC and, right out of the box, works with an MIUI 11 Android 10. It is built around a 6.67-inch FullHD + screen that has a hole in the middle for a 32MP selfie camera at the top.
On the back, you place a quad-camera composed of 64MP central units, an ultra-wide 8MP, a 5MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor. The smartphone comes with a side fingerprint scanner and has a 5,020 mAh battery, with 33W fast charging support.
