Xiaomi announced Redmi Note 9 series in the month of March, but the sale was not completed because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The series features two phones, the Redmi Note 9 Pro, and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. Of the two, it is the former that’s more modest in terms of specs, but still the device likely to garner more attention from buyers.
Now the company is ready to resume sales for the Redmi Note 9 Pro starting today at 12 PM through Mi.com and Amazon India.
