Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro series – the Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max a couple of months back in India. While the Redmi Note 9 Pro went on sale on the 17th of March, the sales of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max got affected due to the ongoing coronavirus lockdown. The company has now announced that the handset will go on sale from May 12 (tomorrow) at 12 PM IST via Amazon India and Mi Store.
Xiaomi’s Global VP Manu Kumar Jain took to Twitter to share the news, although the changes got reflected prior to the announcement on Mi Store and Amazon India’s dedicated landing pages. It is worth keeping in mind that the device will be available to buy only in areas categorized as green or orange zones by the Indian government.
