Chinese smartphone maker, Redmi, launched the Redmi Note 9 series smartphones in India earlier last week. The series features two phones, the Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
Despite being the more modest of the two, the Redmi Note 9 Pro has emerged to be the smartphone which has garnered the greater more attention from buyers. And understandably so.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro is the direct successor to last year's Redmi Note 8 which emerged as one of the best selling smartphones from the company in 2019. This budget segment warrior from Xiaomi's sub-brand is set to go on another sale today and will be available on Xiaomi India's official website and Amazon starting 12pm today.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro will be available in three colours -- Interstellar Black, Glacier White and Aurora Blue -- and will be available in two variants, 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. The price of the Note 9 Pro starts at Rs 12,999, while the higher end variant is up for sale at Rs 15,999.
