On March 12, Xiaomi announced the launch of the Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in India. Back then, Xiaomi’s plan was to sell the Redmi Note 9 Pro starting March 17. Redmi also revealed that the first sale for the Pro Max was scheduled for March 25. While the first sale of the Note 9 Pro did take place as planned, Redmi was forced to postpone all future sales (including the first sale of the Pro Max) because of the initiation of the ongoing pan-India lockdown which started on March 25.
With the central government recently announcing the relaxation of norms in orange and green zones, Redmi recently held the second flash sale for the Redmi Note 9 Pro. Now, fans of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max will finally be able to purchase the phone later today.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, like its less-expensive sibling, will be on sale via Amazon.in and the Mi.com store. As the norm usually is with Xiaomi flash sales, this sale is also scheduled for 12 noon today.
