At the launch event, the brand had announced that the Redmi Note 9 Pro will go on sale in the country on 24th March and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max will go on sale in the country on 25th March. While the first sale of the Redmi Note 9 Pro will commence as scheduled, the brand has now announced on Twitter that the first sale of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has been postponed to a later (Unannounced) date.
COVID-19 Situation Causes Delay in The First Sale of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max
According to the brand, the reason behind postponing the first sale date of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is the ongoing nation-wide lockdown in the light of the COVID-19 situation. Although Xiaomi did not go into the specifics of the problem they are facing, it looks like the brand was not able to procure the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max units for the sale as transportation in the country is running at a slow pace due to the COVID-19 situation. If the lockdown continues for long, there is a possibility that other brands might also face the same issue as Xiaomi.
