Xiaomi introduced the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max phones last week in India. The Redmi Note 9 Pro flash sales have already begun, while the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max first flash sale was slated to be held on March 25. However, due to multiple state lockdowns, Xiaomi has decided to postpone the sale of the ‘Max' variant to a later date. The lockdowns are imposed to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 disease in the country.
Xiaomi India chief Manu Kumar Jain tweeted that the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max sale has been postponed to a later date. He didn't reveal the exact date on which the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max will now go on sale, but said that the first sale has been postponed due to state lockdowns. The Redmi Note 9 Pro sale will still happen as scheduled. The phone will go on sale today at 12 noon IST via Amazon India, Redmi India's official site, Mi Home, and Mi Studio Stores. Redmi Note 9 Pro will be available in Aurora Blue, Glacier White, and Interstellar Black colour options.
