Xiaomi India is going to host the first sale of its newly launched Redmi Note 9 today. Launched last week, the handset is a follow up of the company’s popular Redmi Note 8 Pro. The smartphone boasts of a new square camera module and a punch-hole display at the front. The company had also launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, a slightly beefed-up version, that will be going on sale later this month.
The new Redmi Note 9 Pro features a 6.67-inch full-HD+ LCD display with a punch-hole placed on top center and a quad-camera setup in a square module. Like the previous Redmi Note 8 series, it has Gorilla Glass on the front and back, but this time the cameras are also protected with the same. Other notable design features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner similar to the Poco X2 and the Realme 6 series.
The device is powered by the new 8nm-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G which should be more efficient and slightly more powerful than the 730G. The smartphone will be offered in two variants- 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. There is also a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the storage further.
The smartphone is priced at Rs 12,999 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, and Rs 15,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. Xiaomi India is offering Rs 500 off if you buy the phone from the company’s store using an HDFC bank card along with other EMI options. The Redmi Note 9 Pro will also be available on Amazon, where customers can get up to Rs 1000 off using HDFC Bank cards and EMI transactions. There is also an Airtel Double Data offer with Rs 298 and Rs 398 Unlimited pack recharges which also offers unlimited calling with Airtel Thanks benefits.
