Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro is set to go on sale in India on May 18 at 12 noon. The smartphone was launched back in March, but the company has not been able to run enough sales due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. With restrictions being eased for e-commerce platforms as well as retailers, Xioami has decided to bring back its flash sales on Amazon.in and Mi.com
While many will be able to buy the Xiaomi smartphone tomorrow, the people living in Red Zones or containment areas will still have to wait for a while. This should at least help the manufacturer to sell some units as compared to the month of April where all the brands had zero sales.
As for the pricing, Redmi Note 9 Pro is available for Rs. 13,999 and Rs. 16,999 for the 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB models respectively. The smartphone is available in Aurora Blue, Glacier White and Interstellar Black colour variants.
As these are just the initial sales, Xiaomi also has a couple of offers available. ICICI credit cards users will be able to avail an instant discount of Rs. 1,000. Airtel users will get double data with benefits with Rs. 298 and 398 Unlimited Packs.
In terms of the specifications, the dual-SIM handset features a 6.67-inch fullHD+ IPS LCD display. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. All of this is backed by a 5,020mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.
On the optics front, the Redmi Note 9 Pro sports a quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 48MP primary camera paired with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5-megapixel macro sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Upfront, there is a 16-megapixel camera on the front.
