India was treated with the Redmi Note 9 series earlier this year. In March, Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max (review) and it announced the Redmi Note 9 (review) in July. This year, various smartphone OEMs in China have launched 5G phones across various price points. Since Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi wanted to launch 5G-enabled Redmi Note smartphones in China, it decided to skip the 4G-ready Redmi Note 9 series phone that were made available in India.
Today, the company confirmed that the Redmi Note 9 5G series will be debuting in China at 8 PM CST on November 26th. The launch poster released by the brand has revealed the design of the alleged Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G smartphone.
