Redmi’s most awaited Note 9 series was launched in India today. The series is especially exciting because it marks the comeback of the Mi Max series in another form. Xiaomi’s Mi Max series was known for its cinematic displays and phablet form factor. However, the Chinese tech giant decided to discontinue the lineup after the release of the third generation.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, on the other hand, gives Mi Max fans what they were longing for all along. It comes with a large display topped with a compact and symmetrical body

Design and Display

The smartphone comes with what Xiaomi calls the Aura Balance design, which, according to the company, places a lot of importance on symmetry. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max comes with four cameras on the back, which are housed on a square camera bump. The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the side. It is available in three colors: Aurora Blue, Glacier White, and Interstellar Black.
