A few days ago, Xiaomi launched its Redmi Note 9 Pro smartphone in India. But at the time of the launch, the company also dropped a ‘surprise’ in the form of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. This is the more powerful variant in the new series and was supposed to hit the shelves on March 25 but it looks like those who wanted to get their hands on the particular smartphone, will have to wait for a few more days. This news comes from Xiaomi’s Redmi India handle on Twitter. The announcement states that the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max’s first ever sale has been postponed. However, the company has not yet revealed the next date when it will be going on sale.
Xiaomi cites ‘recent state lockdowns’ as the reason for the delay. This is understandable considering the coronavirus outbreak and how government is asking more people to stay at homes so the COVID-19 virus doesn’t spread more.
On the brighter side, Xiaomi reconfirmed that the sale of Redmi Note 9 Pro will take place as scheduled. The sale will be today at 12 noon.
