Xiaomi finally launched its newest devices, the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, earlier today. The new Redmi mid-rangers start at an extremely affordable US$175 and offer incredible value for money as is the norm with the series.
Ricci Rox,

Earlier today, Xiaomi's budget sub-brand, Redmi, finally unveiled its newest devices, the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max for the Indian market. As egregious as the naming scheme is—obviously copying Apple's current flagships—the phones look to take on the mantle of Xiaomi's mid-range devices of choice.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max both feature 6.67-inch FHD+ IPS displays in a 20:9 aspect ratio. The displays are, sadly, mundane 60 Hz panels.  Both phones are powered by the recently released Snapdragon 720G. 

While the Redmi Note 9 Pro maxes out at 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, the Max variant adds an extra 2 GB of RAM to its top configuration, making for 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Both phones opt for UFS 2.1 storage, too, which is a welcome feature in this segment of the market.

Camera hardware is another aspect where the phones differ. While the Redmi Note 9 Pro feature a 48 MP main shooter, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max sports a 64 MP main sensor. Both phones feature quad-rear camera setups, with those main sensors assisted by an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 5 MP macro lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. 

The selfie cameras are also different, with the Redmi Note 9 Pro sporting a 16 MP sensor, and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max opting for a 32 MP shooter.

Both phones are powered by 5020 mAh battery, but while the Redmi Note 9 Pro only has support for 18 W fast-charge, the Redmi Note 9 Pro bumps things up with 33 W fast-charging.
