The Mi 9 SE has been spotted on Xiaomi's Global Compliance page, which alludes heavily to the device being set for a global launch. On the flip side, Redmi has confirmed that the Redmi Note 7 Pro will not join the regular Redmi Note 7 on the global stage, and will instead remain exclusive to India and China.

Xiaomi released the Mi 9 SE alongside the Mi 9 last month as something of a cheaper alternative. The device has since gone on sale in China but new information points towards it making its way into the global market too.

Last year’s Mi 8 SE never made it out of China, so just about everyone expected its successor to do the same. However, the Mi 9 SE has been spotted on Xiaomi’s Global Compliance page, which hints heavily towards a global launch. 

On the other hand, Xiaomi’s sub-brand, Redmi, has confirmed that its latest device, the Redmi Note 7 Pro will not be sold globally. The device has been launched in the Chinese and Indian markets, and those are the only regions where it will be sold. 

We’re not sure why the company made this decision; it just launched the cheaper Redmi Note 7 for the global market a short while ago, and the Redmi Note 7 Pro is an even more impressive device. It wouldn’t be surprising if this was done to prevent cannibalization of sales of other Xiaomi devices; in particular, the aforementioned Mi 9 SE.
