The Redmi Note 9S was a great mid-range device, but it still didn’t have what it takes to fully replace the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Well, fret not, as the recently launched Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro are going to be launched here in Malaysia on 11th May.

The new members of the Redmi Note 9 family will complement the Redmi Note 9S, by slotting in below and above the price segment which the Redmi Note 9S currently occupies.

Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro to launch in Malaysia on 11th May 22

The Indian pricing of the Redmi Note 9 Pro (marketed as the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in India) is a lot more affordable, and we can expect to see our local pricing to be somewhere in between the global pricing and the Indian pricing. All will be revealed on 11th May, so stay tuned!

Pokdepinion: I hope the Redmi Note 9 Pro’s 64MP camera performs at least on par with the Redmi Note 8 Pro’s!
