Xiaomi Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9s, Redmi Note 9 Pro, and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max

Posted by

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9s, Redmi Note 9 Pro, and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max are all members of the Redmi Note 9 series. It is a mouthful and a handful. Four smartphone models, and to make it more complicated, each has variants.

For example, there are two variants of Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 9 Pro in production. There is an international version with a 64-megapixel main sensor at the back, and then there is the Indian version which has a 48-megapixel AI quad camera at the back. The rest of the world has the 64-megapixel version.

Then this international version has two variants of its own. The first one has 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM (storage memory), while the second has 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM. Do you get the picture? Xiaomi does not make it easy for you at all. It is a complicated clusterfuck.

One thing to note is that all four models – Xiaomi Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9s, Redmi Note 9 Pro, and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max – are essentially the same devices with some differences here and there. Sometimes, the differences are so insignifcant that you wonder why they have different names in the first place. Visually, they all look similar too. Here are the key specs below.
