There are 3 series announced:

  • Redmi Note 9 (the vanilla variant)
  • Redmi Note 9 Pro
  • and Redmi Note 9S

Previously, the company announced Redmi Note 9 Pro and Pro Max for Indian and Chinese markets.

However, it seems the company rebrands both phones with slightly different naming nomenclature for global market.

Redmi Note 9 Pro that comes with 48MP main camera is coming for global Mi Fans as Redmi Note 9S.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, interestingly, is called as Redmi Note 9 Pro for the global release.

This will make some confusions for users not following Xiaomi news. Just like happened with Redmi Note 5 Pro (India) and Redmi Note 5 (Global). Both have same codename as Whyred since the specifications are similar.

Redmi Note 9 Pro is the same as Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, Redmi Note 9S is basically Redmi Note 9 Pro

Confuse not!
