The Redmi Note 9 Pro, on the other hand, will go on sale, as planned before today. Xiaomi says it decided to delay the sale of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max due to state lockdowns across the nation. Redmi India, the official Twitter handle of Xiaomi’s sub-brand, tweeted the news yesterday. The post notes that the first sale has been postponed to a later date. However, there is not much clarity on whether it will be available sooner or later.

Since major states have announced lockdowns to prevent the spread of Coronavirus in the country, Xiaomi seems to have been forced to take this decision. Even if customers order the smartphone, it would have been a challenge to deliver these devices on time. The government has made exception only for critical services while all other forms of activities have been curtailed. While Xiaomi fans won’t be able to buy the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, they can continue to get the standard model instead.
