Redmi Note 9 Pro or Redmi Note 9 Pro Max? Things You Should Know Before Buying One of These Smartphones

Not too long ago, smartphones were considered to be an expensive affair. Back in 2013, if you had to buy a decent smartphone, you either had to depend on mobile devices offered by Indian smartphone brands like Micromax and Karbonn, or you had to shell a considerable amount to purchase a Samsung mobile phone. Today however, you can purchase an excellent smartphone for as little as Rs. 10,000, and this transformation happened because of Xiaomi offering feature-rich phones at affordable prices.

Two of Xiaomi’s top budget smartphones are the Redmi Note 9, and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. While both the smartphones belong to the Redmi Note 9 series, they are different in terms of their price tags and their features. If you’ve been looking around for a new smartphone, and have shortlisted these two devices, here are a few things you have to know before you make your purchase.

Before we get into the details, Redmi Note 9 Pro Max costs around Rs. 16,000, while Mi Note 9 pro costs around Rs. 17,499. Both smartphones are considered to be the best at their respective price points.


The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max flaunts a 6.67-inch full HD display, while Redmi Note 9 comes with a comparatively smaller 6.53-inch screen. It isn’t a significant difference, and one can enjoy almost similar viewing and gaming experience on both the smartphones as far as displays are concerned.


One of the reasons why Redmi Note 9 has become a fan favourite, is because it packs a quad-rear camera set-up at a pocket-friendly price. This smartphone comes with a 48MP primary sensor, while the Note 9 Pro Max, which also sports a quad-rear camera configuration, comes with a slightly better 64MP primary shooter. The difference is more palpable when it comes to the front cameras, as Note 9 Pro Max houses a 32MP front camera, while Mi Note 9 sports a 13MP selfie shooter.

RAM + ROM combination

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD card. Mi Note 9, on the other hand, packs 4GB RAM, and comes with 64GB internal storage, which can also be expanded up to 512GB by using a microSD card.


When it comes to the batteries, both the smartphones house a similar 5,020mAh battery under the hood, which supports quick charging. There isn’t much to deliberate upon when it comes to the smartphone battery, as they both house best-in-class batteries.


Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC, while Redmi Note 9 is powered by the gaming-centric MediaTek Helio G85 chipset. Furthermore, Note 9 Pro Max comes with the Adreno 618 GPU, while Redmi Note 9 comes with the Mali-G52 GPU.

As you can see, both the smartphones are powerhouses. While Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is a beast in the sub-16K price range, Mi Note 9 is one of the best smartphones in the budget segment, packing top-of-the-line features and specs.
