The Redmi Note 9 Pro model is currently on sale in India and is in high demand. This model was launched in March of this year.
However, Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro 5G are full of distinctions in specification and design. In India, Redmi phone fans will have to wait for the latest 5G edition or purchase the 9 Pro itself.
This is a comparison of Redmi Note 9 Pro Vs Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G
