Xiaomi's Redmi Note 9 series had just started rolling out in India before the country went into lockdown. We did review the Redmi Note 9 Pro, but its more premium sibling, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, couldn't get to us in time. That's not all, the very first sale of this device had to be cancelled, and we've even had a GST hike leading to increases in the prices of all variants since they were first announced. India is a cost-sensitive market, so will higher prices and the lockdown dampen buyers' response to this phone, or will there still be excitement? We can finally take our first look at the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max to find out.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is a big smartphone and you will notice it the moment you lay eyes on it. Xiaomi has opted for a big 6.67-inch display with a full-HD+ resolution. We found this screen to be a bit too tall for comfortable single-handed use, as it isn't easy to reach the top. It is an LCD panel with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. The company also claims to have used an anti-oil and anti-fingerprint coating on the top. We could still see a few smudges on the screen despite this. Another thing that will stand out is the hole-punch at the top centre of the display. The Redmi Note 9 Pro (Review) and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max are the first budget devices from Xiaomi with this feature

Xiaomi has managed to keep the bezel size down to acceptable levels but the chin is still quite thick. Pick the phone up and you will notice its heft. The device tips the scales at 209g which could be down to the fact that it packs in a massive 5020mAh battery. Xiaomi has curved the back of the phone along the edges which makes it comfortable to hold.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is offered in three colour variants: Glacier White, Interstellar Black, and Aurora Blue. We have the Interstellar Black colour variant with us and it looks blue when light strikes it. The rear panel of the smartphone is super glossy and picks up smudges very easily. Xiaomi does supply a case in the box, which you can use to prevent this.

Now that we have taken a good look at the device itself, let's take a look inside. The first thing that pops out is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC. This is a powerful SoC, and we have already put it through its paces in our review of the Realme 6 Pro₹ 17,999 (Review). Xiaomi offers the Note 9 Pro Max in three variants: 6GB / 64GB, 6GB / 128GB, and 8GB / 128GB. The base variant now starts at Rs. 16,499 in India, while the top variant is priced at Rs. 19,999
