In Phones by Ramon LopezLeave a Comment

Xiaomi Philippines will announce the Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro in the country May 26, per the company’s official social media page. Yes, that’s a day before the launch of the Realme 6 Pro — and possibly the Realme 6 — for the local market.

(Update, May 26: It’s official in the Philippines! Read Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9 Pro priced from P7,990 ($158) in PH.)

Xiaomi’s virtual announcement will likely include pricing and availability details for the two smartphones, so we’ll just have to wait and see on the said date. But it’s possible that both devices will be priced cheaper in the Philippines than in some international markets. This is true for the Redmi Note 9S, which is cheaper here than what you’d pay for in other countries.

Redmi Note 9
