The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is a well-designed smartphone with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 based on its back panel and a 2.5D curved finish on the front. Like most mid-range smartphones, the frame is made from plastic and can quickly get scratches and dent marks if not handled carefully.

Its design is also straightforward, with a single punch-hole camera centered around the top. It comes in three color options black, blue, and white.
