Xiaomi has increased the price of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and Redmi 8A Dual once again. The price of the mid-range Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has been hiked by Rs 500 while the Redmi 8A Dual has increased by Rs 300.
Notably, this is the second time the company has hiked the price of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max after announcing an increase of Rs 1,500 over its original launch price due to a 6% increase in GST on mobile phones.
Earlier this month, the company also hiked prices of the Redmi Note 8, Redmi 8, Redmi 8A Dual and Poco X2 in India without issuing any clarification. Xiaomi has earlier hiked the prices due to GST and subsequently cited supply chain issues due to the Coronavirus outbreak as a reason to increase the prices of some phones like the Redmi Note 8.
