The Redmi Note 9, which was launched in India in June initially came in three colour variants- Aqua Green, Arctic White, and Pebble Grey. Just before the Amazon Prime Day sale in August, a fourth colour variation was introduced, which was the Scarlet Red variation. Now the company has tweeted about the launch of a new colour which is the Shadow Black colour.

Well, it would be totally wrong to say that this new colour scheme is completely new, as Redmi Note 9 was already available in a black shade for the global market launched way back in August called the Onyx black and now the company has announced the same colour variant for India, just by changing the name to Shadow black.

But, there is a confusion in pricing, as per the tweet, the pricing of the phone is to be ₹11,499 (4GB + 64GB). But as per Mi’s official website, the price is marked at ₹10,999 for the same variant. The Shadow Black variant is also available in the 4GB + 128GB storage variant for ₹12,999 and in the 6GB + 128GB storage variant for ₹14,499.

Till now, Redmi India has not made any official statement regarding the conflicting prices mentioned in its tweet and in its official Mi website of the Redmi Note 9 Shadow Black variant. So, there is a confusion regarding the 4GB + 64GB variant’s price.
