Xiaomi has launched its latest affordable smartphone, the Redmi 9 Prime, in India. The budget phone, incidentally, was first launched in Spain in June, and has now arrived in India with an equivalent set of specifications that include four cameras at the rear .
The phone runs on Android 10 out of the box with MIUI 11. As already mentioned, it’s powered by a MediaTek Helio G80 processor under the hood including 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard storage that’s expandable via a microSD card.
For photography duties, the Redmi 9 Prime’s quad-camera setup houses a 13-megapixel main sensor which is paired with a 8-megapixel ultra-wide secondary camera along side a 5-megapixel macro shooter and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
For connectivity, the Redmi 9 Prime features 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, IR blaster, and a USB Type-C port. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and therefore the phone is provided with a P2i nano-coating that creates the device splash-proof.
The higher-end 4GB + 128GB features a tag of Rs 11,999. The Redmi 9 Prime are going to be first available during Amazon’s Prime Day sale on Transfiguration and can be put up purchasable on Mi.com, Mi Home Stores, and Mi Home Studios from August 17.
