Two months after the launch of Redmi 9, Xiaomi launched it today in the Indian market with a slightly different name. It is named Redmi 9 Prime & except for the name, it is basically the same phone.
REDMI 9 PRIME – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
Redmi 9 Prime comes with an Aura 360 Design & there is an anti-fingerprint ripple texture, so it is also easier to grip the phone. There are Quad cameras on the rear & so is the fingerprint scanner. The camera setup also has a smooth circular design around it that looks pretty unique. On the front, there is a display with a waterdrop notch.
In short, the phone has a beautiful design, something which we don’t often see in the budget segment. The phone comes with a P2i coating which means the phone is splash-proof. Also, the display is TUV Certified & the buttons, as well as the ports, feature water-tight seals. Finally, there is a USB Type-C port on the bottom.
Coming to the specifications now, the Redmi 9 Prime has a 6.53-inch Full-HD+ LCD panel protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. In this price segment, most brands offer HD+ displays on phones, so it is great to see Redmi offering Full-HD+ panel instead. There is Reading Mode 2.0 as well as Dark Mode.
Under the hood, the phone packs the powerful MediaTek Helio G80 chipset & it comes with the Mali-G52 GPU clocked at 950MHz. In this price, this is perhaps the best performing SOC that you can get in a device.
Also, instead of launching the base variant of the phone with 3GB RAM, Redmi is launching the base variant with 4GB RAM & 64GB storage. There is also a 128GB storage variant. Thanks to the triple card slot, the storage is expandable via a microSD card up to 512GB.
The Quad camera setup on the rear includes a primary 13 Megapixel camera, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a third 5 Megapixel macro lens & a fourth 2 Megapixel depth sensor. On the front, there is an 8 Megapixel camera for selfies.
Finally, the Redmi 9 Prime has a massive 5,020mAh battery & supports 18W Fast Charging via Type-C port. It is worth mentioning that in the box, you get a 10W Adapter.
