Highlights
  • Redmi Prime will launch in India on August 4th
  • The smartphone will go on sale on Amazon following its launch
  • Redmi Prime could be a version of the Redmi 9 or Redmi 9A

Xiaomi has announced it will be launching a brand new smartphone in India next week. The company has revealed that the Redmi Prime will launch in India on August 4th at 12pm IST and the smartphone will go on sale through Amazon. The company has teased that the phone could be called the Redmi 9 Prime and it could be a rebrand of the Redmi 9 or Redmi 9A that were launched globally last month. Xiaomi has already launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, Note 9 Pro, and Note 9 phones in India. The Redmi Prime smartphone is expected to be a budget phone that may fall under Rs 10,000.

Xiaomi has not revealed much about the Redmi Prime yet, but the company has teased that phone will come with a waterdrop notch and will look to deliver a powerful gaming performance. We expect the company to reveal more features about the Redmi Prime in the days leading up to the launch. 

Assuming that the Redmi Prime is a version of the Redmi 9A budget smartphone, we can perhaps expect an HD+ display, a MediaTek G25 chipset, a 13MP single rear camera, and a 5,000mAh battery. If the Redmi Prime is a rebranded Redmi 9, we can then expect to see a FHD+ display, a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, 13MP quad cameras, and a 5,020mAh battery.
