Xiaomi India has confirmed last week that the Redmi 9 Prime will go official in the South East Asia country on August 4 which is just two days away. Now, the device which is an offshoot of the Redmi 9 still falls under the entry-level category but in a surprise twist, the company has disclosed that the Redmi 9 Prime will come with Full HD+ display.
This was made known by Xiaomi India MD Manu Jain via a post on Twitter. The Xiaomi exec also touts the device to present with best-in-class features that no other phone offers in the price band. That is an indication that the Redmi 9 Prime will still retain the affordable pricing the Redmi 9 series is known for.
The Redmi 9 Prime is said to be a rebranded Redmi 9 global variant that was first announced in Spain back in June. So we don’t expect any difference in the spec. The model should pack a 6.53-inch display with a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC providing the firepower.
