The much-anticipated Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime has finally been launched in India and can be purchased via Amazon or the company’s official website. The handset retails for Rs 8499 and is the brand’s second Made in India offering after the Redmi 2 Prime.
Like its predecessor, the Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime was manufactured by Foxconn at Sri City, Andhra Pradesh. The new phone features a decent set of specs for the entry-level market segment. While it runs on the company’s latest MIUI 7 OS, the software is based on the older Android 4.4 KitKat. Visuals can be viewed through a 5.5-inch IPS screen which comes with a resolution of 720 x 1280p.
The dual-SIM Xiaomi device contains 16GB of internal memory. Users who run out of space can add up to 32GB of extra memory via a microSD card slot. A 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor fuels its daily activities with the assistance of an Adreno 306 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
Coming to its camera department, the Redmi Note Prime carries a 13MP snapper accompanied by features like zero shutter lag, an aperture of f/2.2, a 28mm wide-angle lens and LED flash. It’s paired with a 5MP shooter on the front surface. The smartphone derives its juice from a 3100mAh battery, which supposedly provides 775 hours of standby time and 38 hours of talk time.
