This will be the first time since 2016 that Xiaomi has used the Prime moniker for one of its smartphones. The Redmi 3S Prime was the last phone to launch with this name in 2016. Xiaomi has used the Pro moniker on the Redmi series but the Redmi 9 series brings back the Prime moniker. Also Read - Xiaomi Redmi 9 to launch on August 4 in India: Here are details

The Redmi 9 Prime is expected to replace the ageing Redmi 8 from last year. Given that the Redmi 8 still sells at a price of Rs 9,999, the new model could slot in at the same starting price. If it ends up being the Redmi 9 from Europe, buyers will be getting a couple of major upgrades over the outgoing model.

Redmi 9 Prime expected specifications and prices

As established, the Redmi 9 Prime is highly expected to be a renamed Redmi 9, unless there are some India-specific upgrades. The European version features a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display with a dewdrop notch on the top. It relies on a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset that’s paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. To keep the phone alive, there’s a 5020mAh battery.

For the cameras, there’s a set of four sitting at the back. The main camera is a 13-megapixel sensor that’s accompanied by an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera. You also get a 5-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera. The selfie camera uses an 8-megapixel sensor. Based on the Chinese prices, the Redmi 9 Prime could start from as low as Rs 9,999 for the base variant while the higher storage variants could slot in under the Redmi Note 9.
