Xiaomi launches the Redmi 10 Prime with a 90 Hz display, a 6,000 mAh battery and a 50 MP camera
Last month, Xiaomi started teasing the Redmi 10 Prime, the successor to last year's Redmi 9 Prime. As expected, the Redmi 10 Prime shares many of its components with the Redmi 10, which Xiaomi announced in August. There are a few differences between the pair, though.
In terms of similarities, the Redmi 10 Prime has a 90 Hz LCD that is 6.5-inches across and operates at a native 2,400 x 1,080-pixel resolution. A MediaTek Helio G88 lies at the heart of the Redmi 10 Prime, which Xiaomi has supported with up to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. There is also a microSD card slot to supplement the built-in eMMC 5.1 storage, should you need more.
The device has a 3.5 mm jack, a USB Type-C port and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner too, along with five cameras. The Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 Prime have identical cameras, with a 50 MP primary sensor complemented by an 8 MP ultra-wide, an 8 MP selfie shooter, and dual 2 MP rear-facing sensors to capture depth of field information and macro images.
Xiaomi has equipped the Redmi 10 Prime with a 6,000 mAh battery though, 1,000 mAh more than the one in the Redmi 10. Hence, the Redmi 10 Prime is approximately 10 g heavier than its sibling at 192 g. Similarly, the Redmi 10 Prime is 9.6 mm thick, 0.7 mm thicker than the Redmi 10.
The Redmi 10 Prime will be available in India from September 7. The handset will start at INR 12,499 (~US$171), with the price rising to INR 14,499 (~US$198) for the 6 GB/128 GB model. The Redmi 10 Prime comes in Phantom Black, Astral White and Bifrost Blue too, but Xiaomi has not confirmed if it plans to sell the device globally.
