Xiaomi today unveiled its latest entry-level smartphone, the Redmi 10 Prime. Xiaomi installs a 90 Hz fast 1,080 p + display, a massive battery, and a 50 megapixel f/1.8 main camera in the particularly large camera module despite the comparatively low price.
The all-new Redmi 10 Prime relies on a design that looks almost confusingly similar to the regular Redmi 10, and there are also many overlaps in terms of equipment. The battery is probably the most significant innovation, which holds a considerable capacity of 6,000 mAh in the Redmi 10 Prime. Charging is via USB-C. Wireless charging is not supported. After all, the Redmi 10 Prime can be used by cable as a power bank to charge other devices.
Xiaomi uses a MediaTek Helio G88 that combines two powerful ARM Cortex-A75 cores at 2.0 GHz with six efficient Cortex-A55. The display offers an IPS panel with a diagonal of 6.5 inches, a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels, and a frame rate of at least 90 Hz. The 8 megapixels f/2.0 selfie camera sits in a centered punch hole, while the back houses a comparatively large, rectangular camera module.
This includes the 50 MP f/1.8 primary camera, the 8 MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera, and two 2 MP sensors. Videos can be taken at a maximum of 30 frames per second in 1,080 p resolution. The Redmi 10 Prime will ship with MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11. The smartphone does not support 5G, so users will have to settle for LTE, Wi-Fi 5, and Bluetooth 5.1. The fingerprint sensor sits on the side of the case.
The Redmi 10 Prime is launched first in India. There, the model with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB flash memory costs 12.499 INR (about Ksh 19,000), for the top model with 6 GB or 128 GB will be 14.499 INR (KSH 22,000) due. Information on the international launch has not yet been provided.
