Xiaomi has today launched its latest budget phone – the Redmi 9 Prime – in India. The phone is essentially a repackaged Redmi 9 that was launched for the European market back in June, but it does pack quite a punch for its price point and also manages to look appealing with its clean design and gradient finish on the rear panel.

Redmi 9 Prime packs a 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS display with a waterdrop notch and is powered by the MediaTek Helio G80 processor paired with 4 gigs of RAM. The quad rear camera setup includes a 13MP primary snapper, an 8MP wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The device comes equipped with a beefy 5,020 mAh battery that also brings 18W fast charging support to the table.
