Xiaomi has long accustomed us to releasing alternative versions of its bestsellers, stamped Lite, Pro or even S. The Chinese firm has however chosen a little more originality with its new Redmi 10 Prime, a smartphone soon available in India and which could well arrive in Europe thereafter. It is indeed not uncommon for this type of version to begin first in South Asia before being marketed with us.
As its name suggests, the device borrows a lot from the Redmi 10. We thus find a 6.5-inch LCD panel in Full HD + definition (1080 x 2400 px) protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The panel has a ratio 20: 9 and is refreshed up to 90 Hz. Under the hood, there is a Mediatek Helio G88 engraved in 12 nm, coupled with 4/6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of storage. It is possible to expand the memory via a microSD card.
An SoC to manage more defined sensors? That’s good, the Redmi 10 Prime has a quadruple photo module. The main 50 Mpx module has a lens opening at f / 1.8. It is accompanied by an ultra-wide angle of 8 Mpx (f / 2.2) and two macro and depth sensors of 2 Mpx each (f / 2.4). At the front, an 8 MP (f / 2.0) module is housed in the central punch of the screen.
To differentiate itself from its cousin, the Redmi 10 Prime has a 6000 mAh accumulator on board. A substantial battery that should give it a lot of autonomy. An 18W USB-C charger is included in the box. It is also possible to use it as an external battery capable of recharging other devices up to 9 W (via a cable).
It will be available in black, white and iridescent blue from September 7 in the Indian market. The 4/64 GB model will be sold for around € 150 excluding VAT, while the 6/128 GB version will be around € 170 excluding VAT.
