The all-new Redmi 10 Prime is a Redmi 10 with a bigger battery

Last month, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched the Redmi 10 in various markets. However, the company didn’t launch the budget-friendly device in India. That’s because Redmi had reserved the Redmi 10 Prime for the Indian market, which is essentially the same phone with a bigger battery.
