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.

It has a 6.5-inch 90Hz FHD+ display protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, a centered hole-punch cutout for the 8MP selfie camera, and slim bezels on three sides.

On the back, the Redmi 10 Prime features a quad-camera setup with a 50MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. The phone also features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
