Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime Features

Xiaomi is back with a successor to the Redmi Note 4G named the Redmi Note Prime. In terms of the details not much has been changed in the Redmi Note Prime on the outside as well. The phone has a very similar look & feel as the Redmi Note 4G.


On the front is the same 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 1280x720 with pixel density of 267PPI. The offering was quite decent at the time of Redmi Note 4G but the time has now changed & we expect Full HD resolution (1920x1080) to ship with the devices in the similar range especially for smartphones with 5.1 inch & above display size.


On the inside it has a Snapdragon 410 Quad Core chip clocked at 1.2GHz which is is bumped up a little from it’s predecessor and has 2GB RAM which should be sufficient for smooth multitasking.


The phone sports the same 13MP rear camera sensor with f2.2 aperture and 28mm wide-angle lens & can shoot videos up to 1080p resolution. Like the Note 4G the front is again a 5MP sensor for selfies.


Redmi Note Prime is powered by a 3100mAh battery which sounds good considering the specs and is coupled with battery saving features from MIUI. It is a Dual SIM 4G enabled device & now has an increased internal storage of 16GB which is expandable up to 32GB.


A major let down would be that the device still runs on Android 4.4 KitKat in an era of Marshmallow & running on top is the Xiaomi’s MIUI which is feature packed in itself. The device is currently available in White color only.
