Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime Arrives with Improved Storage

December 15, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Here’s Xiaomi up with yet another Prime version for one of its Redmi device. Much was speculated with the Xiaomi revelation and the grapevine was abuzz with talk of a new Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime that would get introduced to the Indian market.

But the Chinese manufacturer has decided to flip the table by bringing the Prime factor to an older device.

Xiaomi’s Redmi Note Prime is been exclusively launched in India, and would be made in India itself. We can’t spot any big display or performance improvement in the Prime addition, but its other segments have got better.


With the Prime in action, Redmi Note now receives support for 4G support for both the SIM slots.

The RAM choices has now been narrowed down to a single choice of 2GB RAM, and it also gets a boost now in the storage segment with 16GB of in-built space. Xiaomi has left the external slot intact with 32GB support.

We said before not to expect a performance bump. But that doesn’t mean that the hardware hasn’t been changed. Xiaomi has switched to the Qualcomm 410 processor from Mediatek for the Prime variant. The four A53 cores will come clocked at 1.2GHz.

Everything else remains the same for Redmi Note Prime; 13MP rear cam accompanied by 5MP front cam, 3100mAh battery, etc. They also haven’t tweaked the design for its first Prime device among Redmi Note. All these comes for a pricing of Rs. 8,499.

Overall, Xiaomi has managed only to dust off its old model with some cool additions here and there. For a market which hasn’t even seen the successor to the initial Redmi, this one should sound a fair deal.
