Xiaomi has today launched the successor of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G in India, called the Redmi Note Prime. When Xiaomi started promoting #PrimeIsComing, all Xiaomi fans were excited and hopeful that finally the Chinese manufacturer is bringing Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Prime in India, but instead Xiaomi launched a minor upgrade to the already existing Redmi Note 4G.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G will be exclusively available on Snapdeal for 8,499 INR. The major change is in chipset. The new Redmi Note Prime is powered by Snapdragon 410, with 2GB RAM and double 16GB storage. Xiaomi has also added an extra SIM card slot and both support 4G.
Software is Android 4.4 KitKat based MIUI7. Android 4.4 KitKat is certainly dated since it is almost 2016. Other features are same as Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G. The display is 5.5 Inches in size and bears 720P HD resolution. For photography, there is a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera.
Design and build is also exactly same. The back cover is glossy and the phone is overall a bit chubby. Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime might not be a bad deal for its price, but a phone which resembles what Xiaomi first launched couple of years back and with only marginal improvement on the inside, not to mention Android Kitkat based software, is definitely lackluster. We are used to Xiaomi wooing us with incredible price-performance ratio devices and Redmi Note Prime simply doesn’t fit the bill.
