Amid a lot of speculations on social media from last few days, Xiaomi finally unveiled NOT-SO-MUCH-AWAITED Redmi Note Prime in India.

After Redmi 2 Prime, this is the second handset to be manufactured by Xiaomi in India.
An upgrade from its original model Redmi Note 4G, Redmi Note Prime runs on Qualcomm® Snapdragon 410 Cortex A53 Quad Core CPU, clocked at 1.2GHz & Adreno 306 GPU. Original Redmi Note used to flaunt Qualcomm® Snapdragon 400 Cortex A7 Quad Core CPU clocked at 1.6GHz along with Adreno 305 GPU. Not a very tempting upgrade considering this to be a new generation model of original Redmi Note 4G.xiaomi-redmi-note-prime-specs

We all know that Xiaomi can’t sell MediaTek devices in India after Ericsson alleged infringements of its patents relating to 3G, AMR, 2G & EDGE technologies. This is why original Redmi Note 3G was discontinued from Indian market after a sweet initial success and also the reason Xiaomi still did not utter any word on the launch of Redmi Note 3 in India.

Apart from a slightly bumped up Processor the major enhancements in Redmi Note Prime includes 16Gb Internal Storage with 32Gb external SD Card support & Dual SIM 4G connectivity.

Redmi Note Prime is priced smartly @Rs. 8499 keeping in mind the competitors it’s going to face. The biggest competitor for Redmi Note Prime will be COOLPAD NOTE 3 which is a MediaTek device but boasts 3GB RAM along with fingerprint scanner @Rs.8999. Other noticeable competitors of Redmi Note Prime are Lenovo A7000, Lenovo K3 Note, MEIZU M2 NOTE & Honor 4C.

This might be due to a high commission charged by Flipkart’s WS Retail which was speculated to be 10% during previous exclusive launches.
