Last month, Xiaomi announced the brand new Redmi 10 smartphone in both Singapore and Malaysia. Now, the company has announced a slightly different variant dubbed as the Redmi 10 Prime in the Indian market that comes with a slightly buffed up battery capacity.

Just like the Redmi 10 smartphone, the Redmi 10 Prime is also powered by the same MediaTek Helio G88 chipset which will be paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card.
To keep the phone running through the day, the Redmi 10 Prime relies on a respectable 6,000mAh battery which carries support for 18W fast-wired charging and 9W reverse charging. On the software-side, the phone is shipped with MIUI 12 based on Android 11 out of the box.
