Redmi 9 Prime Expected Specifications
As of now, the company has only teased a Full-HD+ display with a notched design to house the selfie camera. If rumours are true, the Redmi 9 Prime could be the same as the Redmi 9 which means that we can expect a 6.53-inch full-HD+ 1080 x 2340 pixels display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and 400 nits brightness. The phone will also feature an octa-core MediaTek Helio G80 processor, paired with Mali-G52 GPU, up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage with the ability to expand using a microSD card.
In the camera department, expect a 13-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera with f/2.2 aperture, a 5-megapixel macro camera with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is also an 8-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. Just like the Redmi Note 9 series, this one also comes with a 5,020mAh battery but with slower 18W charging support. Rest of the features that we are expecting on the Redmi 9 Prime include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi Direct, FM Radio, NFC, GPS, AGPS, 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port, a rear fingerprint sensor and an infrared port.
