Xiaomi is going “prime” with its budget Redmi series again with the newly launched Redmi 9 Prime. The last Redmi phone to get the prime treatment was the Redmi 3s Prime which was launched back in 2016. Also, for some more background, the Redmi 2 Prime was Xiaomi’s first smartphone to be assembled in India. The goal with the Redmi 9 Prime seems simple. The Redmi 9 Prime is simply a “lite” take on the Redmi Note 9 which means that it tries to bring many of the same “Note” hardware specs to an even more affordable price point.
