Update: Apparently, we've misread Xiaomi's message, and the company won't be launching the Redmi Note 2 Prime. Sifting through the comments on an official Xiaomi India Facebook post, we gather the upcoming smartphone will come with a 720p 5.5-inch display, while the Redmi Note 2 Prime packs a FullHD panel. Other comments give a throwback to the Redmi Note 4G, so Xiaomi might come up with an updated version of that model with a Prime moniker added. We'll just need to wait and see. The original text follows. Xiaomi is set to launch the Redmi Note 2 Prime on the Indian market. Amazon is teasing the launch with a dedicated poster, but a specific date is yet to be revealed. There's also no word on pricing just yet. The news of the market launch comes 3 months after the 4.7-inch Redmi 2 Prime was made available in the country, and about a fortnight after Xiaomi unveiled the successor, Redmi Note 3. The Redmi Note 2 Prime was announced alongside a non-Prime version some three months ago, the difference between the two being CPU clock rate and storage size. Both smartphones feature the Mediatek Helio X10 chipset, but the octa-core processor in the Prime can go as high as 2.2GHz, while the Redmi Note 2 is limited to 2.0GHz. Built-in storage is 32GB and 16GB, respectively. Other than that, the smartphone packs a 5.5-inch FullHD display, 2GB of RAM and 13MP/5MP camera combo. All of this is powered by a 3,060mAh battery. You can head over to Amazon and join the mailing list to get notified when the smartphone hits the shelves. Source 1 Source 2 |...
