The Xiaomi Redmi 9(₹ 10999 at croma) Prime will officially launch on August 4 in India, the company has confirmed. The Redmi 9 series was launched earlier this month with three smartphones, the Redmi 9, Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C. Now, it looks like Xiaomi is preparing to launch the Redmi 9 Prime as its new budget offering that will go on sale on Amazon India.

The Redmi 9 series succeeds the Redmi 8 lineup from last year that aims to offer value for money phones for people who are on a tight budget. While Xiaomi hasn’t confirmed any specifics about its upcoming smartphone, the Redmi 9 Prime is expected to come with waterdrop notch cutout and splash-resistance. There are speculations that the Redmi 9 Prime could be a rebranded version of the Redmi 9 with some India-centric features.
