Xiaomi Redmi 9 Prime is confirmed to feature a Full HD+ display, as revealed by Manu Kumar Jain, Global VP and MD of Xiaomi. The Redmi 9 Prime is scheduled to launch on August 4 in India as the latest phone in the company’s budget segment. The phone has been teased to feature a Full HD+ display with a waterdrop notch and it looks like the Redmi 9 Prime is going to be a lot more similar to the Redmi 9 that was launched earlier last month.

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 Full HD+ display with a 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.
