Redmi 9 Prime launched in India; quad-camera and big battery on a budget

Xiaomi has launched the latest smartphone in its affordable Prime series, the Redmi 9 Prime. Even though it is a budget smartphone, Xiaomi goes all out in the camera department and packs in a quad-camera setup at the back. There's also a large battery and a Full HD+ display, a rarity in this price segment.

The Redmi 9 Prime sports ‘Aura 360 Design’, a variation of what it calls ‘Aura Design’ that we’ve seen on Xiaomi smartphones since last year.
