The Redmi 10 Prime will come with an octa-core MediaTek Helio G88 SoC, confirmed on Friday by Xiaomi India Managing Director and Global Vice President Manu Kumar Jain. The chipset was released in July and first introduced on Redmi 10, released earlier this month. Confirmation from the MediaTek Helio G88 further suggests that the Redmi 10 Prime will likely be a Redmi 10. The Redmi 10 comes with a perforated screen and a quad rear camera configuration. It also includes up to 6GB of RAM and a maximum of 128GB of onboard storage.
Manu Kumar Jain has tweeted a screenshot to confirm that MediaTek Helio G88 will power the Redmi 10 Prime. The executive also mentioned that the new phone will be a “significant update” over the Redmi 9 Prime and Redmi 9 Power.
The teaser posted by Jain comes just days before the release of Redmi 10 Prime in India, which is scheduled for September 3rd. The smartphone is speculated to come as a rebranded Redmi 10 that launched globally earlier this month with the same MediaTek Helio G88 SoC.
Earlier this week, Xiaomi teased that the Redmi 10 Prime will come with a perforated screen design, adaptive refresh rate and dual microphones. The smartphone was also seen last week on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) website with model number 21061119BI, where the ‘I’ at the end indicated that the model could be specifically for the Indian market.
Redmi 10 Prime Specifications (expected)
Considering that speculation of being a rebranded Redmi 10 is gaining traction, the Redmi 10 Prime will likely include a 6.5-inch (1080×2,400 pixels) AdaptiveSync full-HD+ screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate and a configuration rear quad camera with a 50 megapixel primary sensor, along with an 8 megapixel selfie camera sensor on the front. It can also include a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging and 9W reverse charging.
Along with the Redmi 10 Prime, Xiaomi is launching its new True Wireless Stereo Headphones (TWS) on September 3rd. The headphones will likely be the Redmi AirDots 3 that initially arrived in China earlier this year.
