The latest addition in the ranks of the Redmi brand is the Redmi 10 Prime, which debuted earlier today in India. It boasts similar all-around specs to the global Redmi 10 with the only difference being the larger 6,000 mAh battery.
Redmi 10 Prime brings a 6.5-inch LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution. There’s a 50MP main cam with an f/1.8 aperture around the back next to an 8MP ultrawide snapper and two 2MP modules for macro shots and depth data.
MediaTek’s Helio G88 sits at the helm aided by 4/6GB RAM and 64/128GB storage.
The 6,000 mAh battery should help the Redmi 10 Prime power on for longer than its global counterpart. When you do need to charge up you’ll have to make do with the 18W USB-C charger included in the box. You can also use the 10 Prime as a power bank and reverse charge other devices and accessories (via cable) at 9W speeds.
The software front is covered by MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11.
Redmi 10 Prime comes in Phantom Black, Astral White and Bifrost Blue colors. The 4/64GB trim retails for INR 12,499 while the 6/128GB model will go for INR 14,499. First sales start on September 7 via mi.com, Amazon India and partner retailers across India.

is g88 is an upgrade when compared to g85/80? i don't think so. There aren't many changes.
