Redmi Note

Chinese phone manufacturer, Xiaomi, has released another smartphone. This new smartphone, the Redmi Note Prime, is its second handset made in India. The first was the Redmi 2 Prime.

The new Redmi Note Prime has a 5.5-inch IPS display, 2 gigabytes of RAM and, thankfully, its 16GB internal memory is expandable. If you remember, I lamented the non-expandable 16GB memory of the Mi 4 during my review.

The phone also packs in a 3,100mAh battery and is powered by a Snapdragon 410 SoC processor with a quad core CPU that clocks 1.2GHz. The Redmi comes with a 13MP rear facing camera, a 5MP front facing camera and runs Android 4.4 KitKat-based MIUI 7. It offers 4G support and has dual-SIM slots.

Manu Jain, Xiaomi’s India Head, said, “With the launch of Redmi Note Prime, we are glad to provide our Mi Fans an opportunity to upgrade to an even more powerful smartphone with an expanded memory and dual-SIM capabilities.

He added that “Local manufacturing shows Xiaomi’s commitment to being a part of fabric of India and we are truly excited to roll out our second ‘Made in India’ offering for our Mi fans.”

The phone will cost INR 8,499, which is around $125, and is currently exclusive to Amazon India. There’s no news on when it will ship to African markets yet.

With social media giant Facebook looking to be saddled with more deceased user accounts than living by 2100, there is an increasing need to think about what happens to our digital assets after we pass on.
