The chipset that has been used in this smartphone is the MediaTek Helio G80. This is not the favorite of all but still, you can trust in this as far as the price range is low.

The camera has become one of the main features of any smartphone. And the brands are also trying their best to come up with the best. In this Redmi 9 Prime, you will get a quad-camera setup as the rear camera setup. In which there is;

Security has become one of the main factors as the government of India has some strict guidelines for this. But although this smartphone is launched after the guideline was made and the government has banned 59 apps due to security reasons, this smartphone uses the banned apps for cleaning and security purpose. In which the security purpose completely vanishes as the app itself is declared as unsafe and has been banned in India. Although the company has given some letters in writing that they are working on it, but still they used the banned app. Now time will let us know that how they will remove this app or what kind of update will be there, but till then this specific Redmi 9 Prime has this banned app as the security app. Clearly, as per the government guideline, this is purely unsafe.

Price: This price of Redmi 9 Prime starts from INR: 9,999/-

This has another variant which is the 4GB and the 128GB variant which costs INR: 11,999/-

NOTE: Although this time Redmi tried their best to fulfill all the required criteria but somewhere they were not able to fulfill the basic and the most important thing which is the security. If they update something and clean this from the device then this smartphone will be worth the price and the other features are very decent compared to the price range. You can go for this smartphone but only after the security app is updated. Till then recommending this smartphone will be misguiding as our government has banned this app.

Stay Safe, Stay Updated.
