India’s Redmi 10 Prime will use the same Helio G88 chipset as the global Redmi 10
Xiaomi’s Manu Kumar Jain confirmed that the Redmi 10 Prime will be powered by the same Helio G88 chipset as the Redmi 10. Furthermore, he described the new phone as a “significant upgrade” over last year’s Redmi 9 Prime and 9 Power.
The “Prime” was just a rebranded Redmi 9 for the Indian market, the only notable difference being the omission of NFC. The “Power” was a significantly different from the vanilla 9 with a Snapdragon 662 (instead of a Helio G80), a 48 MP main camera (instead of a 13 MP module) and a 6,000 mAh battery (up 1,000 mAh).

Whether or not we get a “10 Power” model this year is unclear, so far but the Redmi 10 Prime is shaping up to be a rebrand of the global Redmi 10. The teaser page for the phone described a “superstar camera” (50 MP, if it indeed matches the global model), a high refresh rate screen (should be 90 Hz) and stereo speakers.
The Redmi 10 Prime will be officially unveiled at noon September 3 in India, there’s no word on pricing yet. Considering that Amazon India retweeted one of the Prime-related tweets, it’s a safe guess that it will carry the new phone.
Here’s a teaser video for the phone and its Helio G88 chipset:
