As for the Redmi Note 2 Prime, some people have been trying to compare it with Apple's iPhone 6. Dubbed as the "Apple of China," Xiaomi has had the reputation of announcing devices that resemble the design and look of the iPhones.

However, this time around, can the Redmi Note 2 Prime stand a chance in the specs department?

Based on the report by NDTV Gadgets, the Redmi Note 2 Prime is higher midrange device that is aimed at the mass market. The Xiaomi smartphone packs a 5.5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, 2GB of RAM, a Helio X10 chipset (2.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 + 2.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53), an option for either 16GB or 32GB of built-in memory and a 3,060mAh battery.

The device also boasts a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front shooter for selfies. In the report, the device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop skinned by the highly popular MIUI 7 ecosystem. The Android-powered smartphone also comes with the usual connectivity options such as GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, plus it supports dual 4G LTE standby.

However, what makes the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Prime enticing for shoppers is its pricing. In the report, the device will only cost CNY 999 in China, around Rs. 10,000 in India, and about $160 in the US, which is pretty cheap.

Given the specs list of the device, the smartphone will surely be a good sell for budget shoppers who want to have a bigger smartphone. No wonder, the device is seen as a competitor of the iPhone 6, especially in emerging markets.
