Xiaomi’s latest smartphone is an updated version of the Redmi Note called the Redmi Note Prime.

No, it’s not as powerful as the Redmi Note 3 or even the Redmi Note 2. But the Redmi Note Prime has a slightly better processor and more storage than the company’s original 5.5 inch smartphone… and more importantly, the new model is made in India and sold in that country, where neither the Redmi Note 2 nor 3 are available for purchase.

The Redmi Note Prime features a 5.5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel IPS display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, and a removable 3,100 mAh battery… just like the original Redmi Note smartphone.

But the Prime model has a Snapdragon 410 64-bit chip rather than a Snapdragon 400 processor. And the new phone also has 16GB of built-in storage, which is twice as much as the original.

The phone goes on sale in India this week for about $127.
