Hence, lots to look forward to with the Redmi 10X series and if you want to know more about it, here's everything you need to know about it.
Redmi 10X series: All we know about it
-There will be three variants of the Redmi 10X. There's going to be a regular 5G model, known as the Redmi 10X and this will be accompanied by a Pro model, called the Redmi 10X Pro. A third variant of the Redmi 10X will cater to those who want a 4G model, which could also be made available for the global markets.
-Certain leaked certifications documents have suggested that the Redmi 10X will look similar to the Redmi Note 9 Pro from India, albeit with a few changes. The rear of the phone will have the same squarish camera bump with a quad-camera setup, headed by a 48-megapixel sensor. The teasers hint at a glass back too. The sides have the usual array of buttons but without a fingerprint sensor visible anywhere.
-This brings us to the display, which is set to get a bigger upgrade over what the Redmi Note 9 series has. The Redmi 10X will use a 6.5-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. The teasers have shown very thin bezels with a small waterdrop notch on the top holding the front camera. This display is also expected to have in-display fingerprint sensor.
-Redmi has confirmed that the Redmi 10X will run on MIUI 12 based on Android 10. This will make it one of the first few models to get Xiaomi's latest software skin. There will be new Always-On Display patterns for users to set and enjoy.
-A Weibo teaser suggested that the Redmi 10X will achieve an AnTuTu score of almost 410,000. Rumours suggest that Redmi will be using the brand new MediaTek Dimensity 820 chipset, which is a new 5G chip with emphasis on performance. This chip has been said to be as powerful as the Snapdragon 855 from last year.
-The Redmi 10X will get up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
-As said earlier, there will be a quad-camera setup on the Redmi 10X, with the main camera being a 48-megapixel sensor. This will be accompanied by three more cameras, mostly being an ultra-wide camera, a macro camera and a depth camera. The Redmi 10X Pro will have a different camera configuration, with Redmi confirming that it will be able to zoom up to 30X and feature OIS for better stability.
-Rumours suggest that the Redmi 10X series will be relying on a 4420mAh battery and will come bundled with a 22.5W fast wired charger.
-The Redmi 10X will come in multiple colours for different variants. The 5G variant will get light gradients of dark blue, gold, violet and white. The 4G variant is said to get gradients in light blue, green and white.
Redmi 10X expected pricing and availability
The Redmi 10X is most likely to replace the Redmi Note series in China. The Redmi 10X 5G and Redmi 10X Pro 5G could likely sit at a slightly higher price range than the Redmi Note 8 but stay below the Redmi K30 series in that market. The Redmi 10X 4G, meanwhile, is expected to be sold in global markets, with some of them probably getting it as the rumoured Poco M2 Pro.
