- Redmi Note 10 could be coming to markets by the end of this month.
- India might get the Redmi Note 10 sometime in November.
- It is said to be a rebranded Mi 10T Lite that launched in Europe.
Xiaomi is planning a new Redmi-branded phone for its home market. A new leak has claimed the Redmi Note 10 is in the making and it will bring some serious upgrades over its prequel Redmi Note 9. Since China did not get the Redmi Note 9 series alongside the Indian market, it makes sense for Xiaomi to launch the next-generation series in its home market. The Note series by Redmi is about interesting hardware for low price, which is why the Redmi Note 10 is heavily rumoured to come with a 108-megapixel camera.
According to the credible tipster Digital Chat Station, Redmi Note 10 will launch in China by the end of October. There are no concrete launch dates spilt out yet. Redmi will likely make an official announcement sometime ahead of the launch. The tipster has also suggested the Redmi Note 10 could arrive in India by November, which sounds logical because Xiaomi traditionally launches a new Note-series device around the festivals in India. Its Redmi Note 10 will likely ring in the Diwali season.
It is becoming too mainstream for Chinese smartphone brands to rename their handsets for different markets. Xiaomi is charged as guilty for doing this, especially under the Poco brand. The Redmi Note 10 will be no different either. The tipster has said it will be a rebadged version of the Mi 10T Lite that debuted in Europe sometime back. While the Redmi Note 10 might end up getting the same hardware as that of Mi 10T Lite, the Redmi Note 10 Pro will trade in the 108-megapixel camera with the 64-megapixel camera on its back.
Since the 108-megapixel camera is going to be expensive, Redmi is planning to cut down on the number of other cameras. Redmi is poised to include a single macro camera alongside, ditching all other standard ones: the ultrawide, the portrait, and the black-and-white sensors. It is practically an interesting move for Xiaomi because it is one of the companies that popularised multi-camera setups on phones. Going back to giving just two might or might not go down well with customers.
The Redmi Note 10 will be a 5G smartphone that will support all carriers in China. But since the device is expected in India, Redmi will make some changes. According to the tipster, there will be a Snapdragon 720G chipset on the device that will bring good performance while leaving out 5G capabilities that do not seem feasible for India as of now. The Redmi Note 10 could also have a higher refresh rate on its display but there is a chance the company might give you options to choose for the display type. Much like Realme, Redmi could give you a 90Hz LCD on Note 10 and an AMOLED display on the Note 10 Pro. Nothing is confirmed though.
We will have to see what Redmi has in store for us and what it plans to bring with its uber-hit Note series.
