- The Redmi 10X 5G series has been unveiled in China.
- Both the phones come with the MediaTek Dimensity 820 chipset.
- The Redmi 10X 4G is just a renamed Redmi Note 9 from Europe.
The Redmi 10X had been long in the rumour belt, sparking off several possibilities of what this new smartphone range will bring to the table. After the launch, it is clear that the Redmi 10X is a bridge between what Redmi assumes is premium and the company's intentions to make affordable phones. For specifications nerds who also care for value, the Redmi 10X series seems to be the ultimate choice.
There are three models in the Redmi 10X series. There's a 4G variant that is essentially a rebadged Redmi Note 9. The 5G variants, however, are completely new phones. The 5G duo has different cameras, more modern chipset, big AMOLED screens and more. What's even better is that despite the Redmi 10X's flagship ambitions, the phones start from as low as approximately Rs 17,000.
Chances are that the Redmi 10X series may make it to the Indian shores later although Redmi is yet to confirm anything officially. If you are interested, here's everything you need to know about the Redmi 10X 5G and Redmi 10X Pro 5G.
