Xiaomi is planning a new Redmi-branded phone for its home market. A new leak has claimed that the Redmi Note 10 is in preparation and will bring some serious upgrades over its Redmi Note 9 prequel. generation in the domestic market. Redmi’s Note series is all about attractive low-priced hardware, which is why the Redmi Note 10 is rumored to be equipped with a 108-megapixel camera.
According to credible whistleblower Digital Chat Station, Redmi Note 10 will be launched in China by the end of October. There are no concrete launch dates yet. Redmi will likely make an official announcement sometime before launch. The tipster also hinted that the Redmi Note 10 could arrive in India by November, which sounds logical because Xiaomi traditionally launches a new Note series device at festivals in India. His Redmi Note 10 will likely play in Diwali season.
It is becoming too common for Chinese smartphone brands to rename their phones for different markets. Xiaomi is accused of doing this, especially with the Poco brand. The Redmi Note 10 will also be no different. The tipster said it will be a rebadged version of the Mi 10T Lite which debuted in Europe a while ago. While the Redmi Note 10 may end up getting the same hardware as that of the Mi 10T Lite, the Redmi Note 10 Pro will swap the 108-megapixel camera for the 64-megapixel camera on the back.
Since the 108 megapixel camera will be expensive, Redmi is planning to reduce the number of other cameras. Redmi is ready to include a single macro camera alongside, abandoning all other standards: ultra-wide angle, portrait and black and white sensors. It’s pretty much an interesting move for Xiaomi because it’s one of the companies that popularized multi-camera setups on phones. Going back to just giving two may or may not get along 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 whistleblower, there will be a Snapdragon 720G chipset on the device which will bring good performance aside from the 5G features that don’t seem feasible for India at the moment. The Redmi Note 10 may also have a higher refresh rate on the display, but there is a possibility that the company may give you options for choosing the type of display. Just like Realme, Redmi could give you a 90Hz LCD on the Note 10 and an AMOLED display on the Note 10 Pro. Nothing is confirmed though.
We’ll have to see what Redmi has in store for us and what it plans to bring with its Note series.
