Xiaomi is definitely pushing its Redmi brand hard, and it comes as no big surprise since these mid-range smartphones are selling like hotcakes and are probably Xiaomi's bread and butter. There is a total of four new phones in the Redmi Note 10 lineup, including the Redmi Note 10 Pro, Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10S, and the Redmi Note 10 5G.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro gets 108-megapixel camera, AMOLED screen, and Snapdragon 732G SoC
The Redmi Note 10 Pro is built around a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with 2400x1080 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and 240Hz touch response rate. The screen, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, supports HDR10 and gives out 450/1200 nits of brightness (typ/peak). The 20:9 ratio on a 6.67-inch size gives you 395ppi of pixel density and about 85 percent of screen-to-body ratio with pretty slim bezels.
Measuring 164x76.5x8.1mm and weighing in at 193g, makes the Redmi Note 10 Pro a big and hefty smartphone but Xiaomi squeezed a lot, giving it a hefty 5020mAh battery as well. The phone is IP53 certified which means it has some dust and splash protection.
The main rear camera is a quad system with the main Samsung ISOCELL HM2 108-megapixel sensor behind f/1.9 26mm lens with PDAF, as well as an 8-megapixel sensor behind an f/2.2 118-degree ultrawide lens. There is also a dedicated 5-megapixel sensor behind an f/2.4 lens for macro and a 2-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 lens as a depth sensor.
The front camera is placed in the center of a punch-hole screen and it is a 16-megapixel shooter with an f/2.5 wide lens.
The heart of the Redmi Note 10 Pro is Qualcomm's 8nm Snapdragon 732G SoC with two Kryo 470 Gold and six Kryo 470 Silver cores, as well as Adreno 618 GPU. It will be paired up with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal UFS 2.2 storage. There is also a dedicated microSDXC card slot.
The rest of the features include a side fingerprint sensor, as well as 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1, stereo speakers, 3.5mm jack, and USB Type-C 2.0 port.
The 5020mAh battery should give it a decent battery life and it supports fast 33W wired charging. Unfortunately, there is no support for wireless charging.
It will be available in Onyx Gray, Glacier Blue, Gradient Bronze color options.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro comes in Onyx Gray, Glacier Blue and Gradient Bronze color options. It will be available as of March 8th, priced at $279 for the 6GB/64GB version, $299 for 6GB/128GB, and $329 for the 8GB/128GB version.
Redmi Note 10 and 10S are smaller at 6.43-inch
The Redmi Note 10 is a seriously cut-down version, but while it uses a smaller 6.43-inch screen, it is still a 2400x1080 resolution Super AMOLED panel with 450/1100nits brightness. It is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
The Redmi Note 10 biggest hit is in the camera and SoC department, as Redmi equipped this one with 11nm Snapdragon 678 SoC, which is still an octa-core SoC but with two Kryo 460 Gold and six Kryo 460 Silver cores, as well as weaker Adreno 612 SoC. It will be available with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
The rear camera is still a quad sensor system but this time around you get a main 48-megapixel sensor behind an f/1.8 26mm wide lens with PDAF, an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 118˚ ultrawide lens, a 2-megapixel sensor for macro and a 2-megapixel sensor for depth. The front camera is a 13-megapixel sensor behind an f/2.5 wide lens.
The Redmi Note 10 got a 5000mAh battery with 33W fast wired charging as well as a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The Redmi Note 10 will be available in Onyx Gray, Pebble White, Lake Green color options. It will officially be available on March 8th at $199 for the 4GB/64GB version, $199 for the 4GB/128GB one, and $279 for the 8GB/128GB version.
The Redmi Note 10S is quite similar to the Redmi Note 10 as it has the same screen and same battery but gets a 64-megapixel main sensor on the rear, and uses the MediaTek Helio G95 with 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
The Redmi Note 10S also comes in Onyx Gray, Pebble White, and Ocean Blue color options and will be available in April at $229 for the 6GB/64GB, $249 for the 6GB/128GB version, and $279 for the 8GB/128GB version.
The Redmi Note 10 5G is a weird addition to the pack
The Redmi Note 10 5G is a big surprise as it is the most cut-down version with a 6.5-inch 1080p LCD screen with 90Hz refresh rate, and it also got a 7nm MediaTek Dimensity 700 with 5G.
The main rear camera is a triple sensor system with a 48MP main sensor and two 2-megapixel sensors for macro and depth. The front camera is cut down to 8-megapixel as well.
The Redmi Note 10 5G comes with a 5,000mAh battery but slower 18W charging.
The Redmi Note 10 5G also comes in April and will be available in Chrome Silver, Graphite Gray, Nighttime Blue, and Aurora Green color options. It is priced at $199 for the 4GB/64GB version and $229 for the 4GB/128GB one.
