Xiaomi has unveiled the Redmi Note 10 series for India and the global market. Phones are mostly similar with a few noticeable changes, so you’ll need to be careful when looking for information about them online.
And after doing your research and reading reviews, are you going to buy one? And which one? Assuming the reviews are positive, of course. Let’s do a quick recap of what we’re looking at.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro has the best display in the family, also the largest – a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with HDR10 support and a 120Hz refresh rate. It also has the best main camera with a 108MP sensor, as well as the best chipset, if you can call the Snapdragon 732G “better.”
The Redmi Note 10 Pro will be available Monday starting at $ 250 for a 6/64 GB phone. In India it’s called the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and apart from removing the NFC it’s the same phone. It will start at INR 19,000 for the same setup when it becomes available on March 18.
Before voting, you should read our Redmi Note 10 Pro review. It is based on the global model, but the conclusions are also valid for the Indian Redmi Note 10 Pro Max (keeping in mind the absence of NFC). You can also watch our video review.
India also gets a Redmi Note 10 Pro, but it’s a Pro Max with a 64MP camera (same 6.67 ”120Hz display, same S732G chipset). This model will be available from March 17 for 16,000 INR (6/64 GB). Again, be careful while reading online about a “Redmi Note 10 Pro” as the Global and Indian phones of this name have different cameras.
The Global Redmi Note 10 and 10S have smaller 6.43-inch AMOLED displays with a 60Hz refresh rate. The Note 10 is powered by a Snapdragon 678 chipset and has a 48MP main camera. Also launching on Monday, this phone will cost $ 180 for a 4/64 GB configuration.
Surprisingly, the Redmi Note 10 in India is actually the same phone. It will start at INR 12,000 when it becomes available on March 16.
The global Redmi Note 10S switches to a Helio G95 chipset. While that’s a bit of a downgrade, the camera gets a slight upgrade to a 64MP sensor. This is enough to position it as the top-end model and it will cost you $ 200 for a 6/64 GB model. This one has no equivalent in India.
Still with us? Good because there is also the Redmi Note 10 5G. It prioritizes next-gen connectivity over screen, camera, and even chipset performance – this is powered by the Dimensity 700. The screen upgrades to a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and the main camera has a 48 MP sensor.
Unlike its siblings, the 5G model does not have an 8MP ultra-wide camera. Additionally, while all phones have a battery of around 5000mAh, 4G models charge at 33W while 5G only charges at 18W.
The Redmi Note 10 5G will also start at $ 200 and will be available worldwide in April. It’s not coming to India.
Okay, we have to split this into two polls – one for the global market and one for India.
