Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand today unveiled its latest Note series phones at a virtual event in India. The new Redmi Note 10 series are significant upgrades over their predecessors in numerous areas and come with an “all-new” design.
The Redmi Note 10 sports a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a hole-punch cutout for the 13MP selfie camera. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 678 processor, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Around the back of the Redmi Note 10 is a quad-camera setup featuring a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor. The phone also packs a large 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging, dual stereo speakers, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The phone will be offered in two variants in India. While the 64GB variant is priced at ₹11,999 ($165), the 128GB variant will cost ₹13,999 ($193).
Redmi Note 10 Pro, on the other hand, has a larger 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has a Snapdragon 732G chipset under the hood, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The quad-camera setup on the back of the phone includes a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP telemacro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. It also packs a 5,020mAh battery and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is the most impressive of the three new Redmi Note 10 series phones. While it is similar to the Redmi Note 10 Pro in most areas, it comes equipped with a much more impressive 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HM2 main sensor. Until now, Xiaomi’s most affordable phone with a 108MP camera was the Mi 10i, which is one of the best cheap Android phones on sale in India right now.
