The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 series is set to launch on March 4 in India where the company is expected to announce the successors to the Redmi Note 9 line-up from 2020. The Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max have been heavily rumoured and leaked in the past few weeks revealing its design, key specifications and features. We are looking at a massive overhaul with the Redmi Note 10 line-up as it has a new design with upgraded internals. Xiaomi is yet to confirm if we are getting three phones on March 4, but it looks more likely than ever. Furthermore, Xiaomi itself has been teasing the Redmi Note 10 series in the heads-up to the launch date which is scheduled for next week. Here we have compiled everything that we know about the Redmi Note 10 series so far.
Xiaomi has confirmed that the Redmi Note 10 series will launch on March 4 in India. The company has announced that it will be the global debut of the Redmi Note 10 series next week and the phones will be available in India first. Xiaomi is expected to announce three smartphones in the Redmi Note 10 line-up which could include the standard Redmi Note 10 followed by the Redmi Note 10 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.
Xiaomi will be live-streaming the Redmi Note 10 series launch across its social media channels. We have embedded the YouTube livestream link below for your convenience.
At the time of its launch, the Redmi Note 9 was priced starting at Rs 11,999 for the base variant while the Redmi Note 9 Pro started at Rs 12,999 followed by the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max at Rs 14,999.
We expect Xiaomi to price the Redmi Note 10 series in the same price bracket as the Redmi Note 9 series. However, given that the new line-up will have a new design and 108MP cameras, the price of the Pro series may go up by a few thousand rupees. As per the recent leaks, the Redmi Note 10 could be priced under Rs 14,000 in India.
We will know the exact price of the Redmi Note 10 series on March 4 when it launches officially.
The Redmi Note 10 series is slated to get a design refresh as confirmed by Xiaomi itself. They are calling it the new “Evol. Design” which as per the leaks is closer to the design of the Mi 11. The Redmi Note 10 series looks likely to feature a rectangular camera module on the back and has a glossy finish. Xiaomi India MD Manu Kumar Jain posted a picture of him holding the retail box of the Redmi Note 10 series on Twitter and retail boxes of the phone have also been leaked. Furthermore, Xiaomi UK YouTube channel posted a video revealing the key specifications of the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
The image of the phone on the retail box seems to be in line with the leaked images so far. In that, we can see the rectangular camera module on the back with the primary camera accented in chrome finish. The phones are expected to be lightweight and are confirmed to be IP52 rated, making them resistant to dust and splashes of water.
The Redmi Note 10 series is confirmed to feature AMOLED display across the line-up with the Note 10 Pro and Pro Max receiving upto 120Hz high-refresh-rate support. Manu Kumar Jain took to Twitter and confirmed that the Redmi Note 10 series will feature 120Hz refresh rate. It remains unclear whether the standard Redmi Note 10 will support a high refresh rate.
Moreover, the phones in the Redmi Note 10 series are expected to have a centre punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera upfront. There are chances that the standard Redmi Note 10 may feature a normal AMOLED screen as has been hinted through a leaked hands-on video where an always-on display option was spotted in the Settings menu.
The Redmi Note 10 is expected to feature a 6.43-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution and uses a Super AMOLED panel with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. The Redmi Note 10 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max could feature 6.67-inch Full HD+ display with a Super AMOLED panel that supports a 120Hz refresh rate.
Xiaomi has officially announced that the Redmi Note 10 series will be powered by Qualcomm’s mid-premium Snapdragon processors. While the company is yet to reveal the exact details about the processors powering the Redmi Note 10 series, it is expected that the Snapdragon 732G chip could make an appearance on the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
There are also rumours that the standard Redmi Note 10 could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 processor which was launched back in December 2020.
The phones in the Redmi Note 10 series are expected to run on Android 11 based MIUI 12 out-of-the-box. Previous leaks have indicated that the Redmi Note 10 will arrive in three colours: White, Green and Grey and in two configurations of 4GB/6GB RAM and 6GB storage.
Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 10 Pro is expected to be offered with 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options to choose from. It will also be available in three colourways including Blue, Grey and Bronze. As for the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, it is expected to be offered in black, bronze and blue colours with 6GB/8GB RAM and upto 128GB storage options.
Additionally, the Redmi Note 10 series is also said to have dual stereo speakers, an IR blaster, a 3.5mm jack and the power button doubles up as a fingerprint reader.
The Redmi Note 10 is expected to have a 4,800mAh battery while the Redmi Note 10 Pro series could be equipped with a slightly larger 5,050mAh battery. The phones in the Redmi Note 10 line-up are expected to support 33W fast charging out-of-the-box.
Xiaomi has confirmed that the Redmi Note 10 series will mark the debut of the 108MP camera in the line-up which follows the 64MP camera that debuted with the Redmi Note 8 Pro back in 2019. In all likelihood, the Redmi Note 10 Pro series will receive the 108MP primary camera while the standard Redmi Note 10 will have 48MP primary cameras as per the leaks.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max camera array is expected to be headlined by 108MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor.
