Official Redmi Note 10 series page teases a Snapdragon SoC, IP52 certification, others for Xiaomi's upcoming mid-range champion
Yesterday, Xiaomi confirmed that it would launch the Redmi Note 10 series in India on March 4, not March 10 as some expected. The company has now put up an official teaser page on its website, in an attempt to build hype by showing off some of the major selling points of the device.
For one, the Redmi Note 10 series will feature a Snapdragon chipset. That goes without saying, as Xiaomi has always used Qualcomm's SoCs on its products. We wouldn't take that to imply all the phones in the lineup will be equipped with Snapdragon hardware, though, as there's a chance we see a MediaTek chipset in one or more devices after the successes of the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Redmi Note 9.
The Redmi Note 10 series is touted to offer a new design, likely in the form of a distinct camera module design. The renders of the phone's front show a centered hole punch, however. The phone is expected to offer faster charging, too, so something faster than the 33 W charging on the last-gen Redmi Note phones can be expected.
Better haptics is also highlighted, with Xiaomi's now-deleted poll on Twitter heavily pointing towards an LCD with a 90 Hz or 120 Hz refresh rate, rather than an AMOLED as some have claimed. Lastly, the Redmi Note 10 series will offer an official IP rating for the first time. It's just IP52 but it's better than nothing.
