Redmi 10X: a new leak suggests this phone is not a renamed Note 9 after all
It has been said that Honor has had to re-name its 9X successor due to Redmi's plans to release a phone of an identical name. This 10X has emerged in the form of leaks that paint it as a re-branded Note 9. This phone launched with the new MediaTek Helio G85 processor and 6GB of RAM - which the 10X is now also said to rock. However, a new rumor says otherwise.
It comes in the form of a Google Play Console listing for an upcoming phone code-named merlin - or, alternatively, the Redmi 10X 4G. This phone is allegedly now documented on the Mountain View giant's developer resource as a device that runs on the Helio G70, not the G85.
Similarly, this new apparent sign of the 10X states it has 4GB of RAM. Therefore, it and the Note 9 may not be the same phone after all. Then again, the earlier leak on this subject also indicated that the re-named phone in question was destined for the Chinese market, whereas the new appearance on the Play Console points to a more international launch. Therefore, Redmi may have multiple discrete versions of the 10X intended for different regions in the works.
