Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 Pro, and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max launched in India, 108 MP camera and 120 Hz Super AMOLED available from US$260 with the Note 10 Pro Max
The Xiaomi Redmi Note series has been a pretty successful outing for the company, especially since the Redmi Note 4 back in 2017. We've been hearing about the Redmi Note 10 series for quite some time and now, it is finally here. Xiaomi has launched three Redmi Note 10 variants in India — the Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 Pro, and the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max
Leading the pack is the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G paired with 6/8 GB RAM and up to 128 GB of internal storage that is expandable via a microSD card. The Note 10 Pro Max features a 6.67-inch FHD+ 120 Hz Super AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla 5 and with HDR10+ support and a peak brightness of 1,200 nits. By all accounts, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max's display is a major upgrade from the 60 Hz IPS LCD panel we've seen with the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max offers the same 108 MP ISOCELL HM2 primary camera sensor that we saw in the Mi 10i. While the main sensor receives an upgrade, the other three cameras are essentially the same as the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max including the 8 MP ultra-wide lens, a 5 MP tele-macro lens with 2x zoom, and a 2 MP depth sensor. Xiaomi has retained the same 5,020 mAh battery this time as well.
Completing the specs are an IR blaster, headphone jack, dual stereo speakers, and IP52 rating.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max will be available in India from March 18 in Dark Night, Glacial Blue, and Vintage Bronze colors starting from ₹18,999 (US$260) for the 6/64 GB variant and going up to ₹21,999 (US$300) for the 8/128 GB version.
Redmi Note 10 Pro
The Redmi Note 10 Pro is essentially the same phone as the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max above. The primary difference lies with respect to the camera setup. Unlike the 108 MP sensor in the Pro Max, the Redmi Note 10 Pro makes do with a 64 MP Samsung GW3 sensor. Rest of the specifications are identical to the Pro Max variant.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro starts from ₹15,999 (US$219) for the 6/64 GB version and goes up to ₹18,999 (US$260) for the 8/128 GB variant. The phone will be available from March 17 in India in the same color options as the Pro Max.
Redmi Note 10
The entry-level Redmi Note 10 offers a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display with just a 60 Hz refresh rate. Unlike its bigger cousins, the Redmi Note 10 opts for a Snapdragon 678 SoC paired with 4/6 GB RAM and 64/128 GB storage options.
The Redmi Note 10 features a quad-camera setup comprised of a 48 MP Sony IMX582 sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide, a 2 MP macro lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. The battery capacity is slightly lesser at 5,000 mAh.
The Redmi Note 10 will be available from March 16 in India with prices starting from ₹11,999 (US$164) for the 4/64 GB version and going up to ₹13,999 (US$191) for the 6/128 GB variant. The Redmi Note 10 will be available in Shadow Black, Frost White, and Aqua Green color options.
Needless to say, all these smartphones run Android 11 based on MIUI 12 out-of-the-box.
