The Redmi 10 has been officially launched in Europe
Some time ago, Xiaomi made the low-cost Redmi 10 available globally. A slightly modified version with a larger battery was launched in India as the Redmi 10 Prime. Now, Xiaomi enthusiasts in Europe will be pleased to know that the Redmi 10 is official in the region. Its prices are more or less on par with the global variants, which was foretold by an earlier leak.
The European Redmi 10 model is identical to the one unveiled globally. It is a bit of a relief, given Xiaomi's penchant for launching the same product with different names across different regions. The Redmi 10 also happens to be one of the world's first smartphones to run MediaTek's new Helio G88 SoC. The phone's 5,000mAh battery supports 18W fast charging.
Other Redmi 10 specifications include a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel clocked at 90Hz. Redmi claims that the screen can dynamically adjust the refresh rate based on the content displayed. For example, the screen will operate at 90Hz while gaming and lower it to 45Hz when you're reading a book. A hole-punch selfie camera (8MP) sits at the top of the screen.
While adaptive sync is undoubtedly one of the Redmi 10's best features, its cameras set it apart from other alternatives in the price range. It is one of the few devices in the segment to use a 50MP primary camera sensor, which is assisted by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. Other Redmi 10 features include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication, a micro SD card slot, Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC.
The entry-level version (4GB RAM, 64GB storage) retails for EUR 179.90. Upgrading the storage to 128GB will set you back by EUR 199.90. It will be available for purchase starting October 1 in three colour variants: Matte Carbon Grey, Pebble White and Sea Blue. Interestingly enough, the 6GB RAM variant isn't available, but it could be later.
