Xiaomi has released the Redmi 10 2022, a refresh of the Redmi 10 that it launched in August 2021. Sold in China as the Redmi Note 11 4G, the Redmi 10 2022 has a 6.5-inch display, a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 5,000 mAh battery, among other features. For some reason, the Redmi 10 2022 has worse memory options than the Redmi 10 and lacks its triple card slot.

Xiaomi has announced the Redmi 10 2022, which leaked in December. As expected, the Redmi 10 2022 is the global version of the Redmi Note 11 4G that Xiaomi sells in China. However, nothing separates the Redmi 10 2022 from its predecessor, the Redmi 10. Confusingly, the Redmi 10 is only six months old.

Hence, the Redmi 10 2022 has a MediaTek Helio G88 SoC, a 5,000 mAh battery and a 6.5-inch IPS display. According to Xiaomi, the latter can vary its refresh rate between 45 Hz, 60 Hz and 90 Hz; it also offers a 1080p native resolution, 405 PPI pixel density and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Additionally, the Redmi 10 2022 has a 50 MP primary camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide and dual 2 MP cameras for capturing depth and macro information.

An 8 MP front-facing camera is on board too, as is a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Separately, the Redmi 10 2022 ships with MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11, matching its predecessor. For some reason, Xiaomi has removed the Dual SIM and dedicated microSD card slot for this year's model. In its place is a SIM card slot and a hybrid slot that supports nano SIMs and microSD cards.

Xiaomi states that the Redmi 10 2022 will be available with 4 GB of LPDRR4X RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of eMMC flash storage. In comparison, the company sold the original Redmi 10 with a 6 GB of RAM option. Incidentally, the Redmi 10 2022 is available in the same colours as its predecessor, Carbon Gray, Pebble White and Sea White. As a result, it could prove impossible to tell the Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 2022 apart by looking at them. Xiaomi has not announced how much the Redmi 10 2022 costs, but the outgoing model retails for under €200.
