Xiaomi returns to the Redmi Note 10T with a refreshed model
Xiaomi has decided to re-release the Redmi Note 10T 5G, which has made its debut in Japan. Equipped with a 6.5-inch IPS display, the new Redmi Note 10T 5G also offers a 2,400 x 1,080-pixel native resolution, a 90 Hz refresh rate and a centred-punch hole for an 8 MP front-facing camera. Also, Xiaomi has covered the Redmi Note 10T 5G's display in Gorilla Glass 3, which you can read about on Corning's website.
Separately, the handset relies on the Snapdragon 480, an 8 nm SoC that contains an ARM Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, as well as a 5G modem. According to Xiaomi's product page, it has complemented the Snapdragon 480 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage, along with a 5,000 mAh battery that supports up to 18 W fast charging. For reference, the new Redmi Note 10T 5G measures 163 x 76 x 9 mm and weighs 198 g.
In part, the Redmi Note 10T 5G weighs as much as it does because of its two rear-facing cameras. While the handset features a 50 MP primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture, its only other rear-facing camera is a 2 MP depth sensor (f/2.4). Furthermore, Xiaomi has pre-loaded MIUI 13 based on Android 11, not the newer Android 12. Currently, Xiaomi sells the new Redmi Note 10T 5G in Japan for JPY 38,400 (~US$267) in Azur Black, Nighttime Blue and Lake Blue. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether Xiaomi plans to sell the new Redmi Note 10T 5G outside Japan or under what name.
