Xiaomi has launched another confusing entry in its Redmi Note smartphone range. For example, the company already sells three Redmi Note 9 Pros in various markets, codenamed curtana, gauguin and joyeuse. Now, the company has unveiled a new Redmi Note 10 Pro, having launched the inaugural one in March.

However, the new Redmi Note 10 Pro is nothing like the previous one. This time, Xiaomi has elected to use a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 SoC and a 6.6-inch IPS panel, rather than the Snapdragon 732G and 6.67-inch AMOLED one that it used in the first Redmi Note 10 Pro. Additionally, the newer model has fewer cameras, a lower megapixel primary camera and a nominally smaller battery capacity.

While the new model may sound worse than the first Redmi Note 10 Pro, it has a few interesting elements within its 193 g chassis. On the one hand, Xiaomi has protected its IPS panel with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, the same glass type that Samsung uses on its flagship smartphones. The 6.6-inch display can operate between 24 Hz and 120 Hz too, potentially reducing power consumption in some instances.

Moreover, the new model can recharge its 5,000 mAh battery at up to 67 W, more than double what the original Redmi Note 10 Pro can. The SoC change also brings with it Bluetooth 5.2, rather than the Bluetooth 5.1 that the first Redmi Note 10 Pro offers.

It is unclear if Xiaomi plans to release this new Redmi Note 10 Pro globally. If it does, then we would expect the company to market it under a different name. The new Redmi Note 10 Pro will start at CNY 1,499 (~US$234) when it goes on sale on June 1.
