Xiaomi has launched the new Redmi 10 budget smartphone in India today. The smartphone expands last year’s Redmi 10 series and comes with a number of “blockbuster” features such as 50MP cameras, a Snapdragon chipset, a big display, and more. It is the rebranded version of Redmi 10C, which launched recently in the global market. Here’s a look at all the details.
Redmi 10: Specs and Features
As revealed before, the Redmi 10 comes with a design different from what we saw with the Redmi 10 Prime. It has a square-shaped camera hump at the back, which not only houses the camera housings and an LED flash, but also a fingerprint scanner. The design is similar to the Realme Narzo 50A and refreshing for all we see now is a side-placed fingerprint scanner on most devices. Redmi 10 comes in Midnight Black, Caribbean Green, and Pacific Blue color options.
The Redmi 10 sports a 6.71-inch HD+ IPS LCD display with a waterdrop notch, which feels obsolete for 2022. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 680 SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage.
The rear camera system features two sensors, including a 50MP AI primary camera and a 2MP depth sensor. This is similar to the recently introduced Redmi 10C. The front camera is rated at 5MP. The phone supports various camera features like the Night mode, Time-lapse, Tilt-shift, Movie Frame mode, slow-motion videos, and more.
Much like the Redmi 10 Prime, this device also comes with a big 6,000mAh battery and support for 18W fast charging. Taking a dig at Samsung’s recent decision to remove in-box chargers from its budget phones, Xiaomi confirms that it still includes one. It runs MIUI 13 out-of-the-box but is based on Android 11, which is disappointing.
Additionally, the smartphone features a 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port, Widevine L1 support, and more.
