Redmi Note 10 & Redmi Note 10 Pro already in the starting blocks?

Hey, guys! Just a heads up: The linked offer is already a bit older and the price of the gadget might have changed or it might not be available anymore.

After the Xiaomi smartphone is before the next Xiaomi smartphone. Although the Redmi Note 9 & Note 9 Pro were not introduced until the end of April, in China the 9 series is probably skipped with the Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro. Both are bursting with new features and probably raise the Redmi Note series to a new level.

Redmi Note 9 Design with Waterdrop-Notch?

Xiaomi still keeps itself relatively under wraps, but the devices have already been sighted and certified by the certification authority TENAA. The design is clearly based on the current Redmi Note 9 generation. There is a square camera module on the back, which has been centrally positioned. In contrast to the Redmi Note 9S it seems to be one module and not “split”. Also the blue Colorway looks familiar to us.

However, it can be seen that this is not a quad camera, but a triple camera, which is rather unusual at the moment. It is also noticeable that the power button on the right side is marked red, similar to the Redmi K30 Pro. On the front side it is also recognizable that despite the low resolution, one works with a Waterdrop-Notch instead of a Punch-Hole camera.

With MediaTek Dimensity Processor

But what makes the new Redmi Note device so interesting is the new equipment. The screen shrinks to a 6.57″ diagonal and it is probably an AMOLED display with 2400 x 1080p! That would be a novelty for the Redmi Note series. Thus, the fingerprint sensor also seems to move into the display.

Also, Xiaomi probably uses the new MediaTek Dimensity processor here. For the Redmi Note 10, the MediaTek Dimensity 800 should be used, for the Redmi Note 10 Pro it could be the Dimensity 820 CPU. The processor was only introduced on May 18th. With a clock frequency of 2.6 GHz, it should be very powerful. This is probably combined with 4, 6 or 8 GB RAM and at least 64 GB mass storage. The special feature of this CPU is the 5G support, also a novelty for the Redmi Note series.

With a capacity of 4,420 mAh, the battery turns out to be sufficiently large, the two versions seem to differ in terms of charging. The Redmi Note 10 seems to charge with 22.5W and the Redmi Note 10 Pro seems to be able to be charged quickly with 33W. A 48 megapixel camera is probably used on the back and you should get 16 megapixels on the front.


This is still a collection of leaks and rumors, but in our opinion they are quite plausible overall, even if triple camera and Waterdrop-Notch make me a bit suspicious. First, I wanted to take Redmi Note 10 as a good example for our criticism of Xiaomi’s release strategy. But it’s interesting that Xiaomi didn’t even introduce the Redmi Note 9 series in China. Redmi boss Lu Weibing also doesn’t plan to release it there, since they only want to produce 5G smartphones in the future.

The Redmi Note 9 comes on the market in China as Redmi 10X to stand up to the Honor X10. So it seems that the 9 generation is being completely skipped in China, which actually wouldn’t be the first time for Xiaomi. So it seems that especially with the “tenth” generation they want to take the Redmi Note series to a new level, although the equipment almost reminds me of a second Redmi Pro. The Redmi Note 10 (Pro) is supposed to be introduced in June, but we don’t know yet if it will come to us in the same way.
