Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro Unveiled in Pakistan; AMOLED Screens & Performance-focused Chips

Faisal Rasool

At their long-anticipated Redmi Note 10 launch event, Xiaomi introduced two new Redmi Note phones: the Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro. This lineup marks a new standard for what budget phones can do. We’re gonna take a look at it.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10

The Note 10 is the first Xiaomi phone to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 mobile platform (this follow-up to the Snapdragon 675 came out in December last year.) The latest Android11/MIUI 12 powers the phone.

It’s backed up by a 5000 mAh battery that fast charges over 33W. The charging brick in the box is advertised to take your Redmi Note 10 from 0 to 67 percent in only half an hour.

Impressive still is the phone’s 6.43” screen. We’re looking at a SuperAMOLED panel that peaks at an eye-searing 1100 nits of brightness and a full HD resolution. There’s a hole-punch in its center and a slim, almost even bezel around it.

Xiaomi has toughened it with Gorilla Glass 3 and secured an IP53 rating against dust and splash resistance for the phone — IP ratings of any kind are unheard of in this class. The speakers are Hi-Res certified for an immersive stereo experience. Xiaomi also promises improved haptic feedback with their new vibration motor.

The phone’s design is based on Xiaomi’s latest “Evol” design language. We have chrome accents, beveled edges, and a side-facing fingerprint scanner. Xiaomi has trimmed off the build; made it 0.6mm thinner and 20g lighter. It also includes the signature IR Blaster and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 has 4GB of memory and 128GB of storage, and it starts from Rs. 31,999. The phone is available in Aqua Green, Shadow Black, and Frost White.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro

Redmi Note 10 Pro was introduced alongside the standard Note 10, but it’ll hit store shelves in April. It’s the top-end edition of this lineup, featuring not just a plain SuperAMOLED screen but a high 120Hz refresh rate. 

The Xiaomi's Note 10 Pro display is a 1080P 6.67” panel, featuring Gorilla Glass 5, 1200 nits of brightness, and support for HDR10. It has the 8nm Snapdragon 732G at its heart, hooked up to a 5020 mAh battery that also fast charges over 33W.

Its quad-camera uses a high-resolution 108MP sensor, an 8MP 118˚ ultra-wide lens, a 5MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth lens. The selfie camera is 16MP. Save for the 108MP camera (which is replaced with a 48MP sensor), the standard Redmi Note 10 has the same camera array.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro will be available in 8GB/128GB and 6GB/128GB variants, starting Rs. 47,999 and Rs. 43,999, respectively. Speaking of similar camera systems, the Redmi Note 10 Pro also shares other features with the Note 10: dual stereo speakers, IP rating, a lightweight footprint, and the side-facing thumbprint reader. But the Pro edition shell is crafted from glass, rounded off with a premium dual-tone frosted matte finish. You can pick from Vintage Bronze, Glacial Blue, and Dark Night colors.
