One of the most popular mid-range series across the globe is no other than Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi Note series. The 9th generation of Redmi Note series just launched across the globe. But Xiaomi never launched the Redmi Note 9 lineup in China, and they are not even going to launch it. The Redmi Note 9 series was kind of a filler, and launching it in China might not have been a great idea considering they have a competitor ready. Honor X10 series is going to be a killer mid-range with 5G support. The Honor X10 won’t support GMS services, but that isn’t a deal-breaker for the Chinese market, and hence Xiaomi is launching Redmi Note 10 with 5G and updated specifications to compete with the Honor X10 series.
Today, a phone with model number M2004J7AC is certified through TENAA. According to Xiaomishika, a leakster the device will be the Redmi Note 10. Thanks to the TENAA listing, we have a specifications overview as well as an idea of how the device will look like.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Specifications
The Redmi Note 10 features 6.57 inches OLED display with a resolution of FHD+ 1080 x 2400. This is the first time a Redmi Note phone will be using an OLED display, that’s amazing! The device will be sporting an under-display fingerprint scanner as well. The phone will be powered by a Dimensity 800-series chipset. The Dimensity 800 is a mid-range 5G chipset from MediaTek.
Talking about the camera segment, the device will be supporting a 48-megapixel triple rear camera setup. For less cost, the macro sensor is has gone now.
