- Xiaomi launched the Japanese version of Redmi Note 10 in Japan.
- This phone is essentially Redmi Note 10 5G, with several major changes.
- It uses Snapdragon 480 SoC and IP68 design.
Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand released a large number of Redmi Note 10 series phones in 2021, namely Redmi Note 10, Note 10S, Note 10 5G, Note 10 Pro (known as Note 10 Pro Max in India), Note 10 Pro for China And India Note 10 Pro.
The first big difference is the Snapdragon 480 5G chipset, which replaces the cheap Dimensity 700 5G SoC in the standard 5G model. The CPU layout of these two chipsets is very similar (2x Cortex-A76 and 6x Cortex-A55), and the Qualcomm chip uses the Adreno 619 GPU instead of the Mali-G57 MC2 graphics card of the MediaTek chip.
Another major difference is that the Japanese version of Redmi Note 10 has received an IP68 waterproof and dustproof design. We have seen the splash-proof feature on budget Xiaomi phones before, but this is the first time we have seen the full IP68 rating here. Finally, compared with the 5,000mAh battery pack of the Redmi Note 10 5G, this phone has a battery capacity of 4,800mAh.
These two phones look very similar in other respects. They are equipped with a 6.5-inch 90Hz LCD panel (FHD+), 18W wired charging, 48MP+2MP+2MP rear camera system, 8MP camera in the centrally-mounted perforated cutout, and infrared transmitter. , 3.5 mm port and side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
There is no news on pricing yet, but Japanese consumers can expect 4GB/64GB models when they are released. The launch price of the standard Redmi Note 10 5G is US$199, so we put the Redmi Note 10 Japanese version in a similar price range.
