We are accustomed to seeing leakers leak the details of smartphones in advance, but companies usually don’t accidentally release their full version. This is exactly what Xiaomi has done with its upcoming budget competitor, Redmi 10.
Official Announcement Blog post It has since been deleted, but we managed to save the snapshot beforehand. According to the details disclosed, the budget phone is a major upgrade to Redmi 9.
It also presents a more exciting look, drawing on several aesthetic features of Xiaomi’s higher-quality mobile phones. It is available in three colors, carbon gray and pebble white matte options, and shiny sea blue options.
Let’s start with the screen to understand the key specifications. Redmi 10 is equipped with a 6.5-inch adaptive 90Hz display with a resolution of FHD+. The screen will automatically select the preferred refresh rate based on usage to save battery or improve performance. MediaTek Helio G88 is responsible for processing tasks, with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space. A 5,000mAh battery and 18W charging power power this cocktail. A 22.5W charger is included in the box.
As for the camera hardware, Redmi 10 brings the first 50MP main camera of the basic series. This seems to be a considerable upgrade from the 13MP shooter on Redmi 9, and it does struggle in low light. Three other shooting games also joined it, namely an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro shooting game and a 2MP depth sensor. There is also an 8MP punch-hole selfie shooter in front.
Other key features include dual speakers, 3.5 mm headphone jack, side-mounted fingerprint sensor and MIUI 12.5 out of the box.
Redmi 10 price and availability
The blog post did not disclose the pricing of this phone, but we don’t expect Xiaomi’s price to far exceed the European launch price of 159 pounds (approximately US$220) for Redmi 9. The company will also have a lot of competition on this stand.
As for the availability, the announcement post takes August 18th as the planned release date. It is not clear whether this is consistent with the planned release date of Xiaomi. Nevertheless, it is expected that more details will surface soon.
