- Higher-end Redmi Note 10 Pro comes with 108MP quad-cam, 120Hz display
- The Redmi Note 10 arrives earlier on March 8, prices from US$196
NOT long after the arrival of the Mi 11, Xiaomi has announced the latest line-up of its mid-range Redmi smartphone series – the Redmi Note 10 Pro and the Redmi Note 10. The latter device will be available for purchase in Malaysia from March 8 onwards, while the Pro version from March 15 onwards.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro is, of course, the higher-end version of the new series. It comes with a 6.67-inch AMOLED DotDisplay that features 120Hz refresh rate, which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, Xiaomi said in a statement.
The device also features a quad-camera setup led by a 108MP main shooter, followed by an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, 5MP tele-macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The main sensor touts a 9-in-1 'binning' technology and dual native ISO combine, which the company said helps capture finer details and provide a higher dynamic range.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro will offer both pro and tele-macro time-lapse video shooting. Other additional features in Redmi Note include photo clones, video clones, dual video and long exposure modes for extra fun photo or video sharing on your favorite social media apps, the company said.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro is a 4G device but still powerful nonetheless. It sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G chipset, an optimised-for-gaming chipset. The device is powered by a 5,020mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging.
The base Redmi Note 10, on the other hand, comes with a smaller 6.43-inch AMOLED DotDisplay, which doesn’t support 120Hz refresh rate. It does, however, have the 33W fast charging and dual speakers that the Pro version has.
This Note 10 also sports a quad-camera setup, albeit with a 48MP main shooter coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. The main shooter does have time-lapse capabilities.
The Note 10 runs on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 678, a chipset which is designed to bring better photography and connectivity capabilities in the mid-range market without sacrificing battery endurance, Xiaomi claimed. The device has a 5,000mAh battery.
The Redmi Note 10, available in Malaysia from March 8 in a 6GB+128GB setup, comes in three colours: Onyx Gray, Pebble White and Lake Garden. It prices at US$196 (RM799).

Both devices will be available at official Xiaomi stores on Lazada and in-store at authorised Mi stores, and other official retailers.
