Xiaomi has just lifted the veil on the Redmi Note 10, Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max at a conference in India. This new generation of mid-range smartphones stands out thanks to 120 Hz AMOLED screens, Qualcomm chips, impressive batteries with 33W fast charging and cameras made up of several sensors. We take stock of everything you need to know.
As expected, Xiaomi presented the Redmi Note 10 as part of a presentation organized for the Indian market. Like last year, the manufacturer declines the range in three models : a more affordable standard Redmi Note 10, a slightly more upscale Redmi Note 10 Pro, and a very premium Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.
On the design side, the range does not revolutionize the genre. On the three smartphones, there is a screen found surrounded by thin borders. As always, the lower border (the famous chin) is thicker. On the back, Xiaomi has all the sensors in a rounded block. Unsurprisingly, the three smartphones have very different data sheets. More affordable, the standard model makes the deadlock on several features built into the Redmi Note 10 Pro and Pro Max. These two variants benefit in particular from more powerful SoCs and more sophisticated photo sensors.
What data sheet for the Redmi Note 10?
The Redmi Note 10 is built around a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen confined to 60 Hz. The touch screen is protected by a protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. For their part, the Note 10 Pro and Pro Max are covered a 6.67-inch AMOLED display that offers 120Hz refresh rate. Xiaomi relies on Gorilla Glass 5 to protect the panel from scratches and bumps.
The standard version is powered by the Snapdragon 678 coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. More upscale, the Redmi Note 10 Pro and Pro Max are powered by a Snapdragon 732G chipset supported by 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. This processor offers higher performance than the Snapdragon 678 of the standard edition.
The autonomy of the Redmi Note 10 is entrusted to a 5000 mAh battery. For their part, the Redmi Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max are powered by a 5020 mAh battery. All models in the range are compatible with the 33W fast charging.
Unsurprisingly, Xiaomi did not skimp on the photography part. All variants feature a camera consisting of 4 lenses. The standard Redmi Note 10 is equipped with a 48-megapixel (f / 1.79) main lens, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor (f / 2.2), a 2-megapixel macro module (f / 2.4) and a final 2 megapixel depth sensor (f / 2.4). In the hole in the screen, there is a photo sensor for selfies of 13 megapixels (f / 2.45).
For its part, the Redmi Note 10 Pro has a quadruple photo sensor equipped with a main lens of 64 megapixels (f / 1.79), an ultra-wide sensor of 8 megapixels (f / 2.2), a macro sensor of 5 megapixels (f / 2.4) and a module to capture the depth of 2 megapixels (f / 2.4). Finally, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max stands out from its little brothers thanks to its 108 megapixel main lens (f / 1.9). Besides this change, it is equipped with the same set up as the Note 10 Pro. Both Pro versions have a 16MP front camera (f / 2.45).
Note that all variations are compatible with 5G. On the software side, the three smartphones run on MIUI 12, an Android interface based on Android 11. In the coming months, Xiaomi will deploy the MIUI 12.5 update on the Redmi Note 10.
