Following weeks of leaks and rumors surrounding its latest mainstream smartphones, Xiaomi‘s Redmi today unveiled the Redmi 10 series on the global stage. The reveal came on the heels of the Redmi Note 10 launch event in India, where the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, Redmi Note 10 Pro, and Redmi Note 10 broke cover bearing AMOLED screens and quad rear cameras.

(Update, April 3: The Redmi Note 10 Pro with 108-megapixel camera is now listed in the Philippines! Are you getting one?)

(Update, April 1: Xiaomi has announced the Redmi Note 10 Pro MFF Special Edition!)

(Update, March 13: We detail the aggressively priced Redmi Note 10’s hardware chops, including its gaming performance and benchmarks in Redmi Note 10: We test the first SD 678 phone in PH.)

(Update, March 12: And the Redmi Note 10 is official in the Philippines! Read Redmi Note 10 priced in PH, to be P500 cheaper for limited time.)

(Update, March 8: We have the launch date for the Philippine market!)

The international roster — the bunch that will launch in the Philippines as well — features a slightly different cast. We’re getting a Redmi Note 10 Pro, which is basically the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max for the Indian market; Redmi Note 10S; and 4G and 5G variants of the Redmi Note 10. The 4G version of the Note 10 is identical to India’s Note 10.

The Redmi Note 10S finds itself in a precarious spot between the Pro and base model, whereas the Redmi Note 10 5G should be an exciting prospect for budget-minded consumers looking for a 5G handset that won’t blow a hole in their budget. All four models ship with MIUI 12 layered on top of Android 11.

Redmi Note 10 Pro

The most premium model in the series, unfortunately, is lacking 5G connectivity, but it does carry a 108-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HM2 camera sensor with 9-in-1 pixel binning at the back and the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G chipset that makes the POCO X3 NFC a generally capable and smooth performer. That 108-megapixel sensor is the highest of any Redmi phone in the midrange to date.

The 6.67-inch AMOLED screen looks promising for the price, operates at 120Hz, and has a touch sampling of 240Hz, while the 5,020mAh battery should easily be enough to last a full day and supports 33-watt fast charging. Of the four phones revealed today, the Note 10 Pro is the one best suited for users who value image quality over just about anything else in a smartphone.

Specs

  • 6.67-inch Super AMOLED display, FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch-sampling rate
  • 8nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor
  • 6GB/8GB LPDDR4X RAM
  • 64GB/128GB UFS 2.2 storage
  • Quad 108-megapixel (main), 8-megapixel (ultra wide), 5-megapixel (telemacro), 2-megapixel (depth) rear cameras
  • 16-megapixel front camera
  • Fingerprint reader (side-mounted)
  • 5,020mAh battery with 33-watt USB-C charging
  • MIUI 12 based on Android 11
  • Colors: Onyx Gray, Glacier Blue, Gradient Bronze

Redmi Note 10S

The middle child of the series gets a MediaTek Helio G95 processor alongside a 64-megapixel primary camera and a 6.43-inch AMOLED panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio and 60Hz refresh. Given the internals and lack of a high-refresh panel, the 5,000mAh battery inside should be more than sufficient for a full day of medium to heavy use.

Specs

  • 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display, FHD+ resolution, 60Hz refresh rate
  • 12nm octa-core MediaTek Helio G95 processor
  • 6GB/8GB LPDDR4X RAM
  • 64GB/128GB UFS 2.2 storage
  • Quad 64-megapixel (main), 8-megapixel (ultra wide), 2-megapixel (macro), 2-megapixel (depth) rear cameras
  • 13-megapixel front camera
  • Fingerprint reader (side-mounted)
  • 5,000mAh battery with 33-watt USB-C charging
  • MIUI 12 based on Android 11
  • Colors: Onyx Gray, Pebble White, Ocean Blue

Redmi Note 10 5G

This wallet-friendly 5G variant is powered by a MediaTek Dimsensity 700 SoC, which integrates a 5G modem for better performance and efficiency. Other than that, it has a well-sized 90Hz LCD display, plus a fast-charging 5,000mAh battery pack and triple rear-facing cameras led by a 48-megapixel sensor.

Specs

  • 6.5-inch LCD display, FHD+ resolution, 90Hz refresh rate
  • 7nm octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor with 5G
  • 4GB/6GB LPDDR4X RAM
  • 64GB/128GB UFS 2.2 storage
  • Triple 48-megapixel (main/wide), 2-megapixel (macro), 2-megapixel (depth) rear cameras
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Fingerprint reader (side-mounted)
  • 5,000mAh battery with 18-watt USB-C charging
  • MIUI 12 based on Android 11
  • Colors: Chrome Silver, Graphite Gray, Nighttime Blue, Aurora Green

Redmi Note 10

The vanilla Note 10 is meant to be one of the cheapest AMOLED-equipped phones on the market, but also includes other nice features, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 silicon; a 5,000mAh battery with 33-watt fast charging; and a 48-megapixel primary camera accompanied by ultra-wide and macro lenses.

Last year’s Redmi Note 9 was an excellent purchase for under P10,000 ($206), so it would be interesting to see if the follow-up is a notable upgrade from one of 2020’s most popular Android smartphones.

Specs

  • 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display, FHD+ resolution, 60Hz refresh rate
  • 11nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 processor
  • 4GB/6GB LPDDR4X RAM
  • 64GB/128GB UFS 2.2 storage
  • Quad 48-megapixel (main), 8-megapixel (ultra wide), 2-megapixel (macro), 2-megapixel (depth) rear cameras
  • 13-megapixel front camera
  • Fingerprint reader (side-mounted)
  • 5,000mAh battery with 33-watt USB-C charging
  • MIUI 12 based on Android 11
  • Colors: Onyx Gray, Pebble White, Lake Green
