Redmi 10 India launch details
The official Redmi India account on social media announced the launch date of the Redmi 10 in the country. Xiaomi also sent a media invite for the launch.
Additionally, Xiaomi has created a dedicated microsite to tease the launch of the Redmi 10 in the country. The microsite suggests that the India variant of the Redmi 10 could come with a distinct list of specifications over what were available with its global model last year. The new phone also appears to be different from the Redmi 10 2022 that came last month with a few differences over the original model.
Redmi 10 price in India (expected)
Redmi 10 price in India is expected to be on the same lines as the Redmi 9 that debuted in the country in August 2020 starting at Rs. 8,999. The older model now has a slightly higher current price of Rs. 9,499 for 4GB + 64GB configuration.
The Redmi 10 is also expected to be more affordable than the Redmi 10 Prime that was launched in September with a starting price of Rs. 12,499.
Redmi 10 specifications (expected)
As per the microsite, the Redmi 10 in India will feature a waterdrop-style display notch. This is unlike the global Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 2022 that both have a hole-punch display design. The new smartphone is also teased to have a 6nm Snapdragon SoC — different from the global models that both have the MediaTek Helio G88 chip.
Redmi 10 in India is also teased to have a dual rear camera setup, with a 50-megapixel primary sensor. In comparison, Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 2022 in global markets were launched with a quad rear camera setup, though both phones also carried a 50-megapixel as the primary sensor.
Further, the finish of the India variant of the Redmi 10 also seems different from what was introduced in the global markets. The microsite shows that the phone has a smudge-free finish with a textured design.
Other teasers available on the microsite show that the Redmi 10 in India will come with an “ultra-fast” storage, “massive” battery, and “fast charging” support. The phone is also teased to have a “grand” display.
The India variant of the Redmi 10 also appears to have a fingerprint sensor at the back. In contrast, the original Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 2022 offer a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
