Redmi 10A was launched in India on Wednesday as the latest affordable model by Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi. The new Redmi phone is the successor to the Redmi 9A, which debuted in the country in 2020. It shares some similarities with its predecessor, including the same MediaTek Helio G25 SoC as well as a single 13-megapixel rear camera. The Redmi 10A, however, does have some upgrades.

The Redmi 10A competes against the likes of the Tecno Pova Neo, Realme C11 (2021), and Samsung Galaxy M02.
