Redmi Note 10 Pro seems to shock with 120Hz display, low price

The price of the Redmi Note 10 Pro seems to be far lower than its features might imply. Before you drop down too low, note that the entire Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 series is intended for India and greater Europe, not necessarily anywhere near the USA. If you live in the USA and are a big fan of Redmi devices, by all means, read on – but don’t expect to be able to pick these machines up through any in-person storefront.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro has a 6.67-inch AMOLED display. This display has 120Hz image refresh rate with HDR10 and 450nits (typical brightness) and a max brightness of 1200nits – that’s bright! This display has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels (that’s around 395 pixels per inch). This display is covered with a pane of Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro works with dual-SIM tech and IP53 protection against dust and “splash” (water). Under the hood is MIUI 12 based on Android 11 for software. This phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon SM7150 chipset with an Adreno 618 GPU.

This phone has a dedicated microSDXC card slot and three iterations (RAM, internal storage). Those versions include 6GB/64GB, 6/128, and 8/128. Up front this machine has a 16-megapixel camera with f/2.5 aperture, 1.0um pixel size, and a 1/3.06″ sensor.

Around the back there’s a set of four cameras. The main sensor on this machine is 108MP with f/1.9 aperture and a 26mm (wide) lens. There’s also an ultrawide (118 degree) lens on an 8MP camera, a 5MP camera for macro, and a 2MP camera for depth sensing. This device can capture 30/60fps video at 1080p or 30fps video at 4K.

There’ll also be a Redmi Note 10S with a 6.42-inch display and slightly less impressive set of cameras. Both the “S” and the Pro work with GSM, HSPA, and LTE. The standard Redmi Note 10 works with GSM and HSPA, but no LTE. This device has effectively the same display as the S, but an ever-so-slightly less powerful camera on its back and a different processor inside.

The release dates for the entire Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 series is “soon” with an expected range inside March of 2021. If you’re looking for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S, you might be waiting a bit longer – that’s likely headed for an April release. You’ll be paying around Rs. 15,999 for the 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage size Redmi Note 10 Pro. Converted directly to USD, that’s approximately $220.

Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro flaunts Snapdragon 888 and a shocking price tag

Although it is Qualcomm’s best bet for 2021, very few phones so far carry its Snapdragon 888 chipset. Those that do also have rather high price tags, including the Xiaomi Mi 11 to some extent. The Chinese smartphone superstar, however, isn’t done with the Snapdragon 888 just yet and, at least for certain markets, it may have an even better offer in the guise of the Redmi K40 Pro and Redmi K40 Pro+.

The base Redmi K40 is actually the first of the brand’s K-series to use a Snapdragon 8-series processor. That said, Redmi opted for the Snapdragon 870 here instead, reserving the Snapdragon 888 for the “Pro” models. Both, of course, are 5G-capable and few users might see much difference between the two in real-world use.

The Redmi K40, Redmi K40 Pro, and Redmi K40 Pro+ do share many things in common, particularly the 6.67-inch Samsung E4 AMOLED display with a 2400×1080 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. This screen has a punch-hole cutout in the middle, hiding a single 20MP camera common to all three. The siblings also have the same 4,520 mAh battery that supports 33W wired fast charging and no wireless charging capabilities at all.

They naturally differ in some aspects, particularly the cameras. While they share the same 8MP ultra-wide and 5MP telemacro cameras, only the Redmi K40 Pro+ boasts of having a 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HM2. The Redmi K40 Pro gets a 64MP Sony IMX686 while the Redmi K40 settles for a 48MP Sony IMX582.

As with many Redmi phones, price is where it’s at. The Redmi K40 Pro+, with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, goes for 3,699 RMB ($570), lower than an equivalent Xiaomi Mi 11 at 4,699 RMB ($727). Of course, the Xiaomi Mi 11 has more features and some better hardware but the Redmi K40 Pro+ definitely covers the basics already. Xiaomi also announced the Redmi AirDots 3 for 199 RMB ($31) that will be launching on March 4 in China along with the Redmi K40 series.
