The Redmi Note 10 hype has finally materialized after tons of leaks and speculations. The Redmi Note 10 lineup consists of 3 models — Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 Pro and the big boy Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. Let’s take an overview of the models.
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and Note 10 Pro
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and Redmi Note 10 Pro sport a 6.67-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of 1200 nits. The display panel also supports a 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut and has an HDR-10 certification. Moreover, there’s a tiny punch hole cutout at the top housing a 16MP sensor with the “tiniest” cutout, 2.96mm in diameter, for selfies.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro brothers are powered by 8nm Snapdragon 732G SoC coupled with up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM RAM and up to 128GB of UFS 2.2 internal storage. On the GPU front, Adreno 618 does work. Both of them run MIUI 12 on top of Android 11 out of the box.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max differ in the rear camera front. The cheaper Note 10 Pro comes with a 64MP primary sensor alongside an 8MP ultra-wide camera (118-degree FOV) and a 2MP depth sensor. The Redmi Note 10 Pro brothers also feature a 5MP Super-Macro camera. The more expensive Note 10 Pro Max ditches the 64MP sensor for a 108MP sensor.
