Redmi Note 10 gets hyped before launch - Xiaomi says it already sold 200 million

The Redmi Note 10 has been in the news for a while now, and now Xiaomi is adding to the hype with an announcement on Twitter that the company has sold 200 million Redmi Note units internationally. 

The attempt is quite obvious even to the untrained eye. Xiaomi wants us all to know that the Redmi Note series is a big winner for the Chinese consumer electronics giant and possibly also a reminder to those who doubted the new device's ability to bring in the big bucks. 

Of course, a smaller question around this would be: What's the big deal about 200 million units when you are supposed to be launching three different gadgets as part of the series? Continuous leaks tell us that the Redmi Note 10 series could include the Redmi Note 10, the Redmi Note 10 Pro, and the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G. 

Though there is no official word yet, the smartphones are expected to come to India as well.

Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing officially teased the Redmi Note 10 on Weibo. But this was done in an indirect manner where no image of the Note 10 series was shared. Rather he asked what people would like to see in the Redmi Note 10 series. 

Redmi Note 10 series: Leaked details

The Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max made their global debut in India back in March of 2020. Later, the company also launched the Redmi Note 9 in India during July. However, this time around, it is most likely that the Redmi Note 10 series will make its debut outside of India, most likely China and then make its way to the Indian market. We expect multiple smartphones in the Redmi Note 10 series to launch in India, populating the Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 price band.

The leaked image reveals the design of the Redmi Note 10. The vanilla Note 10 has a circular camera bump at the rear in the centre with Redmi branding to the lower end of the device. To the front, it looks like the Redmi Note 10 would have a punch-hole cutout to the right of the the selfie camera. The volume rockers will be on the right side and just below the button. You also get the power key as well as a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The leaked image also shows a Grey colour option. 

Renders also suggest that the Redmi Note 10, Xiaomi will continue the IPS LCD panel though we expect at least one of the two Pro devices to come with an AMOLED panel or with a higher refresh rate. The Redmi Note 10 series, this time around is said to have a 120Hz refresh rate. 

This time, the Redmi Note series is likely to come with MediaTek’s Dimensity series chipsets. The Redmi Note 10 could be powered by Dimensity 720 SoC and the Redmi Note 10 and Note 10 Pro are likely to come with Dimensity 820 under the hood.

Further, the devices are expected to pack in up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard storage, which has been pretty standard these days for devices. However, we’d also like to see a variant with 256GB of internal storage, but without an external option of a microSD card.
