Base variants of Redmi Note 10 Pro, Redmi Note 10 Pro Max are no more available

Xiaomi, which sells affordable Android smartphones under the Redmi lineup, may have discontinued the base variants of Redmi Note 10 Pro, Redmi Note 10 Pro Max smartphones.

Both Redmi Note 10 Pro, Redmi Note 10 Pro Max along with the vanilla Redmi Note 10 were launched a few months back and came in multiple variants i.e., 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, 6GM RAM and 128GB internal storage and the top-end variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

Now the base variants of both the devices have been delisted from Xiaomi’s official store and are also not available to purchase on Amazon India as well. We’ve reached out to Xiaomi for clarification and once we get a response, we will update this story.

To recall, the comparatively cheaper base variant of the Redmi Note 10 Pro was made available for purchase later than the other variants, which means that the base variant had a rather short life if it was discontinued.

And while we try to solve this puzzle, Xiaomi has started teasing the launch of yet another budget smartphone lineup – the Redmi 10 series. In terms of pricing and specifications, the Redmi Note 10 series would supersede the Redmi 10 series, hence the company might be looking to prepare a launchpad for the upcoming phone lineup.
