Over the weeks, we saw multiple leaks about the Redmi Note 10 Ultra. The device was set to be unveiled at today’s launch event. However, we did not get to see it. Instead, Redmi launched the 5G variant of the Note 10 Pro. The phone is currently exclusive to the Chinese market and is quite different from the global variant of the Note 10 Pro. Let us look at the key specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G in Nepal.
Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G Overview:
Design and Display
Here, Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G features a 6.6-inch display with a center-placed punch-hole cut-out. The refresh rate and touch sampling rate are listed at 120Hz and 240Hz, respectively. But contrary to the global variant of Note 10 Pro that features an AMOLED screen, this one has an LCD panel.
At the back, the camera module looks slightly different but it is in its usual position. The phone is available in three colors – Magic Green, Star Yarn, and Moon Soul. Redmi has used a stereoscopic grating technique for the rear panel. This results in a textured finish, which the company claims is fingerprint-resistant.
Under the hood, MediaTek’s Dimensity 1100 runs the show. It is a 5G chipset based on TSMC’s 6nm process that was announced earlier this year. This cannot go head-to-head against Qualcomm’s best but is better suited at value-for-money devices like this one.
Redmi says the Note 10 Pro 5G performs 72% better than its predecessor. The inclusion of UFS 3.1 storage could also have contributed to it.
To keep the core temperature of the device down during intensive tasks, Redmi has included a VC (Vapor Chamber) liquid cooling system with temperature sensors. The total heat dissipation area is 16,370mm2. This includes the surface area of all the components including the vapor chamber, graphite layer, thermal gel, and copper foil.
Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G only has three cameras at the back. The 64MP primary camera uses a 1/2” sensor that shoots 4-in-1 pixel binned images by default. It’s a downgrade from the 108MP sensor that is on both the Note 9 Pro 5G and Note 10 Pro (Global).
This is accompanied by an 8MP sensor with an ultrawide lens. There is a 2MP camera with a macro lens to make up the numbers. The rear camera setup is capable of recording 4K videos at 30 fps.
Moving on, Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G has a 16MP selfie camera up front that can record 1080p videos at 30fps.
Rest of the features
Backing the whole setup is a 5,000mAh Li-ion battery. A 67W charger is included in the box which even supports PD and QC charging protocols. In terms of connectivity, Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G supports 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and NFC.
The stereo speakers here are custom-tuned by JBL. The phone supports Hi-Res audio in both wired and wireless connection. For the latter, you’ll need a Type-C to 3.5mm dongle as the phone does not have a headphone jack.
Moving on, Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometrics. It also uses the Razer Mechanical Keyboard app that we saw on the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition. The keyboard has multiple custom-made features including “RGB lighting” effects, sound effects, and X-axis linear “mechanical feedback.”
