Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro Hands-on
Xiaomi recently launched its Redmi Note 10 Series for the global market, packing powerful specs and affordable prices. One member worth looking at is the Redmi Note 10 Pro with 108MP quad-rear cameras. We finally got our hands on one so here’s our initial take on the device.
When it comes to the design, the Redmi Note 10 Pro marks a big improvement over the Note 9 Pro. The back panel is made of glass, which, as expected, does a poor job in keeping smudges out of sight. The good news is, there’s a complimentary jelly case included in the package. The unit we have is the Onyx Gray model, but there’s a Glacier Blue and Gradient Bronze as well.
Looking at the right, you can see the volume rocker and the power button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
On the left, you’ll find its triple card slot for two nano-SIM cards and a microSD card.
Up top are the headphone jack, secondary speaker, secondary microphone, and an IR blaster.
While at the bottom you’ll find its loudspeaker, main microphone, and USB Type-C port.
For the display, the Note 10 Pro gets a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED DotDisplay with thin bezels and a small punch-hole on the upper center for the 16MP front camera. Above that is the earpiece. As for protection, it’s mounted with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with a pre-installed screen protector.
Powering the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G paired with an Adreno 618 GPU, 6GB/8GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of storage. It runs on MIUI 12 based on Android 11 and is equipped with a generous 5,020 mAh battery capacity with support for 33W fast charging.
For the cameras, it has a similar camera module design found on the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Mi 10 Ultra. The big lens with a silver-coated ring is the 108MP sensor then below it is the 8MP ultra-wide lens, then the 5MP macro sensor, and the 2MP depth sensor. We’ll discuss more on its performance in our full review, but for now, here are a few sample photos you can check out:
If you’re looking for the price, unfortunately, Xiaomi Philippines is yet to announce it. But it looks like a good candidate for users who are looking for a smartphone with fancy cameras. We’ll know more in our full review.
