The launch date for Redmi 10 India is set for March 17, the Xiaomi sub-brand announced on Thursday. The new Redmi phone is said to come with a waterdrop-style display notch and be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC that is twice as fast as the previous generation. The Redmi 10 in India is also teased with a dual rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel primary sensor. The Redmi 10 was presented worldwide last year. The brand also presented its upgrade as Redmi 10 2022 last month.
Redmi 10 India launch details
The official Redmi India social media account announced the launch date of the Redmi 10 in the country. Xiaomi also sent out a media invitation for the launch.
Additionally, Xiaomi has created one own microsite to tease the launch of the Redmi 10 in the country. The microsite suggests that the Indian variant of the Redmi 10 could come with a different list of specs than what was available with its global model last year. The new phone also seems to differ from the Redmi 10 2022 that arrived last month, with some differences compared to the original model.
Redmi 10 price in India (expected)
The price of Redmi 10 in India is expected to be at the same level as the Redmi 9 that debuted in the country in August 2020, starting at Rs. 8,999. The older model now has one slightly higher current price from Rs. 9,499 for the 4GB + 64GB configuration.
The Redmi 10 is also expected to be cheaper than the Redmi 10 Prime, which was released in September with a starting price of Rs. 12,499.
Redmi 10 specifications (expected)
According to the microsite, the Redmi 10 in India will feature a waterdrop-style display notch. This is different from the global Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 2022, both of which have a hole-punch display design. The new smartphone is also said to have a 6nm Snapdragon SoC – unlike the global models, which both have the MediaTek Helio G88 chip.
The Redmi 10 in India is also teased with a dual rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel primary sensor. In comparison, Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 launched in global markets in 2022 with a quad rear camera setup, although both phones also sported a 50-megapixel sensor as the primary sensor.
In addition, the finish of the Indian variant of the Redmi 10 also seems to differ from what was launched in the global markets. The microsite reveals that the phone has a smudge-free finish with a textured design.
Other teasers available on the microsite reveal that the Redmi 10 will come with “ultra-fast” storage, a “massive” battery and “fast charging” support in India. The phone is also teased with a “big” display.
The India variant of the Redmi 10 also seems to have a fingerprint sensor on the back. In contrast, the original Redmi 10 and Redmi 10 2022 offer a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
