Earlier this month, reports about a new Redmi 5G smartphone started to pop out everywhere. This particular handset also made a visit to TENAA’s website later. According to the listing, the device would feature a 6.57-inch OLED display, 4,420mAh battery, and 48MP camera. Moreover, this particular handset would a sport the same design language found in the recently released Redmi Note 9 series. Now, it’s confirmed this device is the rumored Redmi 10X. The first device to reach the market with MediaTek’s Dimensity 820 SoC. According to Redmi, the new handset will be revealed in China on May 26.
This particular device is truly exciting since it can reach the market as the cheapest 5G smartphone. The MediaTek 820 SoC is a truly capable SoC featuring 4 big ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.6Ghz and 4 little ARM Cortex-A55 cores. The handset also boasts the capable ARM Mali G57 GPU. According to a post made by Xiaomi’s product manager, Wang Teng Thomas, the company has worked closely with MediaTek to customize the new chip. For that reason, the Redmi 10X will score over 410,000 on the AnTuTu benchmark. That score is out of the league of most mid-range devices available, but still, MediaTek states that this is a mid-range SoC.
According to the teaser, the Redmi 10X will be a new series of devices. So we’re going to see more than just a single smartphone. According to 91Mobiles, Xiaomi will launch Redmi 10X 4G, Redmi 10X 5G, and Redmi 10X Pro, which is currently still in the works. According to the post, the Redmi 10X 4G boasts MediaTek Helio G70 chipset. The report also states that the 4G variant will be available in White, Sky Blue and Green colors. However, the 5G handset will have a variety of colors including Dark Blue, Violet, Gold, and Silver.
Besides the chipsets, the Redmi 10X 4G will come in 4GB + 128GB and 6GB + 128GB versions. The 5G version, on another hand, will come in 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB. With so many variants for the Dimensity 820 version, we believe that Redmi wants to fill this handset in several price ranges whereas the 6GB/64GB will sit as the cheapest offering.
We believe that more details will keep popping out in the coming days.
