Xiaomi is preparing up for the launch of the Redmi 10 series smartphone in India and possibly on global markets. Back in April, reports emerged suggesting the launch of the Redmi 10 series in India. The launch date of the smartphone series is yet to be revealed. However, the company has started teasing the launch of new smartphones. Today, the company’s official Indian Twitter handle has posted a cryptic tweet that does hint at the arrival of the Redmi 10 series.
Everything has started with the Redmi smartphones and now Xiaomi is one of the strongest firms in the mid-range department. Nowadays, the Redmi Note series is way more popular than the conventional Redmi smartphones. Those are now under the low-end segment. The Redmi Note series, on the other hand, now brings the usual batch of mid-range and premium mid-range smartphones. Due to this new strategy, we expect the Redmi 10 series to bring a mid-range smartphone with a big value-for-money appeal and an entry-level device under the C-series.
Redmi 10 series to start a “Redmi Revolution”
Today, Redmi India has posted a short 12-second video that mentions the “Redmi Revolution”. Alongside the video, in the tweet, Redmi also invites its fans to keep tuned on its Twitter timeline for more #10on10 action. With this cryptic tweet, we assume that the company is building the hype for the arrival of the Redmi 10 series smartphones. It will likely start with the Redmi 10, but a Redmi 10c should also make part of the family. However, if the company follows the last year’s pattern the lineup will be way bigger.
Last year, Xiaomi unveiled a Redmi 9, Redmi 9 Prime, Redmi 9A, Redmi 9T, and Redmi 9i, Redmi 9C. Of course, a lot of these are rebrandings based on the Redmi 9 (Helio G80), Redmi 9A (Helio G25), Redmi 9C (Helio G35), and the Chinese Redmi Note 9 4G (Snapdragon 662). Even the POCO M2 was based on the original Redmi 9. The new lineup should stick with MediaTek chips, but this time around we may see a high-refresh-rate screen with at least 90Hz in the regular Redmi 10. We also expect a single 5G variant, possibly featuring the Dimensity 700 SoC. These devices will likely come with MIUI 12.5 straight out of the box and will be based on Android 11. The design of the Redmi series will probably reminiscent of the Redmi Note 10 series. However, the devices may leave the glass build behind in favor of cheaper plastic unibody. We also expect a common LCD instead of AMOLED. More details should keep popping out in the new few days.
We also expect a global release to follow, as this lineup has worldwide popularity.
