Back in March this year, Xiaomi has unveiled its Redmi Note 10 series in global markets and in India. In India’s case, the lineup was composed of a Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10S, Redmi Note 10 Pro, and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. On global markets, the company had an extra variant with 5G dubbed Redmi Note 10 5G. Now, Xiaomi India is gearing up to introduce this particular variant as Redmi Note 10T 5G. The company already started the teaser campaign calling Mi Fans to stay tuned for a “Fast and Futuristic” smartphone.
Interestingly, Xiaomi had recently launched the POCO M3 Pro 5G in India which already is very similar in specs to the Redmi Note 10 5G save from the distinct POCO design. Now, the company belives that there is enough room for another variant with similar specs. Redmi India, earlier today, posted a teaser on its social media handles hinting towards the device’s launch. The device will be sold as an Amazon exclusive as a micro-site is already live. Worth noting that the device recently went live in Russia.
