Redmi Note 10 Lite has been floating around the rumor mill for a long time while making multiple appearances online in the form of leaks. The Lite variant of the Redmi Note 10 series is set to hit the store shelves in India soon. On the downside, the new model is speculated to be a rebadged Redmi Note 9 Pro smartphone. Redmi launched the original Note 9 Pro in March 2020.
The Chinese smartphone maker is no longer offering the Redmi Note 10 in the Indonesian market. The word on the street is that the company stopped manufacturing the smartphone citing a major chipset shortage. The Redmi Note 10 came with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 SoC when it was unveiled earlier this year.

Also, the listing hints at its imminent launch in the country, along with the Redmi Note 10 Lite. The aforesaid model number was spotted on the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) website earlier this month. Tipster Skrzypek pointed out a notable similarity between the upcoming Redmi Note 10 Lite, and 2020’s Redmi Note 9 Pro global version / Redmi Note 9S Indian version. They all have the same “curtana” codename. This suggests that the Note 10 Lite could actually be a rebranded Redmi Note 9, according to Gadgets360.
