From the legendary Redmi Note 7 to the Redmi Note 10 series, Xiaomi has offered flagship level experience to Nigerians like unseen before. Based on that success, the Redmi Note 10 line up is its largest thus far and today we welcome the final piece of the jigsaw – Redmi Note 10 5G- . Now, we are fully ready to #ChallengeOurBoundaries. Said Mr. Somoye Habeeb Redmi Note 10 5G uses the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor and 5G modem, which helps keep the cost down while still offering plenty of performance and functionality. The Redmi Note 10 5G has a similar design to the Xiaomi Mi 11, with a stepped, eye-catching camera module on the back of the phone, and it comes in several colors including green and blue.
The camera module doesn’t contain any surprises though and is equipped with a 48-megapixel main camera and a pair of 2MP cameras for macro and depth images. On the front is a 6.5-inch screen with a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling, and because it has an adaptive rate it shouldn’t drain the battery too quickly either. The Redmi Note 10 5G has a big 5,000mAh battery inside anyway, with 18W fast charging.
Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a fingerprint sensor set in the power button on the side of the phone, NFC for mobile payments, and an 8MP selfie camera in a hole-punch cutout at the top of the screen. It comes in two configurations — a 64GB version with 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB version with 4GB of RAM.
The cheapest 4GB/64GB Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G costs N92,500, while the 4GB/128GB model is only a little more at N100,800 and the 6GB/128GB model cost N111,000 For twice the storage space, it’s probably worth the extra seeing as the phone does not have a MicroSD card slot. In the global market, smartphones like the Redmi Note 10 5G is part of the first wave of affordable 5G devices enabled by fast-but-reasonably-priced chips from MediaTek, and it’s a growing trend to watch for over the coming year.
