Xiaomi hosted an event in China today to launch several products, including RedmiBook laptops and a Redmi smart TV. At the same event, the brand has announced its latest Redmi smartphones, the Redmi 10X and 10X Pro. Notably, the handsets are the first to come powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 820 SoC, which is an affordable 5G-enabled processor.
The Redmi 10X duo share several design elements with the Redmi Note 9 Pro series. Xiaomi recently revealed that the Redmi 10X scored an impressive 4,15,672 points on AnTuTu. The key highlights of the devices include 5G connectivity, an in-display fingerprint sensor, quad cameras, and a beefy 4,520mAh battery.
Redmi 10X and 10X Pro specifications and features
The Redmi 10X duo ship with an 6.57-inch full HD+ AMOLED display, with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera. The display offers features like DC dimming, HDR10 +, and in-display optical fingerprint scanner. The display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5, while an IP53 rating provides dust and water resistance.
As for the configuration, the smartphones are being offered with a 7nm Dimensity 820 SoC, accompanied by a Mali G77 GPU. The processor is paired with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, on both the standard and Pro variants.
The Redmi 10X pro is equipped with four cameras on the back, consisting of a 48-megapixel primary camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel macro and an 8MP 30x zoom telephoto lens.
