Redmi Note 10 Pro Max: 5 new features it brings to the Redmi Note series
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is the top-end model of this year’s Redmi Note line-up. As such the handset is loaded with several premium features. Some of these features mark their debut in the Redmi Note series with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. Here are the 5 firsts that the Redmi Note 1o Pro Max brings for the Redmi Note series.
When the brands like POCO and Xiaomi started offering high refresh rate displays under Rs 20,000 segment, the actual display panel was IPS LCD. The tech industry has been divided into whether they prefer AMOLED panels with lower refresh rates or LCD panels with higher refresh rates. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is the first from the brand to offer an AMOLED panel with a high refresh rate.
The smartphone is equipped with a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED display panel. The screen offers a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels with 1,200nits of peak brightness. The display also supports a 100 percent DCI-P3 colour gamut and HDR10.
120Hz refresh rate
Barring the POCO X series devices namely POCO X2 and POCO X3, there are currently no other smartphones under Rs 20,000 offering a 120Hz refresh rate. As mentioned before, these smartphones offer a high refresh rate, but at the cost of sacrificing an AMOLED panel. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is not only the first Redmi Note series device to offer a 120Hz refresh rate display but also the first in India to offer a Super AMOLED panel with 120Hz under Rs 20,000.
108MP primary camera
Xiaomi is no stranger to launching smartphones with affordable 108-megapixel smartphones. The first from the brand was the Xiaomi Mi 10i (review), which starts at Rs 20,999 and comes with 5G support. With the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, the brand has pushed the envelope further and te price lower. Not only is the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max the first Redmi Note series smartphone to feature 108-megapixel primary camera but it also the most affordable 108-megapixel camera phone.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is equipped with the 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 camera, which has been confirmed to arrive on Realme 8 Pro as well. The primary camera is backed by a 5-megapixel super macro shooter, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
Dual stereo speakers
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is also the first in the Redmi Note series to offer dual stereo speakers. This basically means that the smartphone has two separate speakers on each side to create stereo sound. This is quite useful if you play games, listen to music, or stream online content a lot on your phone, without using headphones.
The Redmi Note 10 series including the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max get a major design refresh. This is the first time Xiaomi is using what it calls Evol design on the Redmi Note series. Prima facie, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max looks like a miniature Xiaomi Mi 11. The handset comes with a unique camera module and frosted glass back, which gives it a premium hand feel. Additionally, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has the smallest punch-hole cutout measuring 2.96mm.
