Redmi Note 10 Global to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 processor

Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi is about to launch the new Redmi Note 10 series on March 4th. Just before the official launch, we can concur from a series of leaks that the Note 10 will be powered by the Snapdragon 678 processor.

In a series of leaked images that are making rounds, we can see the phone and the box clearly. From the unboxing shots, we notice that the phone will feature a 6.43-inch AMOLED DotDisplay with a center punch-hole. This should be a Full HD+ panel, but there is no mention of refresh rate. We expect this to be capped up at 60Hz, given the pricing of the phone.

The phone will be powered by the Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 processor with 4GB and 6GB RAM, depending on the variant. From the box, we can also make out a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Upon visiting the product page on Amazon, we get to see the mention of dual speakers. Given the chipset, it is fair to say that at least the Vanilla Note 10 will be a 4G device.

Apart from this, there is also mention of a 48MP quad-camera setup which will include an ultra-wide camera and a macro camera. The phone will support 33W fast charging, similar to the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. Mi India’s head Manu Jain today confirmed the fact that the Redmi Note 10 series will have a 5MP Super-Macro lens and that this is not a normal 5MP macro seen in the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max; this is telephoto built into a macro that allows you 2x closer.

We believe this Super-Macro lens will be bundled on the Note 10 Pro Max along with the much anticipated 108MP HM2 sensor. There is no word on the pricing, but from today’s leak, we are fairly confident that the Note 10 series should start at INR 14,999 in India.
