Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G hardware, features
The Note 10 Pro 5G comes with a 6.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD display with fast 120Hz refresh rate. The version sold in India has Super AMOLED. There is no HDR support in the China-only Note 10 Pro either. Though, unlike the version sold in India, the newly announced Note 10 Pro has Gorilla Glass Victus protection, Corning’s latest. The China-only Note 10 Pro also has dual speakers, but they are tuned by JBL, sort of like the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition.
Under the hood, the new Note 10 Pro 5G has a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 5G-ready SoC (Snapdragon 732G in the version sold in India). This is paired with up to 8GB LPDDR4x RAM and up to 256GB UFS 3.1 storage. Software inside the phone is MIUI 12.5. A 5,000mAh battery powers the phone. This version of Note 10 Pro supports 67W fast charging (the version sold in India can only top 33W).
For photography, the new Note 10 Pro has a 64MP main, 8MP ultra-wide-angle and another 2MP macro camera. On the front, it has a 16MP camera.
The China-only Redmi Note 10 Pro also has a slightly tweaked design with a new camera housing.
