Redmi 10X 5G, Redmi 10X Pro and Redmi K30i 5G launched in China

After several leaks and teasers, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has now officially unveiled the new Redmi 10X series in China. The series consists of three devices — the Redmi 10X 5G, Redmi 10X Pro, and Redmi 10X 4G — with the latter being a rebranded Redmi Note 9 which was launched earlier this year. Along with the Redmi 10X series, the company has also launched a new device in the Redmi K30 series — the Redmi K30i 5G.

Redmi 10X Series

As teased earlier, the Redmi 10X and Redmi 10X Pro are powered by MediaTek’s new mid-range Dimensity 820 chipset and feature 6.57-inch FHD+ AMOLED displays with 180Hz touch sampling and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Both the devices feature a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 5MP macro camera on the back, with the Redmi 10X Pro featuring an additional 8MP telephoto module. Over on the front, the non-pro variant features a 16MP selfie shooter, while the 10X Pro packs in a 20MP selfie camera.

The MediaTek Dimensity 820 chipset is accompanied by either 6GB or 8GB RAM on the Redmi 10X, while the 10X Pro is only available in an 8GB RAM variant. The storage on the devices ranges from 64GB to 256GB. Both phones are equipped with a 4,520mAh battery, which supports 22.5W fast charging on the regular 10X and 33W fast charging on the 10X Pro. In terms of software, both devices in the 10X series run MIUI 12 based on Android 10.
