[Update: March 4] Redmi Note 10 series is officially launching in India next month
When it comes to offering the best bang for buck smartphone experience, few can match Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series. With each new generation, the Redmi Note lineup has pushed the limits of what one normally expects from a budget phone, bringing substantial hardware upgrades while still maintaining an affordable price tag. It’s been a year since Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro series in India. Although we have been hearing rumors about Xiaomi soon launching the Redmi Note 10 series in India for a while now, there hasn’t been an official confirmation yet.
That changes today as Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi India Managing Director, took to Twitter to share a teaser of the upcoming Redmi Note 10 lineup.

The teaser confirms the Redmi Note 10 series will be launching in India in early March. No other info has been shared, including the concrete launch date. Separately, Amazon India has also set up a landing page for the Redmi Note 10 series, hinting that the next lineup could be an Amazon exclusive, just like the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
Although there’s no official word on the specifications and design, we have a fair idea as to what to expect from the newest contenders in the Redmi Note series. A leak from the XiaomiUI Telegram group revealed that the Redmi Note 10 Pro could feature a 120Hz IPS LCD with support for MEMC tech and a quad-camera setup comprised of a 64MP primary sensor. Additionally, the leak also revealed that the device might feature Qualcomm SM7150 Platform (Snapdragon 732G) and a 5,050mAh battery.
Separately, a report from Ishan Agarwal last month shed light on storage options. According to him, the standard Redmi Note 10 will come in two variants: 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 64GB, while the Redmi Note Pro will be offered in three variants: 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB. He also mentioned that Xiaomi is planning to price the devices more aggressively this time around to take on its arch-rival Realme.
Update: Redmi Note 10 series to launch on March 4 in India
Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 10 series in India on March 4th, as per the official announcement by the company. This will also be the Global Debut of the lineup.
