Redmi Note 10T launched in India as race heats up for affordable 5G phones

Xiaomi today expanded its Redmi Note 10 series in India with the launch of the Redmi Note 10T. The new phone is essentially a rebrand of the Redmi Note 10 5G available in Europe and China. In fact, a phone with the exact same specification already exists in India under the alias of the POCO M3 Pro 5G. However, the popularity and general awareness about the Redmi Note brand means the Redmi Note 10T has the potential to be much more successful than the POCO M3 Pro as POCO as a brand remains a relatively new name among average users.
