After weeks of leaks and rumors, it’s time to officially talk about the Redmi 10X and Redmi 10X Pro. Both devices have just been made official in China and we can know all the details of their design and characteristics. They come as two of the best options in the current mid-range due to their price and processor. If you were thinking of renewing your mobile for a mid-range Xiaomi, these terminals maybe your best option. Of course, at the moment there is no news about its commercial expansion to international markets.
Redmi 10X design and features
This device comes with the design that had been previously leaked. It maintains the design line of the Redmi Note 9, although with some differences. At the rear this terminal has 3 cameras and a square module that we have already seen in other terminals. This back is covered by glass and we did not find a fingerprint sensor. This component is under the screen, one of the main differences with the Redmi Note 9.
The front end also has an important change: the notch. For these models the company has decided to include a small notch on the top and not a hole in the screen. This will save costs and reach all users who do not want to bet on a hole in the screen. Its bezels are quite small, so the use of the front is very good.
- 6.57-inch AMOLED screen in FullHD + resolution
- Processor MediaTek Dimenstity 820 5G
- 6 or 8 GB of LPDDRX 4 RAM
- 64, 128 or 256 GB of internal storage
- Triple rear camera:
- 48 MP main sensor
- 8MP wide-angle
- 2 MP depth sensor
- 16 MP front camera
- Metal and glass body
- On-screen fingerprint sensor
- USB C and 3.5mm jack
- Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth…
- 4,520 mAh battery with 22.5 W fast charge
- Android 10 and MIUI 12
Among all the components we can highlight the new MediaTek Dimensity 820 5G, one of the most powerful processors in the mid-range. It was introduced recently and its performance tests place it above Qualcomm snapdragon 765. But not a little over the top, but quite a bit. This, along with the other features, make this Redmi 10X one of the most powerful mid-range phones on the market today.
Redmi 10X Pro: better camera and faster fast charge
The leaks did not name a Pro model, but the company has decided to offer it with improvements to the camera, RAM and fast charging. Here we leave you with the characteristics that change in the Pro model:
- Only version of 8 GB of RAM
- Quad rear camera:
- 48 MP main sensor
- 8MP wide-angle
- 8 MP telephoto – digital zoom up to 30x
- 5 MP Macro Sensor
- 33W fast charge
The rest of the characteristics are shared with the normal model, the Redmi 10X. The screen, the processor, the front camera, everything is the same in both devices. Now you will be the one to decide if you need that extra on camera and fast charging to spend a little more on the ‘Pro’ model.
Redmi 10X and 10X Pro price and availability
These devices have just been announced in China with official prices for that market. At the moment we do not know if they will be available in Europe or Latin America in the future. These are the prices for the Chinese market of the different versions:
- Redmi 10X 6 + 64 GB – 1599 yuan – $ 224 – 204 euros
- Redmi 10X 6 + 128 GB – 1799 yuan – $ 252 – 230 euros

These prices have been set in China, so the price, if they end up reaching the West, will increase slightly in all models. Still, they offer very interesting prices that can make things difficult for the Redmi Note 9.
