Leaks and rumours have become a part of product launches, with leaksters using revealing key details of the smartphone prior to the launch, but, it is quite odd for the company that is launching a new product soon to reveal the entirety of the smartphone prior to the official launch, but, that is exactly what Xiaomi has done to its upcoming budget handset, the Redmi 10.
Ahead of the launch of the Redmi 10, Xiaomi accidentally leaked the official blog post for the smartphone, but, thanks to the folks at Android Authority, we know a bit about what Redmi's number series handset will bring, with the details hinting at a major upgrade over the rather dated Redmi 9.
Before going through the specifications, it is worth noting that Redmi is finally shifting up the design for its regular number series handset, with the design being aesthetically similar to Xiaomi's premium handsets.
Redmi 10: Leaked Specifications
The device will be available in three different hues, two matte options, namely Carbon Gray and Pebble White, with a rather shiny Sea Blue hue rounding off the available options.
Coming to the specifications, the Redmi 10 will come with a massive upgrade to the screen, with the device featuring a 6.5-inch FHD+ resolution display with a refresh rate of 90Hz, with the interesting bit being that the display would house adaptive refresh rate, with the device automatically choosing the refresh rate depending on the situation.
Performance-wise, the device will make use of the MediaTek Helio G88 chipset with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There will be a rather large 5000 mAh battery with support for 18W charging, but the included charger will be a 22.5W unit.
Optics wise, the Redmi 10 will be the first device from the Redmi base series to use a 50MP primary sensor, which would be a major upgrade over the Redmi 9's 13MP shooter that was known for low-light issues. The camera array is topped off with an 8MP ultra-wide snapper, a 2MP macro sensor and a final 2MP depth sensor, with the selfie duties being handled by an 8MP snapper.
Miscellaneous features include dual speakers, support for a headphone jack, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor with MIUI 12.5, probably with Android 11 out of the box.
The blog post failed to reveal the pricing of the handset, but, Xiaomi would probably refrain from crossing the Redmi 9's pricing, which is already subject to competition by the likes of Realme. When the device does launch, it will supposedly be offered in three variants, 4GB+64GB, 6GB+128GB and 4GB+128GB.
