Xiaomi has just made official the release date of the Redmi Note 10, its new mid-range smartphone. Or rather, it’s the new family of mid-range devices, since the Chinese company speaks of Redmi Note 10 Series, so we can expect at least two.

The device will be presented in India on March 4 and, sticking to Xiaomi’s track record, it is to be expected that sometime later they will hold another international event to announce its arrival in other markets. In any case, on March 4 we will finally meet the new Chinese mid-range, but until the day arrives, let’s review what we know, or think we know, about them.
What we know about the Redmi Note 10…
Looking back we see that the Redmi Note 9 series has been a very large family. There have been Redmi Note 9s, Redmi Note 9S, Redmi Note 9T, Redmi Note 9 Pro… Xiaomi has this eagerness to launch several devices from the same family with different features and price ranges and, seeing that the Chinese firm is talking about Redmi Note 10 Series, it would not be unusual for it to repeat the same move with its new mid-range.
That said, the truth is that not much is known about these new smartphones. Leaks are suggesting that there will be four models, one standard and one Pro with their respective 5G versions, although it would be a peculiar move, given that Xiaomi already has mid-range 5G devices at affordable prices and a Redmi Note 10 5G with a low price could cannibalize the 4G version. It will be a matter of time before we find out.
The company, for the moment, has not advanced specifications, but it is expected to do so over the next few days. What they did do was post a poll on Twitter asking their followers if they preferred a 120 Hz IPS/LCD panel or an AMOLED panel for their Redmi Note 10. The AMOLED technology won by a landslide and the tweet was deleted, so perhaps we have a clue about what to expect in terms of screen.
Finally, as they explain in Xataka Android, it would not be strange that the new Xiaomi smartphones mount the latest mid-range processors from Qualcomm and MediaTek. These include, among others, the Dimensity 800, Snapdragon 732G, and Snapdragon 750G, as implemented in the rumored 4G and 5G models. Be that as it may, we will find out on March 4.
