Xiaomi has become the latest company to introduce an affordable smartphone withÂ 5G in Nigeria, launching the Redmi Note 10 5G this day Monday, June 21stÂ 2021 has been a busy day for interesting new 5G phones at reasonable prices, with the Redmi Note 10 5G.
From the legendary Redmi Note 7 to the Redmi Note 10 series, Xiaomi has offered the flagship-level experience to Nigerians like unseen before. Based on that success, the Redmi Note 10 lineup is its largest thus far and today we welcome the final piece of the jigsaw â Redmi Note 10 5G. #ChallengeOurBoundaries.
Redmi Note 10Â 5GÂ uses the MediaTekDimensity 700 processor and 5G modem, which helps keep the cost down while still offering plenty of performance and functionality. The Redmi Note 10Â 5GÂ has a similar design to theÂ Xiaomi Mi 11, with a stepped, eye-catching camera module on the back of the phone, and it comes in several colours including green and blue.
The camera module doesnât contain any surprises though and is equipped with a 48-megapixel main camera and a pair of 2MP cameras for macro and depth images. On the front is a 6.5-inch screen with a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling, and because it has an adaptive rate it shouldnât drain the battery too quickly either. The Redmi Note 10 5G has a big 5,000mAh battery inside anyway, with 18W fast charging.
Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a fingerprint sensor set in the power button on the side of the phone, NFC for mobile payments, and an 8MP selfie camera in a hole-punch cutout at the top of the screen. It comes in two configurations â a 64GB version with 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB version with 4GB of RAM.
The cheapest 4GB/64GBÂ Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5GÂ costsÂ N92,500, while the 4GB/128GB model is only a little more atN100,800Â and the 6GB/128GB model costÂ N111,000For twice the storage space, itâs probably worth the extra seeing as the phone does not have a MicroSD card slot.
In the global market, smartphones like the Redmi Note 10 5G is part of the first wave of affordableÂ 5GÂ devices enabled by fast-but-reasonably-priced chips from MediaTek, and itâsÂ a growing trendÂ to watch for over the coming year.
