As you can see in the image above, the Redmi 10 looks nothing like its predecessor. It features a much more premium design with a Mi 10 Ultra-like camera module and a centered hole-punch cutout. The phone has a 6.5-inch FHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a big upgrade over the 60Hz panel on its predecessor. Like Xiaomi's best Android phones, the Redmi 10's display supports variable refresh rate technology. Powering the entry-level phone is MediaTek's new Helio G88 chipset, which is paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

On the back of the phone is a quad-camera setup with a 50MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor. There's an 8MP selfie camera on the front, housed within a centered hole-punch cutout.

The phone packs a large 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. However, it will ship with a 22.5W charger in the box. Other key features of the Redmi 10 include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and stereo speakers. It runs Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 out of the box. While there's no word on the phone's pricing, the phone is slated to go official on August 18.
