The Redmi Note 10 Pro certainly has a lot to do for it, what about the 108 MP main camera, 120 Hz AMOLED screen and all that – and let’s not forget the affordable price. But one thing is missing and that is 5G connectivity.
The spread of 5G across the globe may have been hampered by the pandemic, but coverage is still growing at a steady pace, so even for a mid-ranger, it will be important to offer next-generation connectivity. After all, Xiaomi already has a couple of 5G ‘Lite’ branded devices in this class, but they are more expensive than Redmis.
According to a new rumor accompanied by the image you can see above, a Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G may be in the works. This looks like an official promo image for the Spanish market and what is pictured is a smartphone that looks like the Redmi Note 10 Pro from the back. And then there is all the talk about challenging the boundaries of 5G connectivity and such.
So could it be? Could this be our first look at the upcoming Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G? Well, obviously only time will tell, but we really can not see why Xiaomi would not work on such a device. Hopefully it gets a better chipset than the Snapdragon 732G inside the 4G model.
Rumor has it – it will be the Snapdragon 750G, which is still an improvement, so we’ll take it. It’s probably best not to hope for the Snapdragon 780G, as its use will definitely cannibalize sales of the newly launched Mi 11 Lite 5G, which is more expensive.
Aside from this difference, it remains to be seen whether the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G will be identical to its 4G sibling. This is not a given as the Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 5G are very different devices despite the confusing names.
