The Redmi Note 9 series is almost a new smartphone series. But Xiaomi never saw a problem in the release of sequels when their devices are still new. For the past two years, we have become accustomed to two new generations of Redmi Note each year and obviously this will happen again. In the first half of 2020, Redmi introduced a plethora of headphones that make up the Redmi Note 9. For the second half, we believe that the company is preparing the largest entry for the series in the form of the Redmi Note 10. You may be wondering, why the Redmi Note 10 is so special. Well, it could be the first Redmi Note phone to have 5G connectivity.
The Redmi Note 10 5G is marked with Dimensity 820 SoC
A smartphone with the Redmi Note 10 moniker has been spotted on the reference site, AI reference point. The smartphone not only appears in the list but steals the second place. So far, the only high-performance device is the Vivo iQOO Z1 with a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor. If you are curious, this Redmi Note 10 has the Dimensity 820 SoC which also comes from the Taiwanese chipset manufacturer. The Dimensity series has the best MediaTek chipsets to date. They bring 5G performance and connectivity and are quite affordable.
The first Redmi Note with 5G connectivity
The listing was first spotted by the popular leakster Digital Chat Station. Judging by the leak, the Redmi Note 10 will offer the same performance as the Chinese-only Redmi 10X 5G and Redmi 10X Pro 5G. Since these two devices never left China, we do not think they will do it now that the Note 10 is ready to come with this chipset. In addition to the Dimensity 820 SoC, the phone has 8 GB of RAM and has Android 10. The list shows that it was a benchmark on Monday, July 20th. Of course, we can not consider this reference list as indisputable proof of the existence of the Note 10, but it makes sense.
Xiaomi could perform the first tests on a device that is still in progress. It may take several more months. In addition, we expect more than a vanilla Note 10. This year, Xiaomi introduced three Note 9 smartphones. It is worth noting that having the Dimensity 820 in the note 10 “vanilla” or “basic” is good. This chipset easily surpasses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G and breaks the 400,000+ barrier on AnTuTu. We could even see a Pro variant with Dimensity 1000+ or even a Qualcomm chipset.
It may be soon for the Note 10, but we can not forget the fact that the Redmi Note 8 series was released in August last year. So, we will not be surprised to see the Note 10 series before the end of the third quarter of 2020.
