Xiaomi has presented this Thursday its new terminal: the Redmi Note 10 Pro, a terminal that stands out for its battery, which exceeds 5,000 mAh, as well as for the photographic section, where it adds 4 sensors, with the main one of 108 megapixels.

The brand comes from 2020 in which it has reaped quite a few successes, among them, being the only manufacturer that grew during the third quarter of that year (19%), despite the fact that the market as a whole decreased by 15%, as well as surpassing Apple in market share during the fourth quarter with 13.1% compared to 11.8% of the apple company.

In this context, the Chinese company wants to repeat these data and even improve them, so it has started the year with announcements in style.

In early January, during a virtual press conference, the brand unveiled new devices that could be enjoyed throughout 2021. Thus, it presented the Redmi Note 9T, which arrived with the aim of democratizing 5G and making it accessible to all pockets, as well as the Redmi 9T, with a 6.53-inch screen with FullHD resolution and a 6,000 mAh battery for less than 160 euros.

Incredible power, 108-megapixel camera and everything you could ask for in connectivity: this is the Mi 11, the terminal with which Xiaomi aims to conquer the high-end.

At the same press conference, the Chinese manufacturer unveiled other products such as a security camera or a smartwatch under the name Mi Smart Clock.

Shortly after, the company presented worldwide the Mi 11, the terminal with which the company aims to reign in the high-end and compete directly with the iPhone 12 or the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Now, less than a month later, Xiaomi is back with a new presentation of another of its powerful terminals: the Redmi Note 10 Pro. If you want to know the key features of this terminal, read on…

A 6.67-inch display accompanied by a beautiful design in pastel shades.

The smartphone has dimensions of 164 x 76.5 x 8.1 mm and weighs 193 grams, which is lower than its predecessor, the Redmi Note 9T (161.96 x 77.25 x 9.05 mm and 199 grams). The Redmi Note 10 Pro is available in black (Onyx Gray), blue (Glacier Blue), and bronze (Gradient Bronze).

The screen reaches 6.67 inches and consists of an AMOLED DotDisplay panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz, protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The company stresses that this composition allows you to enjoy brighter colors and deeper blacks.

In addition, as Xiaomi explains, it has certification for eye protection, as well as water resistance.

At first glance, you can appreciate the curved edges that make up the terminal, which has the hole related to the front camera(notch) in the center of the composition, moving away from the form that had been adopted with other devices such as the Redmi Note 9T or the Mi 11, where it was located in the left corner.

Regarding security, the Redmi Note 10 Pro incorporates facial unlocking using artificial intelligence, as well as a fingerprint sensor on the side. Regarding the latter tool, the company has pointed out that it is integrated for a “more comfortable feel in the hand without compromising ease of use.”

A 108-megapixel main camera that allows capturing “stunning details”.

The device incorporates a 16-megapixel camera on the front. Meanwhile, the rear features a 108-megapixel main, an 8-megapixel wide-angle, a 5-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

“It’s a camera for all distances, from objects in the foreground to those farther away,” the company said during the presentation.

The company explained that, with this cell phone, it will be possible to capture images “with amazing details” thanks to its improved processing and high dynamic range. In addition, it highlighted night photography, since it incorporates an advanced multi-frame RAW algorithm that allows for sharper and brighter images, as well as the cloning mode.

The terminal also includes 6 different long exposure modes for users to create different compositions developing their creativity. Xiaomi has highlighted that this smartphone is 96% faster when capturing a moment than its competitors.

In the video section, the device includes time-lapse, dual video, long exposure, or telemacro, among other modes.

It incorporates the Snapdragon 732G, a “fast and efficient” processor.

The terminal incorporates as a processor the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G and is mounted on MIUI 12, based on Android 11.

As Xiaomi explains this means that the mobile is “faster and more efficient than ever”.

An outstanding battery of more than 5,000 mAh, better than that of the flagship phones.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro includes a 5,020 mAh battery, with 33W fast charging support for USB-C charger cable, which is included in the box. This is one of the strengths of the terminal, as it exceeds that present in the flagship Mi 11 (with 4,600 mAh) or that of the Redmi Note 9T (5,000 mAh).

This means more than 12 hours of continuous gaming, more than 23 hours watching videos or more than 50 hours of normal use, according to the manufacturer. In addition, in just 30 minutes 59% of the battery is charged through fast charging.

Xiaomi has explained that this capability offers users the peace of mind of not worrying about the possibility of running out quickly with heavy use.

Basic connectivity, but incorporates NFC

In terms of connectivity, the handset supports 2 SIM cards, UFS2.2, includes NFC, as well as dual speakers on the top and bottom that offer “a more immersive sound experience, perfect for streaming content, playing games or listening to music.”

It also features a 3.5mm jack, a feature that is increasingly falling out of use due to the rise of wireless headphones. Xiaomi already explained that “they are aware” of this change and have highlighted their commitment to that segment, especially in their flagship terminals (such as the Mi 10T Pro or the Mi 11), where they have eliminated this port.

And for how much?

Xiaomi has explained that this smartphone will be available in 3 storage versions 6 64GB, 6 128GB, and 8 128GB.

The terminal will go on sale in Spain from $ 279, $ 299, and $ 329, respectively, in the main points of sale of the manufacturer, although no date has not yet been detailed.

In addition, the company has advanced that it will be marketed on AliExpress on March 8 and 9 for $249, $269 and $299 as a launch offer, respectively.
