Xiaomi has 13 phones named Redmi Note 11 and it needs to do something about it. Yet we are not sure, what the manufacturer did last month in Japan is a step forward. The company launched the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10T with 5G capabilities for the Japanese market, which is the 10th member of the previous series.
Yes, it is an entirely different phone from the already known Redmi Note 10T 5G launched in Summer ‘21.
This new handset comes with a Snapdragon 480 chipset and a dual-camera setup.
The front of the phone is a 6.5” LCD with 1080p resolution and a punch hole for the 8 MP selfie camera. It supports up to 90 Hz refresh rate and offers 4,096 levels of brightness.
The main camera setup on the back has a 50MP main shooter, assisted by a 2MP secondary cam for portrait shots. There is also a dual-colored dual-LED flash.
The chipset has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage to keep it company, while the battery is 5,000 mAh with 18W fast charging. Xiaomi is offering the phone with a micro SD slot, and it also supports eSIM, which is rather unusual for a cheap device by the maker and is likely to remain a market-specific feature.
Other cool features include a 3.5 mm audio jack, NFC support for local banks and MIUI 13, although it is on top of Android 11.
Xiaomi is selling this Japanese edition of the Redmi Note 10T in Gray, Dark Blue, and Aqua Blue colors. It costs JPY34,800 ($270/€255) but consumers in the Asian country can get it for a fraction of the price with a contract from SoftBank.
