Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series is popular both in its home country and global markets like India. However, the company is yet to launch a Note device in China after the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Recent rumors and leaks point that the next series could be under the Redmi Note 10 moniker. And before Xiaomi unwraps it officially, let’s take a look at what we know so far.
Jumping right in, the Redmi Note 10 series is expected to come in three models- M2007J17C, M2007J22C, M2010J19SC. The first two are 5G devices while the last one is 4G as per certifications. Now, if we were to guess, Xiaomi should name the first one as Redmi Note 10 Pro Max considering it will likely hold a huge 108MP camera. However, the rest of the two could be Redmi Note 10 Pro, and Redmi Note 10 4G. Of course, these are our speculative names going by the past, and Xiaomi could change it before launch
Redmi Note 10 series – The basics
As is the case with every Note series, we can expect features like an LCD display with Gorilla Glass protection on the Note 10 series. Also, it is likely to hop on the high-refresh train with 120Hz displays. In terms of design, we can expect punch-hole displays at the front, and a circular camera layout at the back. For ports, 3.5mm jack, USB-C, microSD slot, Dual-SIM could be obvious inclusions.
We can also expect other features like IR blaster, P2i coating against water splashes, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth, GPS, BeiDou, SA/NSA 5G(on two models),4G, bigger battery with fast charging. For memory and storage, we can expect 6/8GB RAM and 64/128GB storage. However, a 256GB variant could also surprise us. All the devices are likely to run MIUI 12 based on Android 10 out of the box.
M2007J17C(Possibly Redmi Note 10 Pro Max)
Talking about the device, it is rumored to be a tweaked version of Xiaomi’s Mi 10T Lite 5G from Europe. To affirm this, both the devices have the same model numbers(M2007J17C, M2007J17C) as well. Here “G” generally represents the Global variant(which is the Mi 10T Lite 5G), and “C” Chinese variant. If true, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max could feature a 6.67-inch FHD+ LCD 120Hz display with a centered punch-hole.
The design will be a lot similar to the Poco X3 from Global Markets. Under the hood, it will likely sport the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G(sm7225) SoC. Other specifications leaked so far say the device could have a rear 108MP camera sensor which is said to be the ISOCELL HM2 image sensor with 0.7μm pixels. And a sensor size of 1/1.52-inches. Other features sensors are likely a Telephoto & Macro lens.
This is will make it the first Redmi device to sport a 108MP sensor. The device is expected to have a 4,800mAh battery with 33W fast charging.

M2007J22C (Possibly Redmi Note 10 Pro)
As per an earlier leak, the device could have a display with a punch-hole at the top left. However, the rear design is out of the leak radar so far. However, a close-up of the rear camera layout shows a Grey color panel. And 48MP primary sensor onboard a similar setup as the above.
Under the hood, the device is said to sport MediaTek’s Dimesnity SoCs. However, the leaks have been inconsistent with few suggesting a Dimensity 820 SoC, while the others pointing to a Dimensity 720 or 800U with a clock speed of 2.4GHz. Also, a listing on China’s 3C certification suggests that the device will come with a 22.5W fast charging.
M2010J19C (Possibly Redmi Note 10 4G)
While Xiaomi promised that it would launch more 5G devices in 2020, leaks show that Redmi Note 10 series could have a 4G variant. Although, a smartphone with a similar model number (M2010J19CG) is said to debut under POCO elsewhere, looks like it’s heading to China as well. Sadly, other than the model number, no concrete info is available about this device. A recent listing on China’s 3C certification also shows the device will support 22.5W fast charging.
Redmi Note 10 Expected Launch date, Price
The launch date of the device isn’t really known yet. However, we can expect them to debut sometime before the end of 2020. For the price, Xiaomi is expected to launch a 999 yuan (~$150) 5G device towards the end of 2020. And it could very well be a Note 10 series device.
