Xiaomi Redmi 10 the 90 Hz and 50 megapixel cameras can also cost little money

Xiaomi has just made the Xiaomi Redmi 10 official, its new affordable mid-range device. It is the successor to the Xiaomi Redmi 9, a device that bet everything on the price and now goes up a level with a 90 Hz screen, more memory and storage, and higher resolution cameras.

At the moment, Xiaomi has not announced its official price in euros. However, in the statement, the company has stated that the terminal can be purchased from August 20 in different versions whose prices start at $179, just over 150 euros at the current exchange rate. We will update this information when we know the official price in Spain.

We start talking about the design and the screen. the Xiaomi Redmi 10 has a relatively simple back. There are no great frills beyond the model with a holographic finish and the huge camera module that we find in the upper left corner. The device weighs 181 grams, is 8.92 mm thick (on average), and, as an interesting aspect, it retains the infrared sensor and the headphone jack.

If we take a look at the screen, we will see a 6.5-inch panel (slightly smaller than the previous generation) with FullHD+ resolution (2,400 x 1,080 pixels). So far nothing new, except for the refresh rate, which is now 90 Hz. It is not something new in the world of smartphones, but it is interesting in terminals of this price range.

The screen doesn’t run at 90Hz all the time, instead, it features AdaptiveSync. The screen is capable of adapting its refresh rate between 45, 60, and 90 Hz depending on the content. This is designed to save battery by not having the screen at full capacity all the time.

If we open the hood we will see a MediaTek Helio G88 processor, one of the most recent from MediaTek. It was launched last July and is manufactured in 12 nanometers. Its GPU is the Mali-G52 and it is accompanied by 4 or 6 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64 or 128 GB of eMMC internal storage. They are relatively basic components.

All of them are given life by a huge 5,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging (22.5W charger included in the box) which also has 9W reverse wired charging (to charge headphones with the mobile battery, for example). The operating system is MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11, so no surprises in this regard.

Finally, in terms of cameras, the Xiaomi Redmi 10 is the first Redmi to have a 50-megapixel camera. In terms of resolution, it’s a substantial improvement over the previous generation, whose main sensor was 13-megapixel. Next to it is a wide angle, a macro sensor, and a depth sensor. The front camera, hidden in the hole in the screen, stays at eight megapixels.
