Xiaomi caused some confusion when it launched the Redmi Note 9 line in China last year. The models from the Asian country arrived months after the family’s debut in the global market and brought about significant changes in the look and in the set of specifications both in relation to the global versions and in comparison with the Indian variants. The Chinese Note 9 4G was basically a renamed Poco M3, while the Note 9 Pro 5G shared the Mi 10T Lite hardware.
The Redmi Note 9 5G was the only one to have original configurations, adopting MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset. Apparently, these changes should happen again with the Redmi Note 10 family, as suggested by the leaker Bald Panda, published in the Chinese social network Weibo.
Redmi Note 10 line may arrive in China with new specifications
While the Redmi Note 10 5G should maintain the settings adopted by the global variant, only increasing the charging speed to 22.5 W, the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G and Note 10 Pro + 5G will have redesigned hardware. Bald Panda suggests that the first of them will adopt the newly launched MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, the Taiwanese manufacturer’s new solution for premium middlemen.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro + 5G would be more inserted in the segment of basic line tops, when adopting MediaTek Dimensity 1100 processor, slightly inferior version of Dimensity 1200, with lower clocks. As in the past year, both end up proving to be more attractive options than their counterparts in the global market.
Dimensity 900 has turbocharged 5G and supports 108 MP cameras
A day after surfacing in rumors, the MediaTek Dimensity 900 was announced to succeed the Dimensity 820 in the premium intermediary market. The new chip promises high performance, with a focus on low energy consumption, bringing Cortex-A78 cores, also present in more premium solutions like the Snapdragon 870 and Dimensity 1200, from MediaTek itself.
Among the highlights of the novelty are promises of speeds of 5G 20% higher than that of competitors, support for 108 MP cameras, recording videos in 4K at 30 FPS with HDR, in addition to improvements in nighttime captures. There is also support for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and the ability to perform real-time upscaling of content from SDR to HDR, and from HDR10 to HDR10 +.
