The company hasn’t confirmed it yet but thanks to the world of leaks, we have some idea about what to expect for Xiaomi’s next budget smartphone. The Redmi 10, as its expected to be called, has visited the FCC certification and revealed some details in the process.

Redmi 10 details leak
The documentation reveals Xiaomi’s MIUI 12.5 running out of the box. However, the most important bit revealed here is the network compatibility. Unlike the upcoming Redmi Note 10T 5G, the Redmi 10 will be a dual SIM 4G LTE smartphone. Sadly, the listing does not reveal the make of the chipset. Hence, it can either be a MediaTek chip or a Snapdragon chip, if Xiaomi decides to spice things up. Also Read - Best laptops under Rs 40,000 in July 2021: Mi Notebook 14, Asus VivoBook 14, and more
In another associated leak from Kacper Skrzypek, it is said that the Redmi 10 will get a MediaTek chipset similar to its predecessor. The phone is also said to feature a 50-megapixel sensor for the main camera. Redmi will use the Samsung JN1 sensor for the primary camera while the 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera will use a Sony IMX355 sensor. A 2-megapixel macro camera is said to accompany these two cameras.
Based on the current Xiaomi lineup, the Redmi 10 could replace the older Redmi 9 Prime in India, if Xiaomi decides to bring it here. The Redmi 9 Prime was launched last year at Rs 10,000 and was one of the most feature-rich smartphones in its class. It was the only phone to get a Full HD+ LCD display and a quad-camera setup.
What remains to be seen is whether Xiaomi gives it the AMOLED treatment that it gave the 4G variants of the Redmi Note 10 series this year.
