BGR India cannot verify the authenticity of the leak but it seems believable, given that the launch is just days away.

Redmi Note 10 leak hints at AMOLED display
Xiaomi previously posted a Twitter poll asking people to vote between an AMOLED display and a 120Hz LCD display. The company deleted the post soon after 90 percent of voters chose AMOLED over the LCD option. It now seems that Xiaomi is bringing an AMOLED display to the vanilla Redmi Note 10 this year, even though doubts of cloud lay over the Redmi Note 10 Pro’s choice of display.

The leak also gives us a preview of the Redmi Note 10’s rear design. Xiaomi is bringing some Mi 10T Pro design elements to its Redmi Note series, especially with the camera hump’s design. While the basic layout of the rear is similar to that of the Redmi 9 Power, the quad-camera system is surely arranged cleverly. We can’t seem to figure out the construction of the rear, although a plastic unibody construction seems like an obvious choice after last year’s Redmi Note 9.
The 48-megapixel main camera hints at a retention of the same cameras from the Redmi Note 9. Hence, we could expect to see a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and two 2-megapixel filler cameras.
Despite the presence of an AMOLED display, there are substantial bezels present on the front. The punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera sits in the center. The fingerprint sensor is going to sit on the power key; no in-display solution for the Redmi Note 10 series. Unlike the discontinued and controversial Mi A3, it is nice to see Xiaomi opting for a Full HD AMOLED display instead of a 720p display.
