Chinese smartphone major Xiaomi is set to launch a new budget handset in China soon. This new phone has appeared on the website of China Telecom-owned retailer Tianyi Telecommunications. The new device is called the Redmi 10X. Along with the detailed specifications of the handset, the website has also posted renders of the phone.
Let us take a closer look at the specifications of the phone first.
The Redmi 10X, as mentioned earlier, is a budget handset that comes powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset. This is perhaps the first handset to come powered by this new chipset from MediaTek, which has not been officially announced by the company as yet. We believe the G85 to be an overclocked version of the existing MediaTek G80 chipset. The latter, as you might be aware, is based on a 12nm manufacturing process and uses twin A75 cores and six A55 cores. The phone also gets the Mali-G52 SoC for graphics.
Other specifications of the Redmi 10X include a quad-camera setup at the rear that consists of a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP secondary ultra-wide-angle camera, and twin 2-megapixel cameras. At the front, the phone features a single 13MP camera. The Redmi 10X also gets a large 6.5-inch TFT-LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. As of now, we know that the handset comes in a single variant that offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There is a good chance that we could see the phone in other storage and RAM combinations.
As far as connectivity goes, the handset supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and LTE networks. Wired connectivity is supported via USB Type-C and as well as a 3.5mm audio jack. The Redmi 10X also features a massive 5020 mAh non-removable battery. There is no word if the handset supports fast charging. Also clear from the listing is the likelihood that the handset will be launched for 1400 Yuan in the Chinese market for the 6GB variant. This translates to around Rs 15,000 here in India.
There is no word as yet of a possible India launch for this device.
