Redmi Note 10S could be launched in India
The Redmi Note 10S is essentially a beefed-up version of the standard Redmi Note 10. Instead of the Snapdragon 678 chip, the Redmi Note 10S uses a MediaTek Helio G95 chip. It’s the same chip we’ve seen on phones like the Realme 7 and Realme Narzo 20 Pro before. Redmi is hinting that the phone will launch the MIUI 12.5 update in India, possibly based on Android 11.

The global variant of the Redmi Note 10S features a 6.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a standard 60Hz refresh rate. The phone will feature a dual stereo speaker with Hi-Res audio certification. It has a 5000mAh battery with support for a 33W fast charging solution. Users can choose up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The camera setup on the Redmi Note 10S includes a 64-megapixel main camera sensor paired with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera. There are two 2-megapixel cameras for macro and depth detection. The front camera has a 13 megapixel sensor.
Expected prices in India
The Redmi Note 10S is expected to launch in India with a slightly higher price than the vanilla Redmi Note 10. Therefore, prices could start from Rs 13,000 for the base variant and help Xiaomi close the gap between the Redmi Note 10 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro. Xiaomi recently increased the prices of the Redmi Note 10 series by Rs 500 without any official announcement.
