Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G is available exclusively through Singtel
Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G in Singapore, but with a little twist on National Day. Before we get into the purchase details, here’s a little more about the handset.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G
The Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G has a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor which gives the phone its 5G network compatibility. This chipset is an entry-level model that also appeared in the Xiaomi Poco M3 Pro 5G and Realme 8 5G. It is also a Redmi device, which Xiaomi usually markets as the low-cost alternative to its flagship Xiaomi series (formerly Xiaomi Mi series).
Therefore, the Redmi 10 5G is aimed at users who care about the most basic needs of a phone, with 5G network compatibility. This also adds to Xiaomi’s confusing and ever-growing list of phones with the words “Redmi” and “10” in them.
The phone comes with a 50MP main camera on the back accompanied by a 2MP depth camera. Inside is a 5,000mAh battery with 18W wired fast charging, and you’re greeted with a flat, 6.58-inch Full HD+ (2,408 x 1,080 pixels resolution) Dot Drop IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate.
Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, Hi-Res Audio certification, Dual SIM and MicroSD support (up to 512GB external storage), a USB-C port, a fingerprint unlock side sensor, Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC. The phone runs on MIUI 13, a Xiaomi reskin of Android 12.
