Redmi Note 10 Pro ups the ante as one of the highest resolution cameras for smartphones, making it the mid-range king in mobile photography.
The phone’s 108MP sensor with 9-in-1 binning technology and Dual native ISO combines to capture the finest details, provide a higher dynamic range and offer an array of photo editing possibilities. Thanks to the night mode 2.0 powered by RAW multi-frame algorithm, users can capture clear visuals even in low-light settings.

Following a seamless redesign, including an Arc side fingerprint sensor and a 6.67-inch 120Hz AMOLED DotDisplay, the device grants an all-around smooth user experience. Available in two head-turning colours – Onyx Gray and Glacier Blue – Redmi Note 10 Pro is as elegant as it is durable, with its Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front protecting from unsightly scuffs and scratches.
On the performance end, Redmi Note 10 Pro truly packs a punch with one of the most powerful 4G processors on the market, Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. Thanks to the 5,020mAh (typ) battery and advanced 33W fast charging, your time spent powering up will be kept to a minimum.
