Redmi Note 10 Pro: This smartphone is definitely one of the most popular smartphones of 2021. It had Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, for a premium in hand feel, it had IP53 splash proof certification, and came with the powerful Snpadragon 732G Chipset from Qualcomm. the 732G is an improved version of the 720G which was an improvement over the 730G.
The key highlight of this smartphone of course is surprisingly not the chipset but the display. It ships with a 6.67 Inch 120Hz Full HD+ 1080P Super AMOLED Display! It has decent brightness (pretty bright actually, at peak 1200 Nits), HDR10 certification and 395 Pixels Per Inch for great multimedia and amazing content consumption experience.
It has a fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button along with stereo speakers. The Stereo Separation is decent, the quality of audio is good, and it is plenty loud. This checks all the basic boxes and makes cuts in the right places.
The battery is 5020MAH with a 33W Fast Charger in the box. In some regions, the Pro Model was the last model launched of this phone but in India, there was a ‘Pro Max’ model with a 108MP Camera. The global Pro Model and the Indian Pro Max model is the exact same. The Pro model in India has a 64MP Main Camera instead of 108MP. Otherwise, they are identical spec for spec. The rest of the camera module is filled up with a decently wide good quality 8MP Ultrawide, a 5MP Ok-ish Macro and that rubbish gimmicky 2MP Depth Camera.
This smartphone came with MIUI 12 out of the box (Android 11) out of the box. It is good to see that Xiaomi has started rolling out this update on a few devices. Note that this is the initial launch and it will take time for people to get the update. All users will get the update eventually.
Xiaomi has pushed the MIUI 12.5.4 build to all existing MIUI 12.5 users and it is rolling out in an organized manner to avoid bugs. The update is marked “Stable Beta”, so in a few days, a week or two at most, all users should be able to get the stable & public version.
The size is around 3GB but since size varies, we cannot mention exact size here.
It still brings a few new features and new tools with a some minor UI Improvements and optimizations to enhance the end user experience of MIUI. Refinements and polishes and tweaks were made to give users a more stable MIUI.
