About six months ago, Redmi announced its Redmi Note 9 series in India and followed it up with a global launch. The company had to leave out its homeland due to the COVID-19 crisis that was ravaging the country during the two first quarters of 2020. With the situation getting established in China, Xiaomi’s band moved on with the release of the Note 9 series there, but the devices weren’t the same as the ones released earlier this year. Yesterday, The company finally announced the Redmi Note 9 5G, Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, and Redmi Note 9 4G.
None of these devices is close to the ones released in global markets. While the 5G on the name is a strong hint of the differences, the Chinese devices also bring other compelling specs. For instance, we have a 120Hz display, 108MP camera in the higher version.
For now, we don’t know if these devices will make way to the global markets, but if they do, there’s a strong reasons to believe that they will be rebranded to Redmi Note 10 series.
Redmi Note 9 4G, Note 10 4G or POCO M3?
A new Redmi smartphone bearing model number M2010J19SG model number appeared on IMDA certification. For comparison, the model number is very close to the Redmi Note 9 4G released yesterday in China. It bears model number M2010J19SC. While the certification does not bring the marketing name of the handset, rumors are pointing that it could launch as Redmi Note 10 4G in global markets.
Of course, the launch date for this new Redmi smartphone remains a mystery. Worth noting that the recently released POCO M3 also has a similar model number. Both the Note 9 4G and M3 are very close in specifications but have a different design. We won’t be surprised to see two devices, Redmi Note 10 and POCO M3 being sold in International markets with the very same set of specifications.
Redmi Note 4G Specifications
Taking in consideration everything the Redmi Note 9 4G offers, we can an idea of what a possible, rebranded, Redmi Note 10 4G will bring. First of all, we have a 6.53-inch Full HD+ Display with a waterdrop notch design. Under the hood, the phone may pack the Snapdragon 662 Octa-Core clocked at 2.0GHz.It’s paired with the Adreno 610 GPU. We expect variants with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of Internal Storage. The POCO M3 does not have a variant with 6GB of RAM.
The phone will pack a 6,000mAh battery just like the POCO M3 and Redmi Note 9 4G. It will charge via a USB-C port with 22.5W fast-charging support. The camera setup may consist of an 8MP selfie shooter and a Triple-Camera array in the back. It will have a 48MP primary shooter coupled with two 2MP sensors.
