The Redmi Note line has solidified itself as arguably Xiaomi’s key range. Starting its tenth edition are three phones – the Note 10, Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max, which just debuted in India. Powered by the Snapdragon 732G and a 108MP main camera the Note 10 Pro Max is the leader of the pack. The regular Note 10 Pro offers the same chipset and 64MP main shooter while the vanilla Note 10 comes with the SD 678 and a 48MP camera. All three handsets come with Super AMOLED displays which is a first for the Redmi Note lineup.
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max
Kicking things off is the first Redmi Note with a 120Hz Super AMOLED screen – the Note 10 Pro Max. It comes with a 6.67-inch FHD+ panel with a 16MP camera housed in a tiny (2.96mm) punch-hole cutout. The display also supports HDR 10 and up to 1,200 nits of peak brightness and is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
Around the back we find Samsung’s 108MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor inside the main shooter. It comes in at 1/1.52″ in size with 0.7 μm pixels and Super-PD autofocus. The default mode uses a 9-1 binning process effectively outputting 12MP shots. There’s also an 8MP ultrawide snapper, 5MP tele-macro cam with 2x zoom and a 2MP depth sensor.
The Snapdragon 732G sits under the hood with 6/8GB RAM and up to 128GB storage which is still expandable via microSD. On the software front we have Android 11 based on MIUI 12. The phone also comes with an IR blaster, headphone jack, dual stereo speakers and an IP52 rating. The battery comes in at 5,020 mAh and gets 33W charging capabilities.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max starts at INR 18,999 ($261) for the 6/64GB trim. There’s a 6/128GB variant for 19,999 ($275) while the 8/128GB model will retail for 21,999 ($302). It’s available in Dark Night, Glacial Blue and Vintage Bronze colors.
Firsts sales in India are scheduled for March 18 from mi.com, Amazon India while the rest of Xiaomi’s retail partners will bring the phone at a later date.

The camera setup includes a 48MP Sony IMX582 main shooter alongside an 8MP ultrawide module and two 2MP sensors for macro shots and depth data. The selfie cam comes in at 13MP. Battery-wise we get a 5,000 mAh cell that does 33W fast charging like the Pro siblings and the software side is covered again by MIUI 12 on top of Android 11.
