Redmi has been bringing budget phones with great features as much as possible. The core vanilla series is the most affordable phone from the brand, and the newly launched Redmi 10 is no different. Hence, the budget smartphone has a starting price of USD 179 and goes up to USD 219. Accordingly, the expected price of Redmi 10 in Nepal is NPR 22,000 for the 4/64 GB model, NPR 23,000 for the 4/128 GB, and NPR 26,000 for the 6/128 GB.

Redmi 10 Overview

Redmi 10 includes some of the major updates coming from Redmi 9 and excels in most of the aspects of the phone.

Design and Build Quality

Redmi 10 has a 90Hz refresh rate for the display; it also has 60Hz and 45Hz, meaning it has an AdaptiveSync refresh rate. It flaunts a 6.5-inches LCD with a resolution of 1080p. On the other hand, the display has protection from Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

A front camera is a punch hole at the top-center of the display, while the rear camera has a quad-camera setup just like the other Redmi 10 Series phones. All the phones from the series follow the “EVOL” design, and so is the case with the Redmi 10.

The smartphone is a plastic build and has three color options: Carbon Gray, Pebble White, and Sea Blue. It weighs 181 grams.

Redmi 10 has a side-mounted fingerprint reader for biometric authentication. It also supports Face unlock via a selfie camera.


Redmi 10 is the first smartphone to have an Helio G88 chipset. The chipset is from MediaTek and is the tweaked version of the Helio G85 to enable a higher refresh rate. Combined with the processor are the storage variants of 4GB/64 GB, 4GB/128 GB, and 6GB/128 GB. The bad news is, the smartphone has no option for expanding its internal storage.

Redmi 10 runs on Android 11 based on MIUI 12.5 out of the box.


Redmi 10 sports a quad-camera that consists of the main camera, an ultra-wide camera, a depth camera, and a macro camera. The primary camera has a 50 MP sensor with an aperture of f/1.8. Likewise, as common with most budget smartphones, the ultra-wide camera has an 8 MP sensor with a field of view of 120-degree. And the remaining cameras have 2 MP sensors each.

The photography features from the rear camera are Portrait, Panorama, Timelapse, Pro Mode, Night Mode, Ultra-wide angle distortion correction, HDR, AI scene detection, etc. The rear camera can record the video in 1080p at 30/60 fps, 720p at 30/120/240/960fps.

The Selfie camera of the Redmi 10 is an 8 MP camera that records the footage in 1080p@30fps.
