Redmi 10 Power with Snapdragon 680 launched at ₹14,999
It has 8GB RAM and 128GB storage
April 20, 2022
Alongside the Redmi 10A, which we discussed in our previous article, the company also launched Redmi 10 Power. As the name suggests, this is a successor to the Redmi 9 Power of last year. The ‘Power’ series is known for phones with big batteries, and the latest offering under this series is no exception as it has a 6,000mAh cell. But, the price gets a big increase because while Redmi 9 Power launched at ₹10,999, the Redmi 10 Power is priced at ₹14,999.
The reason? Well, for some reason, Redmi thought to offer this phone in only one storage option, and that too having 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. You might say what is wrong is that. Well, that is one way to justify the price of this phone as no other phone gives you 8GB RAM under ₹15,000 in India. But still, what is the use of 8GB RAM when this phone comes with Snapdragon 680, a chipset for budget phones.
The design is similar to the Redmi 10A, with the only difference being the extra camera sensor on the rear and the leather-like texture. For ₹14,999, this phone has a display with a notch. And if that was not enough, it is a 60Hz 6.7-inch IPS LCD with a 720p resolution. Yes, we are not kidding. For ₹14,999, these are the display specs of this phone. The SOC, as mentioned above, is Snapdragon 680. Interestingly, Redmi 10 2022, which is priced at ₹10,999, has the same SOC, and it launched just a month ago.
The camera setup on the back includes a primary 50MP sensor with an f/1.8 lens and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, there is a 5MP camera. The battery size is 6,000mAh, and there is an 18W fast charging support (10W adapter in the box). MIUI 13 runs out of the box with Android 11 on top. There is a Type-C port on the bottom, a single speaker, a triple card slot, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the front.
Redmi 10 Power comes in two colors named Sporty Orange and Power Black. It is priced at ₹14,999, and you get 8GB RAM with 128GB storage. It is not yet official when the phone will go on sale, but as we said in our previous article on the Redmi 10A, you should avoid the Redmi 10 Power if you want a phone priced around ₹14,999.
