In our previous article, we talked about the Redmi Note 10, which starts at Rs 11,999 only and offers a Super AMOLED panel, Snapdragon 678, 33W fast charging, and more. Along with it, we also got the Redmi Note 10 Pro & Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. Now, except for the primary camera sensor on the rear, everything is the same when we compare the Note 10 Pro with Note 10 Pro Max. There is the same display, the same battery, same charging speed, same processor, and even same storage options.
REDMI NOTE 10 PRO & NOTE 10 PRO MAX – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
While the vanilla Note 10 has a glossy polycarbonate back panel, the Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max feature a premium glass back. And not just a normal glass back, but two color options come with a Matte frosted glass back. The rest of the design is the same as Note 10’s, so there is a rectangular camera module with a Quad Camera setup in it, a USB Type-C port on the bottom, stereo speakers, a display with a single hole-punch cutout in the middle, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
While Redmi Note 10 has a normal 60Hz Super AMOLED panel, Redmi Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max feature 120Hz Super AMOLED panels with 1200 nits of peak brightness and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is crazy to see 120Hz AMOLED at this price, so Redmi has pulled off something we didn’t expect. Under the hood, both phones have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G SOC, which is paired with 6/8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64/128GB UFS 2.2 storage.
Both phones have a 5,020mAh battery and support 33W fast charging. The 33W adapter comes in the box.
The only difference between the Note 10 Pro and Note 10 Pro Max is in terms of the cameras. Note 10 Pro has a 64 Megapixel primary rear camera with Samsung GW3 sensor, paired with an 8 Megapixel ultrawide, a 5 Megapixel Super Tele-macro and a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. The 5 Megapixel Tele-macro lets you go extremely close to the subject, and it is much better than the normal 2 Megapixel macro sensors we get on phones at this price. The primary camera can shoot 4K 30fps videos.
Redmi Note 10 Pro Max takes it one step further by offering a 108 Megapixel Samsung HM2 sensor with 9-in-1 Superpixel tech and f/1.9 aperture lens. The rest of the cameras remain the same as on the Note 10 Pro. Even with such a camera sensor, the video recording is limited to 4K 30fps, so it seems like that’s something related to the SOC.
Both phones feature a 16 Megapixel camera on the front for selfies. MIUI 12, based on Android 11, runs out of the box.
