Xiaomi has launched a new version of the Redmi Note 10T 5G in Japan.

We’re not sure if it’s a chip shortage issue or if Xiaomi just wants to reinvigorate the device for the new market. Still, the new Redmi Note 10T lands in Japan with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processor, versus last year’s MediaTek Dimensity 700 that came out in India.


This new chip still has 5G connectivity. The built-in modem offers up to 2.5Gbps of download and up to 660Mbps upload speeds.

Other than that, everything else is the same. There’s still a decent 6.5-inch IPS screen with FHD+ resolution and a smooth 90Hz refresh rate.


There’s a punch-hole in the middle for the selfie snapper, while on the back we have two shooters consisting of a sharp 50-megapixel camera and the obligatory 2-megapixel depth sensor.

Like last year’s model, it still doesn’t have a stereo speaker setup. On the upside, it has the standard-issue IR blaster if you want to control non-smart appliances.


Like a lot of phones in its class, the new Note 10T comes with a 5,000mAh battery, 18W fast charging, and runs on Android 11-based MIUI 13 software. Being a new device, it should get the latest Android 12 update in the coming months.

As for the design, well, it’s still the same. Plus, it boasts an IP68 rating for being water and dust resistant for some robust protection.


The Redmi Note 10T is available in Japan for a price of JPY34,800 (around Php14,200). No word yet if it’s coming to the Philippines. In the meantime, you can check the brand’s other offerings here.
