Rumoured Redmi Note 10 spotted on TENAA.
Now an un-named Redmi 5G phone has appeared on TENAA with the model number M2004J7AC & this phone could very well be powered by the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity chipset. Though according to a Xiaomishka on twitter, this alleged Redmi phone is the Redmi Note 10 which has previously appeared on 3C mobile verification as well some time back.

Now coming back to the TENAA listing, the design of Note 10 is similar to the Redmi Note 9 series, though there’s one major design change. As the device has a U-shaped notch in the front instead of a punch-hole that we saw on Note 9 series though the rear design remains changed, Quad rear camera setup in a square camera module.
There’s an in-display fingerprint sensor, the front camera inside the notch, a coloured power button on the right, volume rockers on the right.
Well, TENAA listing does not mention what display does the Note 10 has and as with most guesses, it must be LCD right?, no it’s “NOT”. As per Digital Chat Station, who is a very reliable Weibo source, Note 10 has an OLED panel, Yeah. So this device will the first Note series device to feature an OLED panel, which is great.
As for the specifications, the handset has a 6.57-inch FullHD+ AMOLED display, a 48MP primary lens, 6/8GB RAM & 64/128/256GB storage, 16MP selfie shooter, 4520mAh battery, 22.5W fast charging support & MiUi 11 on top of Android 10.
According to digital chat station, the SOC that powers this phone is MediaTek Dimensity 820 clocked at 2.6Hz, with that being said, speculation about MediaTek launching a Dimensity 820 might just be true.
Anyway, just a couple days left before we know that so stay tuned.
