A 108-megapixel camera on a Redmi Note? What about a 120 Hz AMOLED display? Sure, why not, Xiaomi responded, and the Redmi Note 10 Pro was born. That’s an obvious oversimplification (and there’s a “hold my drink” joke in there someplace we won’t make), but we’d be negligent if we didn’t note this phone’s two primary distinguishing characteristics right away.
Otherwise, it’s a collection of minor enhancements over its direct predecessor, the Redmi Note 9 Pro, all of which are appreciated, but the camera bump (pun absolutely intended) serves two functions. For starters, people prefer big numbers on spec sheets, and this one is as big as it gets for the time being. Second, the inclusion of such a large main sensor in this smartphone is likely intended to indicate that Redmi is finally taking camera image quality more seriously than before. In our opinion, this is a positive development.
