Xiaomi brings Redmi 10C to Singapore, because why not?

Xiaomi Redmi 10C.

Xiaomi today announced the Redmi 10C, adding yet another variant to its existing Redmi 10 series handsets

Nope, it doesn’t matter that Xiaomi already has many options for you in its Redmi Note 10 series, or that it already has the Redmi 10 5G recently announced, or that it actually already moved on to the Redmi Note 11 series. They’re launching the Redmi 10C here, and that’s that.

"Life is meaningless because Xiaomi didn't launch another phone today," said no one.

Redmi 10C uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset to power all its functionalities. The phone touts a massive 6.71-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution (1,650 x 720 pixels), but the brand didn’t mention the refresh rate or said if it supports HDR content. It’s still protected by a sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 at the front, though.

The rear cameras also cover the basics, with a single 50MP main shooter (f/1.8 aperture, 4-in-1 pixel binning) and a 2MP depth camera to provide a better depth reading. It also has a single 5MP camera on the front for video calls and selfies.

It gets time-tested features from bygone years like a dedicated 3.5mm audio jack as an entry-level phone. It also satisfies folks who require expandable storage via MicroSD card with its dedicated MicroSD plus dual SIM tray. 

Inside sits a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging, while its included charger goes up to 10W. The fingerprint sensor on the Redmi 10C sits on the rear, but you can use its front camera for face recognition unlock. Xiaomi didn’t mention if Redmi 10C had NFC or IP-rated water resistance (we assume it doesn’t, since NFC is region-dependent and left out of the spec sheet). 

There are two configurations available here: 4GB RAM (LPDDR4X) on both variants, but one has 64GB storage (UFS 2.2) while the other has 128GB.

 

Pricing and availability

Xiaomi Redmi 10C's tagline could very well be "Doesn't matter, launch another".

Xiaomi Redmi 10C retails at S$199 (64GB version) and S$229 (128GB version) starting on 2 April 2022, making sure that consumers know that its onslaught of phones isn’t an elaborate April Fool’s joke. You can find it over at Xiaomi’s official sales platforms, like Lazada and Shopee
