Redmi 10X series has been unveiled as Xiaomi's latest range of mid-range smartphones. The new series include the Redmi 10X, Redmi 10X 5G, and Redmi 10X Pro as the three distinct models.

The Redmi 10X Pro 5G is designed as the top-of-the-line model with a quad rear camera setup, while the Redmi 10X 5G comes with a triple rear camera setup. The Redmi 10X, on the other hand, appears to be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 that was launched at a global event in late April.
