You don’t think you have seen the last one of the Redmi Note 10 series, do you? This is the new model: Redmi Note 10 JE, which stands for “Japan Version”. This is the first Xiaomi phone equipped with the Snapdragon 480 chipset sold through the cellular operator au.
Note 10 series uses multiple chipsets: Snapdragon (700 and 600 series), Density chips (1100 and 700), Helio G95. Compared with the typical chipset used in this series, the Snapdragon 480 ranks higher in the food chain. But it has 5G and a moderate price tag, which seems to be the point.
JE models also have important local features, such as compatibility with the popular Japanese mobile payment system FeliCa / OsaifuKeitai, which is also the first dust collection system in the series. Adequate waterproof rating, IP68 rating.
Redmi Note 10 JE is the first in the IP68 dust-proof and moisture-proof series.
This is a single SIM phone with a proper 5G frequency band and VoLTE support. There is a MicroSD slot that can expand the internal memory to 64 GB, and the main memory is set to 4 GB. The phone runs MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11.
Otherwise, if there is a typical Redmi Note 10, then JE is a very typical model. It is similar to 10T 5G, with a 6.5-inch LCD screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate and 48 + 2 + 2 MP resolution. The rear three-camera video recording is limited to 1080p / 30fps, which is also applicable to 8MP selfie cameras. The
4800 mAh battery only charges slowly at 18 W (some sister models support 33 W). In addition to the USBC interface, there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack that has passed the HiRes audio certification. Finally, there is an infrared transmitter on the top.
Redmi Note 10 JE is equipped with a 4800mAh battery (18W charging power) and a 90Hz display.
If you are looking for an affordable 5G phone for use in Japan, Redmi Note 10 JE will be available on August 13. More information can be found on the mobile network provider’s website, and you can also find it on UQ Mobile. It is not clear whether this (or a similar model with a Snapdragon 480 drive) will be released outside of Japan.
