Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G in Singapore, but with a little National Day twist. Before we get into the purchase details, here’s a little more about the handset.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G
The Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G packs a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor that gives the phone its 5G network compatibility. This chipset is an entry-level model that also appeared in the Xiaomi Poco M3 Pro 5G and Realme 8 5G. Also, it’s a Redmi device, which Xiaomi typically markets as the low-cost alternative to its flagship Xiaomi series (formerly Xiaomi Mi series).
Hence, the Redmi 10 5G is for users who care about the most basic necessities of a phone, with 5G network compatibility. This also adds to Xiaomi’s confusing and ever-growing list of phones that has the words “Redmi” and “10” in it.
The phone comes with a 50MP main camera on the rear, accompanied by a 2MP depth camera. Inside is a 5,000mAh battery with 18W wired fast-charging, and you’re greeted with a flat, 6.58-inch Full HD+ (2,408 x 1,080 pixels resolution) Dot Drop IPS LCD panel that has 90Hz refresh rate.
Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, Hi-Res Audio certification, support for Dual SIM and MicroSD (up to 512GB external storage), a USB-C port, a side sensor for fingerprint unlocking, Bluetooth 5.1, and NFC. The phone runs on MIUI 13, which is a Xiaomi reskin of Android 12.
Pricing, availability, promotion
The Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G officially retails at S$299 (128GB storage+ 6GB RAM) exclusively via Singtel. However, both Xiaomi and Singtel have National Day promotions for the handset. They are:
- S$269 for a no-contract Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G (S$30 off RRP)
- S$242 if purchasing the phone with SIM Only plan (S$57 off)
- Between 6 to 9 August 2022, loyal Singtel customers will receive a special SMS and will be invited to select Singtel Shops and Exclusive Retailers to purchase a Xiaomi Redmi 10 5G at S$57. These customers will need to show the SMS to purchase the device at that price.
