At the end of the third quarter in 2021, Xiaomi brought the Redmi 10 with a 50MP camera to the Kenyan market. The device has already been updated for 2022 with the introduction of the Redmi 10 2022 which is now available in the Kenyan market.
The prices of the Redmi 10 2022 are as follows:
- 4GB + 64GB at KES 19,499/-
- 4GB + 128GB at KES 21,499/-
- 6GB + 128GB at KES 22,799/-
Xiaomi explains that the Redmi 10 2022 features a powerful chipset and a sleek design offering exceptional performance to more people. The company boasts that the new device raises the bar yet again by offering exceptional performance at a highly affordable price.
For the rear cameras, the device features a 50MP main shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth camera. There’s an 8MP selfie camera.
The phone has a 6.5″ FHD+ display supporting 90Hz refresh rate. It is powered by the Mediatek Helio G88 processor, and a 5000mAh battery which supports 18W fast charging. You get a 22.5W charger in the box.
The phone runs Android 11 with MIUI 12.5. There’s no mention of whether or not the device will receive Android 12, and Android 13 later on this year. This is something Xiaomi has lagged on of late, where instead of sending out System Upgrades to Android versions, they send out MIUI upgrades. You find yourself running MIUI 13, but it’s based on Android 11, and not the latest version. It is a crazy undertaking by Xiaomi, perhaps a means of slowly splitting MIUI from Google’s Android.
The phone also aso features AdaptiveSync technology which lowers power consumption and extends battery life by adjusting the refresh rate based on the content being viewed. There’s Reading Mode 3.0, which effectively reduces eye strain by offering a paper-like quality to your reading experience.
The phone is immediately available in the Kenyan market.
