Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is one of the most popular brands in the Indian smartphone market. Despite recent dips in market share, the company still leads the Indian smartphone industry with a 20 per cent share. There’s a good reason for this too, with Xiaomi releasing multiple phones in various budget segments. Moreover, at the lower end of the budget spectrum, numerous Xiaomi phones attract customers thanks to their low prices and decent features. This article will take a look at new Xiaomi phones that have recently graced the smartphone industry. So, without any further ado, let’s get started and check out the phones!
Xiaomi 12 Pro
Xiaomi isn’t known for its hold on the premium segment. However, new Xiaomi phones, such as the Xiaomi 12 Pro, make a good case. With top-notch features, like the quad-speaker setup and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, this phone is clearly competing for consistency at the premium end. Moreover, with such a polished and sleek look, Xiaomi has ensured that the phone provides a premium in-hand feel. Overall, it’s an excellent flagship-level phone from the Chinese manufacturers. If you’re a long-term fan of Xiaomi, this is definitely a phone you should consider.
Xiaomi Redmi K50i
Out of all the new Xiaomi phones, the Redmi K50i is truly meant for gaming enthusiasts. Powered by a beastly Mediatek Dimensity 8100 chipset and sporting a 144Hz refresh rate, the phone provides exceptional performance under the INR 30,000 price range. To make the deal sweeter, OS optimisations have ensured that the 5080 mAh battery can easily last a day, even if you’re gaming consistently at the maximum refresh rate. It’s a powerful phone and provides good value for money if you’re into mobile gaming. For a basic user, the phone will more than exceed your expectations!
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G
Among new Xiaomi phones, the Redmi Note series has always been the perfect combination of features and pricing. With the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G, things are slightly different. The phone is priced higher than previous Redmi Note phones, but justifies its pricing with a 120Hz FHD+ display, Snapdragon 695 SoC, and a 5000 mAh battery. In other words, it’s perfectly capable of handling everyday tasks with bouts of heavy gaming in between. If you’re looking for a value for money Xiaomi phone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G is a viable contender.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro
Moving on from the Plus version of the phone, we now take a look at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro. It shares its dual-glass design with the other phones in the Redmi lineup, and it also brings a new 67W charging feature. Apart from this, the phone includes fan-favourite elements such as stereo speakers, NFC, and an increasingly rare 3.5mm headphone jack. The Redmi Note 11 Pro is equipped with a 120Hz Super AMOLED screen, a MediaTek Helio G96 processor, and a standard 5000 mAh battery. Moreover, if you’re looking for a mid-range phone that can cover all the basics well, with a few compromises on gaming, the Redmi Note 11 Pro is a decent choice.
Xiaomi Redmi 10 Power
If battery backup is an essential feature for you in a smartphone, then allow us to introduce the Xiaomi Redmi 10 Power. This new Xiaomi phone comes with a massive 6000 mAh battery to help you power through busy days. Additionally, it’s powered by a Snapdragon 680 SoC and a dual camera setup at the back. While it skimps on features such as high refresh rate and 5G connectivity, its features are decent for users who prefer longer battery life and basic functionality. Overall, this is a decent phone if you’re not into intensive tasks such as gaming or other forms of power usage.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 SE
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 is one of the more popular phones from the Chinese brand. With the Redmi Note 11 SE, there are subtle design changes that give the phone’s exterior a more attractive look. Other than this, the phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G95 chipset and comes with 6GB of RAM. The Super AMOLED panel also provides a 409 ppi density and a 90Hz refresh rate. A triple camera system at the back, with a 64MP primary sensor, does a good job of capturing moments with decent colour reproduction. Overall, the Redmi Note 11 SE provides a few good features to mark itself apart from the rest of the competition in the lower budget spectrum.
Xiaomi Redmi 10
Next on our list of the new Xiaomi phones is the Xiaomi Redmi 10. Although it’s part of the vanilla Redmi range, it provides a few features that help it stand out from the crowd. A MediaTek Helio G88 processor powers the phone, and this is accompanied by a 5000 mAh battery that supports fast charging up to 18W. Moreover, with a 90Hz 6.5-inch LCD panel, you’re getting premium features at a cut price. Ultimately, the Xiaomi Redmi 10 offers solid performance, decent battery life, above average camera performance, and even stereo speakers. If you’re on a shoestring budget but want a phone with decent features and a premium design, the Redmi 10 is a great choice!
Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime
The Xiaomi Redmi 10 Prime is the successor to the immensely popular Redmi 9 Prime, and is equipped with superior hardware. However, this better hardware also commands a higher price. Powered by the MediaTek Helio G88 processor and sporting a 6000mAh battery, this phone does have its moments and fans. While the performance, display quality (with 90Hz refresh rate), and battery are great, we weren’t fans of the camera performance and the host of bloatware which came preinstalled. Nonetheless, if you want a budget entry in the new Xiaomi phones, the Redmi 10 Prime isn’t a bad option!
Xiaomi Redmi 10A Sport
Another budget entry among the new Xiaomi phones, the Redmi 10A Sport seems like a reasonably rudimentary device at first. Regardless, it has some worthwhile specifications, such as the 5000 mAh battery, the MediaTek G25 processor, and the 6GB RAM. However, you’ll have to compromise with the LCD panel and the slower power adapter of 10W. If you want an entry-level phone that performs the basics well, the Redmi 10A Sport is a viable candidate. However, we wouldn’t recommend any intensive tasks on this phone.
Xiaomi Redmi 10A
The Redmi 10A series wasn’t the best series that Xiaomi produced. Nonetheless, the Redmi 10A does have its fans. While the Redmi 10A Sport supports a higher amount of RAM, there’s not much difference between it and the Redmi 10A. The LCD panel and MediaTek G25 processors remain common, while the Redmi 10A only sports 3GB of RAM. Needless to say, considering the device’s specifications, the Redmi 10A is meant for convenience and beginner users. For the absolute fundamentals and a low price, the Redmi 10A can be a decent choice.
