The latest addition to the Redmi Note 10 family from Xiaomi has a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with FHD + resolution, a 180 Hz touch sampling rate and a centered hole-punch cutout for the 13-megapixel selfie camera . The phone is powered by the gaming-focused Helio G95 processor from MediaTek with an ARM Mali-G76 MC4 GPU and 6 GB LPDDR4X RAM.
On the back of the Redmi Note 10S is a quad camera setup with a 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Just like the more expensive Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, the phone also supports 4K video recording. Other important features of the Redmi Note 10S are a 5,000 mAh battery with 33 W fast charge, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, two speakers, a built-in IR blaster and splash resistance according to IP53.

In addition to the Redmi Note 10S, Xiaomi has also launched the Redmi Watch in India. The smartwatch has a 1.4-inch display with a resolution of 320 x 320 and more than 200 watch faces. It offers a total of 11 sport modes, continuous heart rate monitoring and 5 water resistances at the ATM. Redmi claims that the smartwatch can last up to 10 days on a single charge and it takes less than 2 hours to fully charge.
The Redmi Watch was priced at just £ 3,999 ($ 54) in India, which makes it much cheaper than the best Android smartwatches. It’s slated to be available in Mi.com, Flipkart and Mi Home stores across the country from May 25th.
