During this year, Xiaomi has been announcing several models of the Redmi Note 10 range. There are currently two devices for sale. On the one hand, the Redmi Note 10, which can be purchased for an approximate price of 200 euros. On the other, the Redmi Note 10 Pro, with more powerful specifications and a price of 250 euros. This duo is missing a third member, a cheaper model than the Redmi Note 10. Will there be a Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Lite this year? We check the possibilities.
If we take a look at the Redmi Note 9 range, which was launched in 2020, we can see that there is no Lite model. Therefore, and like previous years, we do not expect to see a Redmi Note 10 Lite this 2021. The company could announce a Redmi Note 10S or a different version to the Redmi Note 10, but it seems that the Redmi Note 10 will be the most economical model of the family. In addition, there are no rumors or leaks that suggest the announcement of a model with more basic features and a reduced price.
Of course, although in principle no Redmi Note 10 Lite is expected, it would not be strange to see a cheaper version of the Redmi Note 10. Perhaps with another name. The Chinese company usually announces devices practically every month. So that cheap version of the Redmi Note 10 may not be in the Redmi Note family, but it is in the Redmi 10 range.
What Lite models can we find in Xiaomi?
Xiaomi Mi 10T LIte with quad camera and other features similar to the Redmi Note 10.
Where we do see Lite versions in Xiaomi terminals, it is in the Mi brand. A clear example is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G, announced at the beginning of the year and which has a very thin design, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G processor with 5G connectivity and a 6.55-inch AMOLED screen. All this at a price of 400 euros. Comparing it to the Redmi Note 10, the price of the Mi 11 Lite is very high. However, it has more powerful features. His older brother, the Xiaomi Mi 11, is priced at 750 euros, but has the characteristics of a high-end mobile.
Another Lite model that we find in the Xiaomi catalog is the Mi 10T Lite, which is priced at 250 euros, similar to the Redmi note 10. In addition, it has very similar features: 64 megapixel camera, AMOLED screen, Qualcomm processor and the latest version of MIUI.
This 2021 we could see a Xiaomi Mi 11T Lite, with lower benefits than the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite and a cheaper price. The terminal could be announced during the second half of the year.
Alternatives to Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Lite
A very interesting alternative to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Lite is the Xiaomi Redmi 9T. It has a price of 180 euros. That is, it is 20 euros cheaper than the Redmi Note 10. In addition, it includes very interesting features. Among them, a gigantic 6000 mA battery, 6.53-inch screen with Full HD resolution, Snapdragon 662 processor and 48 megapixel camera.
