Photo Announcement. Redmi 10A Sport is simply the top budget smartphone

In India, a smartphone called Redmi 10A Sport has appeared on sale. Nothing new. Just a little more marketing confusion. Understanding.

  • The original Redmi 10A was originally announced in China. Several options, the maximum configuration is 6 + 128 GB of memory. Widely sold on AliExpress.
  • Then Redmi 10A appeared in India. True, they were greedy with memory. Maximum 4+64 GB.
  • Later there was a "global" announcement. Up to 4 + 128 GB of memory, plus the rear camera suddenly became double. Officially, it is not delivered to us. Also, it seems, can be found on Ali andin other Chinese stores.

So. Redmi 10A Sport is exactly the same Indian Redmi 10A, but with increased memory up to 6+128 GB. Everything. They just "caught up with China".


The 2020 MediaTek Helio G25 chipset, which for some unknown reason belongs to the gaming line. Eight modest Cortex-A53 cores, about a hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. So-so smartphone for games, frankly.

I already said about memory. 6 GB operational, 128 GB permanent. Plus memory cards are supported.

The screen is modest, with a waterdrop notch. Diagonal6.53 "(103 cm²), resolution 720x1600 (269 ppi). Of course, there is no question of any increased refresh rates.

Here is a completely normal battery, 5000 mAh. Charging is standard, 10 W.

Single chambers. 5 MP front and 13 MP rear.

There is a fingerprint scanner, located at the back.

From the sad - single-band Wi-Fi and ancient Micro-USB. For good, both of them are long overdue to go to the dustbin of history. There is no NFC module.

The price is moderately humane. ₹10999 (₽8070, $138) at launch.
