Additionally, Xiaomiui revealed the upcoming phone would come with 22.5W fast charging support and a quad-camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary sensor.

Currently, Xiaomi is offering the Note 10-series. It comprises Note 10, Note 10 Pro, Note 10 Pro Max, and Note 10S. Prices for the series start at 12,499.

In case you don't remember, Redmi Note 8 was one of the best selling phones for Xiaomi. According to a May 2020 report, Xiaomi reported selling 30 million units of its Note 8 lineup. Its variants, Redmi Note 8T and Redmi Note 8 Pro, had also made it to the top 10 selling phones in the fourth quarter of 2019.
