Further, the company has posted more teasers which give us confirmation. To start off, the device will sport an AMOLED display, and as per the previous leak, it will be a 6.57-inch Full HD+ panel with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. The cherry on top here is the always-on display with some customization options like the ability to add an image and a text. 

As far as the camera is concerned, the Redmi 10X will pack in a quad-rear camera, the set-up which looks similar to the Redmi 9 Pro (opens in new tab) series. The camera is said to feature optical image stabilization and up to 30x zoom. Redmi also teased a new camera mode called “neon night screen mode” which looks quite similar to the long exposure shots. Also, the device is expected to come with some sort of water resistance protection, as the company also marketed it as an action camera. 

Apart from the above-mentioned specifications, there are a few more that have emerged over the past few weeks. The Redmi 10X is expected to come with 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage. It is also rumoured to pack in a 4,400 mAh battery. As far as the colours are concerned the device will most likely come with four options - Gold, Blue, Silver, and Purple.
