Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi announced the Redmi Note 10 5G back in March, and later in May, another sub-brand, Poco, introduced the Poco M3 Pro 5G, which is just a rebranded Redmi Note 10 5G with a different design. Then in June, we got the Redmi Note 10T 5G, which is a rebadged Note 10 5G carrying a “T” in the moniker.
The Poco M3 Pro 5G arrived in India earlier last month, and today, the Redmi Note 10T 5G made its debut in the Asian country. One might wonder what could’ve been the rationale behind launching the same phone in the same market with the same memory options at the same price.
Both the Poco M3 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 10T 5G come in 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB memory configurations priced at INR13,999 ($185/€160) and INR15,999 ($215/€180), respectively. But, the sales channels are different, likely to target different demographics.
The Poco M3 Pro 5G is exclusively sold through Flipkart in India, while the Redmi Note 10 5G will be available through Mi Home, Mi Stores, and retail partners in addition to Mi.com and Amazon.in. You can buy one in Chromium White, Graphite Black, Metallic Blue, or Mint Green color starting July 26.

It comes with a side-mounted fingerprint reader for biometric authentication, and fueling the entire package is a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging support. Although the adapter that comes bundled with the smartphone can go up to 22.5W.
