When the idea of 5G network started floating around some years back, many people did not imagine that this technology would one day be mainstream. Or that it would be with us in just a few years, more so on mobile phones. Of course, there was always the outlook that 5G would trickle down to everyday use but at prohibitive prices which would lock out thousands of users.
That is not necessarily the case anymore though. Xiaomi is about to change that for the better with the launch of the Redmi Note 10 5G which is aptly dubbed the Performance Racer. Other than being the most affordable 5G smartphone in Kenya, the phone promises to come with other modern and powerful features to make it an all together pleasant gadget to use. The launch which is happening on 25th June 11.30am will be streamed live via Xiaomi Kenya Facebook page. Save the date and tune in. There will be mobile phones to be won by listeners and you could just be one of them!
Other than the Redmi Note 10 5G, the company will also launch Redmi Note 10S devices. These are the specific devices that are coming our way in just two days.

With 5G we are looking at very high connection speeds with near zero latency. To understand the impact of this innovation, it is important to imagine the future possibilities that 5G creates. 5G has the potential to match the impact made by the introduction of the internet just a few decades ago. 3G and 4G were implemented to connect people. 5G will connect people to everything. It will go far beyond just increasing the speed of phone searches, to creating new possibilities in numerous sectors including transportation, medicine and manufacturing. One thing is for sure. 5G is massive and it will run the world.
This is technology whose reliability can be counted on to impact every industry and make it better. Innovations around 5G are already enabling transport systems, digitized logistics, virtual healthcare and precision agriculture. These are just a few, with others like smart cities, smart homes through IoT and even smart tourism. Imagine the possibility of smart tourism. If a 5G camera is strapped on an animal in the park for example, it could be able to relay the activities in the park to your phone in the comfort of your home. And this is in HD video.
It is with this in mind that the entry of the Redmi Note 10 5G series is exciting. Affordable phones that put the immense possibilities of 5G in the palms of our hands.
It is a given that a phone running the high speeds of 5G will have a high-performance processor. For this, the Redmi Note 10 5G has the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset which puts the phone is a position to challenge the boundaries of gaming performance. And get this. This beast of a phone will support 5G Dual SIM.
It also has superior power saving features so users can enjoy using it without worrying about the massive 5000mAh battery dying out. In the event that it does die out, the phone has an 18W fast charger so charging to usable level will be in a matter of minutes. I think fast charge is one of the most important things that has happened to the mobile phone industry in recent years.
For photography, users can look forward to a 48MP triple back camera, supported by a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. All these come bundled with a suite of creative tools like slow-Mo video, time-lapse video and night mode. We shall have more of this when we get to use the phone and do a comprehensive review.
In a show of great confidence in the quality of the hardware, Xiaomi is giving 24+1 months warranty on all the gadgets in the Redmi Note 10 Series. This warranty duration according to Ramadhan Hassan of Xiaomi Kenya Marketing is not only a first, but an only one.
Having used the Redmi Note 10 Pro and confidently ticking it as one of the best gadgets I’ve ever used, I’m excited for what is coming on June 25. See you there.
