The Xiaomi Redmi sub-brand announced the Redmi Note 10 5G in March, and later in May, another sub-brand, Poco, introduced the Poco M3 Pro 5G, which is just a renowned Redmi Note 10 5G with a different design. Then in June we had the Redmi Note 10T 5G, which is a rebadged Note 10 5G with a “T” in the nickname.
The Poco M3 Pro 5G arrived in India early last month, and today the Redmi Note 10T 5G debuted in the Asian country. One wonders what could have been the reason for launching the same phone in the same market with the same memory options at the same price.
The Poco M3 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 10T 5G are available in 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB memory configurations priced at INR 13,999 ($185/$160) and INR 15,999 ($215/$180), respectively. But, sales channels are different, likely to target different demographics.
The Poco M3 Pro 5G is exclusively sold via Flipkart in India, while the Redmi Note 10 5G will be available via Mi Home, Mi Stores and business partners in addition to Mi.com and Amazon.in. You can buy one in chrome white, graphite black, metallic blue or mint green from July 26.
