Redmi 10C has been officially launched in Nepal. This is yet another budget offering from the company. This is also the fourth launch in the Redmi 10 series. Xiaomi previously launched the Redmi 10, Redmi 10A, and Redmi 10 Prime of the same series in Nepal.
Redmi 10C is a smartphone with some basic features. It has an HD+ display and a simple design. There is a high-resolution primary camera lens on it, but the rest are not so impressive. The battery backup on it is also basic but supports a faster charging system. Yet, the Redmi series has always been a value for money and Redmi 10C should be no different.
