Redmi Note 10 Pro is the latest edition of Xiaomi’s famous Note series. It is also one of the many Note 10 series smartphones that have been launched this year. Redmi’s Note series are known for their excellent features for affordable pricing although there was intense competition for smartphones in this particular price range this year.
Regarding the competition in the price range, Samsung was already going head-to-head with Xiaomi in Nepal and India. The rise of Realme was also evident as it came up with smartphones like Realme 8i which got a good response from the market. There are other options like Vivo or Oppo as well.
The Redmi Note series competes with its own Poco and Redmi series as well. This is probably the market segment with the highest numbers of customers in Nepal and is the very reason that companies are launching multiple models in this price category. Accordingly, Redmi Note 10 Pro also has a lot to offer and can be the number one phone in the mid-range category within the next few days.
