Mi Note 10 Lite vs Redmi Note 9 Pro

The Redmi Note 9 Pro that was also announced during today's launch event looks to have very similar specifications at first glance, but it is a fair bit cheaper than Mi Note 10 Lite. Though it appears to have almost the same camera, and adds both a larger display and microSD support, the Redmi also has a slightly lower-capacity battery, IPS rather than AMOLED screen technology, and it lacks an in-display fingerprint sensor.

You may also notice there is a difference in the processors used in these two phones, with the Snapdragon 720G in the Redmi and 730G in the Mi Note 10 Lite. These are actually incredibly similar, and on par for performance and connectivity. The 730G is technically the better chip, with wider support for high-resolution displays and a slightly better ISP for the cameras, but it's definitely not a dealbreaker.

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite Pricing & Availability

We are awaiting UK pricing for all three phones announced during today's launch event. Though we know the Redmi models will go on sale in the UK, the same has not yet been confirmed for Mi Note 10 Lite. Regardless, we're pretty sure you'll be able to source one through the likes of GearBest.

Mi Note 10 Lite will in Europe cost €349 (approx £303) with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage, and €399 (approx £347) with 128GB of storage. It will be available from mid-May. Meanwhile, Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro start at $199 (£159) and $269 (£215).
