Xiaomi has officially launched three new mid-range phones in Kenya. The three phones include two from the company’s sub-brand Redmi (Redmi Note 9, and Redmi Note 9 Pro) and one from the Mi sub-brand called Mi Note 10 Lite. All phones run Android 10 with MIUI 10 on top.
Starting with the Redmi Note 9 series, Redmi Note 9 features a 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS LCD, MediaTek Helio G85 processor, Quad camera setup(48MP main + 8MP ultrawide + 2MP macro + 2MP depth), 5020mAh battery and 3/4GB of memory paired with 64GB/128GB of internal storage. Here, the selfie camera is a single 13MP lens.
The less potent 3GB/64GB variant goes for Ksh 19,999 while the 4GB/128GB model is priced at Ksh 24,999.
For the Pro version, the display is bumped up a bit to 6.67-inch with similar FHD+ resolution which is added on top with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor paired with either 4GB or 6GB of memory. Internal memory storage is either 64GB or 128GB which will cost you Ksh 24,999 and Ksh 27,999, respectively. The camera setup is still a Quad array but with a 5MP macro sensor instead of the 2MP on the standard Note 9. On the front is a single 16MP lens for selfies.
Finally, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite is the priciest of the three. Starting at Ksh 37,670, the phone packs a 6.47-inch FHD+ display(2340 x 1080) with an in-screen fingerprint reader, Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, a 5260 mAh battery with 30W fast-charging support, 6GB of memory and either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. It has Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the rear and back.
The camera setup on the rear includes a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 5MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro sensor. For selfies, there is a single 16MP front-facing camera housed in a display notch.
Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite is selling at Ksh 37,670 for the 6GB/64GB model and Ksh 39,070 for 6GB of memory paired with 128GB of internal storage.
All of these phones are already available via Xiaomi’s Mi Home stores as well as online via Jumia.
