The leaks suggest a 5,050mAh battery as the internal power source. This is expected to be backed by a 33W fast charger. But, a recent Weibo outing by Redmi GM, Mr. Lu Weibing, we fret there will be no adapter inside the box. While taking suggestions for the forthcoming Redmi Note 10 phones, he accepted a user comment of excluding the charger from the package. His response was “message received,” which birthed our concerns. Well, even if it ends up true, we hope it’s executed like Mi 11‘s case wherein the user was given the free choice to tick whether they want an in-box charger or not.
Anyways, we count on seeing these and other concerns getting answers in the days leading to the launch. So, bookmark this page to stay abreast of the Redmi Note 10 Pro and its siblings.
