A week ago, a device with the name of the Redmi 10X appeared on Google Play Console. While that did raise some suspicions, now we’ve got an official GeekBench listing confirming that the device does in fact exist.
A Xiaomi model listed as Xiaomi M2003J15SC and suspected to be the Redmi 10X has made an appearance on GeekBench. The device popped up on the database on May 11. It runs on Android 10 operating system and features an octa-core MediaTek MT6769Z processor, which is likely the Helio G70 listed earlier in the Google Play Console listing.
This listing again reaffirms speculations that the Redmi 10X is just a renamed Redmi Note 9 for the Chinese market. The Redmi Note 9 appeared on GeekBench back in March with the same Xiaomi Merlin codename and a MediaTek MT6769V processor. The GeekBench score is also similar to this new model.
We can probably expect most aspects of the new Redmi 10X, besides the already mentioned chipset swap, to be borrowed from the Redmi Note 9. Though, given the downgrade precedent, we do have to wonder whether the 48MP, plus 8MP and pair of 2MP main camera array of the Redmi Note 9 will stay unchanged.
For now, we can’t really do much other than wait for more information to come up. The GeekBench listing doesn’t really give us much to work with other than reaffirming the device’s existence. In the meantime, stay tuned on Giztop.com for all your Xiaomi related smartphone news.
