Xiaomi on Sunday introduced its new mid-range smartphone series in the UAE, featuring two of the biggest features ever on the Chinese manufacturer's device offerings.

The Redmi Note 10 series — unveiled at a virtual event — features improved specifications that continues the Beijing-headquartered company's pledge to bring devices at affordable price points.

The company is determined to "challenge the boundaries" of the mid-range segment, Arjun Batra, country manager of Xiaomi Middle East, said at the event.

Xiaomi — now the world's third-largest smartphone manufacturer — has four of the top 15 best-selling devices in 2020, Batra said, quoting Canalys research. He attributed the success to the Redmi and Redmi Note series; the Note 10's predecessor, the Note 9, has sold over 37 million units, while the entire Note line-up has sold more than 200 million.

Bannering the launch was the top-end Note 10 Pro, featuring the 108MP Voyager lens on its quad-camera setup, promising the "finest" details and an enhanced night mode setting that captures more light.

The Note 10 Pro is also the first Note with an Amoled display, hiking up colours, deep blacks and contrast. It also has support for 33W fast charging.

The Note 10 Pro starts at Dh949, while the base Note 10 begins at Dh699.
