An allegedhas surfaced on TENAA and although we didn’t find the original listing there, the so-called Digital Chat Station (a famous Weibo tipster) has unearthed the images and the key specs, so we have a good reason to believe him. More importantly, the certification suggests that the actual release is underway.

However, there’s a small discrepancy between the listed specs and the recently announced Redmi Note 10 5G. It still has the same design, 6.5-inch 90Hz IPS display, 5,000 mAh battery and 48MP main camera, but the charging speed on the listing is 22.5W. The global variant of the handset was announced with 18W.
This could mean that TENAA certified the Chinese variant of the phone, so a Chinese release is drawing near. Or the listing talks about the charger, which is often bundled with 18W-capable phones. Xiaomi has been doing this to cut on expenses by shipping its most popular 22.5W charger instead of making separate chargers for all of its models. Only time will tell but the listing does coincide with the promised April release of the global units.
