Xiaomi has presented its first cheap Redmi mobile with IP68 protection against dust and water: it is the Redmi note 10 JE (Japan Edition), a phone that is cheap and very resistant. It increases the already extended Redmi Note 10 family and will only be available in Japan, at least for now.

Xiaomi’s catalog is not only huge when viewed from a country like Spain, this catalog can be multiplied by several enterics if we try to include in the same portfolio the mobiles that are distributed in all countries . What if such a Redmi from China was a Xiaomi Mi in Europe, phones of the same name that have different specs and even special editions for some countries, like with the recent Redmi Note 10 JE.

IP 68 protection against dust and water with a Snapdragon 480

The choice of a processor as content as the Snapdragon 480 already clearly shows that the economy is the main exponent of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 JE. Externally, it doesn’t stand out too much from an overall Redmi Note 10 (basically it’s a Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G): plastic body, smooth lines, front with top hole for the camera and rear with rectangular photographic module.

In the rear module there are differences since the Japanese model includes a metal edge for the two upper sensors. And it has “only” three rear cameras (the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 overall offers a quad sensor).

The screen of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 JE goes up to 6.5 inches while losing the AMOLED technology of the Note 10 overall (it is IPS LCD), it incorporates a Snapdragon 480 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, 5G, 4800mAh battery and 18W fast charge.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 JE will not be distributed internationally, at least not under this name (who knows if the brand will remove it from Japanese borders by changing the name). It can be purchased from AU and UQ Mobile operators and the price is not known at the moment. Considering the discord in the hardware, it wouldn’t be strange if it was between 150 and 200 euros to change.
