In opposition to the system, we had last year with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro Max comes in as an Indian-only variant of the standard Redmi Note 10 Pro. Indian consumers will have to deal with the absence of NFC and IP53 certification. Other than that, both smartphones pretty much offer the same package.

Design and Display
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro max design is exactly the same as that of the Global Note 10 Pro, however, enthusiats will be served with a different set of colour options, which pretty much sets both smartphones apart as far as design goes.
Enthusiasts who purchase this device will have three colour options which include Dark Night, Glacial Blue, Vintage Bronze.
Moving on to the build properties, we have gorilla glass 5 upfront, a plastic frame, and glass on the rear. The absence of the IP53 rating for water and dust the shortcomings that surface when compared to the Global Note 10 pro.
