Redmi 10 is set to launch in India next week, and a tipster suggests that the smartphone will be a rebranded Redmi 10C. Images of the latter’s retail box from Nigeria have also surfaced online, hinting at its imminent launch in Africa. The vanilla Redmi 10’s design has been teased via a dedicated microsite and it seems to be similar to the design of Redmi 10C — as seen on the retail box. Both smartphones seems to have a similar rear camera module design and placement.
