New Xiaomi phone graces the FCC, could be the Redmi Note 10 Pro
- A phone believed to be the Redmi Note 10 Pro has been spotted on an FCC listing.
- The phone will feature LTE support with Wi-Fi 5 and NFC.
- Further leaks point to a Snapdragon 732G and a 5,050mAh battery.
It seems that Xiaomi is finally ready to tick over to a new model number in its Redmi Note line. A Xiaomi smartphone, believed by XDA to be the upcoming Redmi Note 10 Pro, has now surfaced on an FCC listing.
The phone bears the model number M2101K6G and will pack 4G support with dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and NFC capabilities. The listing also reveals that it will run MIUI 12 out of the box. The listing also suggests at least 6GB of RAM will feature paired with a choice of 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
Although the FCC confirms the existence of the phone, the listing doesn’t reveal much in terms of specs. But a leak stemming from the XiaomiUI Telegram channel adds some color to the listing. It suggests the phone will sport a 120Hz LCD with a 64MP quad camera at the rear. A 5,050mAh battery is also quoted, while the Snapdragon 732G SoC could also feature.
The leak also suggests at least two variants of the M2101K6G will be made available, namely “sweet” and “sweetin.” The latter does not feature NFC and will likely be a regional variant for India.

This info hasn’t been corroborated by Xiaomi, so take it with a pinch of salt. But a beefy line of Redmi Note 10 devices have been churning in the rumor mill for quite some time now. In November 2020, a phone believed to be the Redmi Note 10 was outed in a TENAA listing. That particular phone, wearing model number M2010J19SC, packed a 6,000mAh battery as the headline feature.
The latest Redmi model passing through the FCC suggests a launch may not be too far away, but it will likely have to wait for the Redmi Note 9T to make its debut on January 8.
