Product Overview

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S is an affordable smartphone sitting between the Redmi Note 10 and the Note 10 Pro. It shares the same 6.43-inch OLED display as well as the chassis from the Note 10 but adds three notable features over it:
Xiaomi has endowed the Redmi Note 10S with a higher-resolution 64MP main camera, MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, and NFC connectivity.
Compared to the Redmi Note 10 Pro, however, the Note 10S is disadvantaged in processor and main camera.
The Note 10 S comes with 33W fast charging. It also retains the 3.5mm headphone jack and IR blaster, like other Redmi Note models.

Reviewers from gsmarena have found the following***:
The Redmi Note 10S can capture 4K 30fps video from the main wide camera. The ultra-wide camera also produces stabilized 1080p 30fps videos. While we were shooting our samples, the phone overheated to the point that while it was working the samples we shot were unusable. The phone tends to overheat quite easily and then takes a while to cool down.
