The realme 10 Pro and Pro Plus made their formal debut in the Chinese market, not only with impressive features but also at extremely reasonable rates. The realme 10 Pro is unquestionably a worthy rival to the Redmi Note 12 Pro, which is expected to be a best-seller in the coming months. With Black Friday approaching, many people are seeking a new phone that offers excellent value for money, and selecting between these two handsets is difficult when we consider both their characteristics and their costs. Here is a comparison of the major specifications of the Redmi Note 12 Pro and the realme 10 Pro that will tell you which smartphone will best fit your needs.
The realme 10 Pro’s design appeals to me because of its simplicity. It lacks a camera island in favor of two tiny, round camera modules positioned immediately on the back cover and a flash LED on the right. Given the fact that there are just two cameras on the back, it appears incredibly sleek and simplistic. Furthermore, it features flat borders, exactly like the current iPhone models. However, the Redmi Note 12 Pro remains a stunning device, particularly when considering its original color options, such as violet. Furthermore, with the IP53 certification, it is splash and dust-resistant, making it appealing even in terms of build quality.
If you want the most sophisticated display, you should go with the Redmi Note 12 Pro without hesitation. It is the only gadget in this duo with an OLED display, which is reason enough to favor it over the realme 10 Pro. Aside from that, it is a fantastic panel in terms of the rest of the characteristics. It has a 6.67-inch diagonal, a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, one billion colors, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, HDR10+ certification, a peak brightness of 900 nits, and an under-display fingerprint scanner. Unfortunately, the realme 10 Pro features a subpar IPS display. It has a screen of 6.72 inches, a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and a peak brightness of 680 nits.
The Redmi Note 12 Pro has an excellent camera configuration, featuring a 50 MP primary camera with OIS, an 8 MP ultrawide shooter, and a 2 MP macro lens. The realme 10 Pro features only two cameras: a 108 MP primary sensor with no OIS and a 2 MP macro lens.
Specs & Performance
The Redmi Note 12 Pro has the most powerful hardware department. It has a superior Mediatek Dimensity 1080 chipset with a 6 nm manufacturing process and an octa-core design. The SoC consists of two Cortex A78 performance cores with a maximum frequency of 2.6 GHz, six Cortex A55 efficiency cores with a maximum frequency of 2 GHz, and a Mali G68 MC4 GPU, with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of native storage. The realme 10 Pro features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset with a maximum frequency of 2.2 GHz, up to 12 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB of native storage. However, the realme 10 Pro offers two significant advantages: a microSD card and Android 13 out of the box rather than Android 12.
The battery capacity of these two phones is identical: 5000 mAh. However, the Redmi Note 12 Pro has a longer battery life due to the availability of more efficient components, particularly the OLED display. It also charges faster owing to 67W fast charging. The realme 10 Pro’s 5000 mAh battery supports 33W fast charging.
Price & Availability
The Redmi Note 12 Pro has a starting price of $269 or roughly Php15,259, whereas the Realme 10 Pro has a starting price of $220 or around Php12,479. Because of its superior display, cameras, and faster charging, the Redmi wins the comparison.
