Redmi launched the Redmi 10X Pro 5G in late May alongside regular Redmi 10X 5G and Redmi 10X 4G (aka Redmi Note 9) in China. A few days back, the handset’s Liquid Silver color variant went on sale for the first time. At around the same time, the brand’s general manager Lu Weibing revealed that this variant of the phone is difficult to produce.
The recently launched Redmi 10X Pro 5G in Liquid Silver color version is one of a kind. As you can see from the gallery attached above (courtesy of Digital Chat Station on Weibo), this device looks unique than any other phone available in the market at its price.
The Redmi smartphone not only looks silvery but also mimics a mirror. It is reminiscent of Xiaomi Mi 6 Mercury Silver and Sony Xperia XZ Premium Luminous Chrome color variant, the device which won the Best New Smartphone of MWC 2017 award.
In fact, there have been few phones in this color in the market according to Redmi GM Lu Weibing. He says that manufacturing phones in this particular silver color is a complicated process. The yield is less, which in turn results in high-cost for production.
This clearly means that Redmi 10X Pro 5G Liquid Silver variant will be only available in a limited quantity like the Mi 6 even though the brand executive did not mention it in his Weibo post.
Anyway, it is worth noting that this version of the handset costs only 2,599 yuan ($371) for 8GB + 1256GB storage configuration. On the other hand, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium debuted for $799, which is more than double the price of the Redmi phone.
Even Xiaomi’s Mi 6 Mercury Silver was costlier at 3,999 yuan for 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. What’s interesting is that this handset was recently up for sale in China for 19,999 yuan ($2,854) after three years from its release.
