Xiaomi should name Redmi 10 2023 instead of Redmi 10 2022. After all, it is August now, it is time for manufacturers to present their new products for the YEAR 2023. Also, buyers who placed orders in the past 6 months are for a product for the YEAR 2022 now for the YEAR 2021. That is the basic understanding of the commercial market.
