The star of today’s announcement is not the Mi Box 4K or Mi True Wireless Earphones 2. In fact, it is Xiaomi’s most expensive smartphone for the Indian market yet. The Mi 10 goes head-to-head with OnePlus’ 8 Pro series with comparable flagship performance but with an improved design and a whopping 108MP camera sensor.
Mi 10 sports an almost bezel-less design with 3D glass on the front and back and protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The 6.67-inch AMOLED DotDisplay on the front has a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate with the display supporting HDR, P3 colour gamut and a peak brightness of 1120 nits.
Just like most flagship phones these days, Mi 10, too, is also powered by Snapdragon 865 that delivers top-of-the-line performance and brings in 5G along with MultiLink support that enables simultaneous connection to your 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi networks and mobile data. The Mi 10 will also have 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB or 256GB UFS 3.0 storage.
On the camera front, the quad-camera setup at the back is led by 108MP sensor with 13MP manning the ultra-wide duty and 2MP depth and macro sensor. The main camera can shoot videos to up to 8K video resolution. The front has a 20MP selfie camera.
The 4780mAh battery can be charged with the boxed 30W charger or the 30W wireless charger. The phone also supports 10W reverse wireless charging.
Mi 10 will sell in two colour variants – Twilight Grey and Coral Green in 8GB +128GB for Rs. 49,999 and 8GB + 256GB for Rs. 54,999 on Mi.com, Mi Homes, Amazon India and offline retail stores. It will go on sale from May 18 but can be pre-ordered from today to receive a Mi Wireless Power Bank 10000mAh. Additionally, customers transacting with HDFC debit or credit card will also be eligible for Rs. 3,000 discount.
