The duo of Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro have gone official at last, with each device packing 4 cameras and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865. The highlight of the 2 smartphones is a 108MP sensor, which comes as it was first seen on the Mi Note 10.

Also, both provide superb connectivity support, including specs such as SA & NSA 5G and Wi-Fi 6. The Mi 10 and its pro version have support for wireless charging.

Additionally, they are the first smartphones coming from the Mi brand sporting a punch hole in the display for the front-facing selfie shooter.

The Mi 10, which will be sold in vanilla colour option, has a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen, in addition to the 108MP primary rear cam. But it has no telephoto camera, getting instead a 2MP depth sensor as well as a 2MP macro shooter. Its ultra-wide unit has also a lower resolution of 13 megapixels.

Furthermore, it features the speedy LPDDR5 RAM & UFS 3.0 storage. It will also capture videos in 8K, just its bigger sibling — the Mi 10 Pro.

With a 4780-mAh battery, it even outdoes the latter. However, it only provides 30W wired charging. The device retains the 30W wireless charging impressively enough, which means it is able to charge just as quickly both ways. Also, there is the 10W reverse charging, too.

The phone, which is slated for launch at exactly 10 AM tomorrow Chinese time, will come in Peach, Green, and Black colour options. It will be sold at the prices, CNY3,999 (€526 or $572) for the version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage; CNY4,299 (€565 or $615) for the 8GB/256GB variant; and CNY4,699 (€618 or $673) for the bigger 12GB/256GB unit.

It was billed to be announced globally in Barcelona, Spain, as part of the activities lined up for MWC 2020; however, the conference has been cancelled. And we have not got further information concerning Xiaomi’s plans.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro — the more impressive of the two devices — gets a 6.67-inch AMOLED FullHD+ screen that has curved edges. Its panel has support for 90Hz refresh rate as well as 180Hz touch sampling rate.

The maker is quite proud of its display that is capable of hitting up to 1200nit peak brightness and can offer 4096 levels of brightness adjustment, in addition to DC dimming.

For both phones, what steals the show is the 108MP cam that has an 8P lens. This unit is accompanied by 3 other great cameras, including a long telephoto lens that supports 10x hybrid zoom, a 20MP ultra-wide angle snapper, and a shorter 12MP 2x telephoto for taking portrait shots.

The 108MP cam features OIS, as well as EIS, and offers a lot of AI enhancements for both stills & video recording, with the latter getting resolutions up to 8K.


The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has 3 memory configurations: These are 8GB RAM/256GB, 12GB/256 GB, and 12GB/512GB. And they all make use of the most recent available technology, which is LPDDR5 RAM & UFS 3.0 storage.

A 4,500mAh battery powers the device, which can be charged at up to 50W via a cable and 30W wirelessly. It can output as much as 10W for reverse charging your other gadgets.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will retail at CNY4,999 (€657 or $715), CNY5,499 (€723 or $787), CNY5,999 (€790 or $860). It is billed for pre-order on February 18 in 2 colours options, White and Blue.
