Xiaomi Mi 10 series release: 108MP camera and 16GB RAM from ~RM2372

Xiaomi Mi 10

Xiaomi decided not to hold its event as planned, but instead has presented their latest flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 10 line, in an online-only event. Furthermore, both Xiaomi phones pack the Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, support wireless charging capabilities, and 8K video recording. Just like the Xiaomi Mi 10, the Pro model comes with a 6.67-inch Full HD+ curved AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. Redmi joined the high refresh rate club with the Redmi K30 earlier past year. The newly launched Mi 10's display offers a contrast ratio of 5000000:1. The display has a massive peak brightness of 1200nit and includes 4096 levels of brightness adjustment and DC dimming. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. The highest variant offers 12GB RAM and 512GB storage at Yuan 5999 or almost Rs 61,000 plus. The phone runs on the latest version of MIUI 11 and Xiaomi claims an AnTuTu score of 585,232, which is now among the fastest Android phones in the world. Mi 10 upgrades to WiFI 6 to offer speeds up to 9.6Gbps as well. You can see the two speaker holes at the top and bottom respectively. It includes a 108MP primary camera with a 7P lens and OIS support. The phone has 8K video recording support, OIS and EIS.

When it comes to the camera, the Xiaomi Mi 10 comes with a 108MP + 13MP + 2MP + 2MP camera in the rear as well as a 20MP front-facing selfie camera.

What impresses further is Xiaomi's new wireless charging technology that allows a charging speed of 30W on both the devices.

According to Xiaomi, the Mi 10 Pro scores 124 points on DXOMark. The design is exactly the same, along with the display and internal hardware. It's similar to the penta-camera Mi 10 Note that we tried out earlier previous year. Next up, we find a 12MP short telephoto cam with 2x zoom, a 1/2.6-inch type sensor and f/2 aperture followed by an 8MP OIS long telephoto cam capable of 10x hybrid zoom with a 1/4.4-inch sensor and f/2 lens.

As for photography, there are a total of four cameras at the back. You get an AI Pixel camera with an improved color palette and other features including Super Night mode, smooth zooming in videos, movie mode, and more. While most of the specifications on both Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are similar, the latter gets a few bells and whistles in the form of more internal storage, a better camera setup and a different battery. You get 50W wired charging with the Mi 10 Pro, same wattage as the SuperVOOC fast-charging on Realme and Oppo phones. Over and above, the phone will be capable of reverse charging other smartphones at 10W. The rest of the specifications remain the same as the non-Pro variant. It will go on sale starting from February 18 but pre-orders are now live. The highest variant will cost Yuan 4699 for 12GB RAM+256GB. The Mi 10 Pro will go on sale from tomorrow with pre-orders live now. The phone will be available in Blue and White colours.

Xiaomi phones have had great cameras and the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro look set to continue this tradition.

There the Xiaomi Mi 10 starts at CNY 3999 (around $570/£440/AU$850), while the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro starts at CNY 4999 (roughly $715/£550/AU$1,063), with prices rising for more RAM and storage.
