While the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro were not secret devices, launched over a month ago in China, today Xiaomi is catching up on what was originally planned to be a global product reveal and launch event for the MWC2020.
The new Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are the mainline flagship smartphones of Xiaomi for 2020, featuring the newest Snapdragon 865 SoC, as well as a bunch of multiple camera hardware, including the popular HMX 108MP camera sensor built in partnership between Samsung and Xiaomi.
The phones adopt the company’s strategy to deliver highly favorable quality hardware, including functionality you might usually anticipate from higher-end versions. This year, Xiaomi has built on some of these specifications, now having considerably bigger batteries relative to the Mi 9 model, a fresh 90Hz screen and other exciting updates such as dual stereo speakers.
Being powered by the Snapdragon 865, the Mi 10 phones will be extremely competitive in their positioning when it comes to performance and power efficiency as the Qualcomm chip this year has beaten expectations. For the western markets, Xiaomi is configuring the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro with 8GB of LPDDR5, and UFS 3.0 storage with a choice of 128 or 256GB for the Mi 10, and a base 256GB model for the Mi 10 Pro.
