Xiaomi has officially unveiled the new Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in China. The latest entry into the Mi series of smartphones were originally planned to debut globally during the now-cancelled MWC 2020 in Barcelona.
To start things off, both Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro feature a curved 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. They also feature a punch-hole cutout at the top-left corner which houses a 20MP selfie camera. Furthermore, both Xiaomi phones pack the Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, support wireless charging capabilities, and 8K video recording.
The Mi 10 Pro specifically features internal storage of up to 512GB, and a 4500mAh battery that can be charged at up to 50W via cable and 30W wireless. As for camera specifications, the Pro variant packs a quad-camera setup consisting of Samsung’s 108MP sensor for its main, a 12MP telephoto with 2x zoom, 8MP long telephoto with 10x hybrid zoom, and a 20MP ultra-wide lens.
