During today’s global online event, Xiaomi presented its new Mi 10 range, consisting of the Mi 10 Lite and Mi 10 Pro.
The phones were supposed to be launched at MWC 2020 tech event in February, which, as we know didn’t happen after all because of the Covid-19 virus.
The Mi Pro range is defined by its premium features, on a mid-range price, and will become available on April 7 and April 15 depending on your location. However, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite will arrive later, in May 2020. Not to mention the Mi 10 Lite will be the first smartphone ‘one a budget’ to integrate 5G.
In terms of design and appearance, the phones are very similar, integrating screens that curve at the edges and punch-hole cut-out cameras at the top. Both feature a 6.67-inch 1080 x 2340 OLED screen with HDR10+, and a screen refresh rate of 90Hz. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite, however, has a 6.57-inch AMOLED screen.
The highlight of Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro is their 108MP main camera which supports 8K video recording. Xiaomi Mi 10 also has a13MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP macro snapper, and 2MP depth sensor, while Mi 10 Pro has a 20MP ultra-wide camera with two telephoto lenses. The M 10 Lite version integrates 4 rear cameras with a 48MP snapper.
Both M10 and M10 Pro are running on Snapdragon 865 chipset next to a 5G modem. Xiaomi Mi 10 will be available for £699 for 128GB internal storage, while for 256GB it will cost £799. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite will be much cheaper, about €349, but a great deal for a 5G phone.
Keep in mind that by now, stocks are limited because of the pandemic.
