Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro launched globally with the Snapdragon 865, 108MP camera, and 90Hz display

Xiaomi launched its newest flagship, the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in China just last month. The company planned to bring their flagship to regions outside of China, but COVID-19 did delay their plans by first getting MWC 2020 cancelled, and recently, getting the Indian launch postponed indefinitely. In an online event, Xiaomi is now launching the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro globally, with a specific focus on the EEA market.

XDA VIDEO OF THE DAY

The Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are very similar to each other, with barely any differences in their design, and just a few key differences internally.

Most of the front of the device is dominated by the 6.67″ OLED 90Hz FHD+ display that is curved on the side edges. The camera sits within the hole punch on the top left corner. The rest of the device is a standard affair of glass and metal sandwich, with a USB port on the bottom but no 3.5 mm headphone jack. Both the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro come with quad-rear camera setups, but the sensors are different.

The Mi 10 series is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, coupled with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. There is no microSD expandability on board, so choose the storage capacity that will last you for your usage through the years.

The biggest difference between the two phones is the rear camera setup. The primary camera on both is a 108MP sensor with OIS, though the Pro gets an 8P lens setup against the 7P lens setup on the regular variant. The specifications start diverging at this stage. The Mi 10 gets a 13MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. On the other hand, the Mi 10 Pro keeps up its Pro reputation with a 20MP ultra-wide with, a 12MP portrait, and an 8MP telephoto camera with OIS. Both the phones are capable of 8K video recording, as well as record Portrait Video, videos with Color Focus (focus is in color, while the background is monochrome), and ShootSteady videos (EIS + OIS).

Battery capacity and wired charging speeds are also different on the phones. The Mi 10 gets a larger 4,780mAh battery with 30W fast charging support while the Pro gets a relatively smaller 4,500mAh battery with faster 50W charging support. Both the devices get 30W fast wireless charging support and support for 10W reverse wireless charging. Surprisingly, both the phones come with a 65W charging brick in the box, so you can use the same charger even with laptops.

Pricing and Availability

The Xiaomi Mi 10 will be available for €799 for the 8GB + 128GB variant, and €899 for the 8GB + 256GB variant.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will be available for €999 for the 8GB + 256GB variant. China did get 12GB RAM variants, but these are not available globally just yet.

The device goes on pre-order in various parts of Europe, from April 1, 2020, onwards.
