The Xiaomi Mi 10 features everything you expect from a premium flagship killer phone. Starting with its display, the Mi 10 features a 6.67-inch Full HD+ curved AMOLED display.

The display is certified with HDR10+ for a better viewing experience and Xiaomi claims it reaches a peak brightness of 1120nits for unrestricted legibility irrespective of the ambient lighting. The 90Hz refresh rate and the 180Hz touch sampling rate make the Mi 10 a great choice for gamers.
One of the most exciting features of Xiaomi Mi 10 is its 108MP quad camera setup. The primary 108MP camera is quipped a large 1/1.33″ sensor from Samsung with a 7P lens setup along with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). The sensor combines four pixels into one with pixel-binning and this results in 27MP images. In addition, there is a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera equipped to capture a 123º wide landscape. Adding to those are two 2MP sensors, one for macro photography, and another for depth sensing. Pro mode and HEIF file storage ensure that the phone’s storage does not get filled with just pictures.
The Mi 10 can capture videos at up to 8K resolution, including 8K at 30fps, 4K at 30/60fps, and various slow-motion modes. It also features a cinematic mode for capturing photos and videos in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio.
The hole-punch on the front houses a 20MP selfie camera. It supports AI beauty mode, 3D face-mapping emoji called “Mimoji,” and slofies at 720p/120fps.
The Mi 10 from Xiaomi embraces 5G connectivity and readiness for the future of mobile communications. Thanks to Qualcomm’s X55 modem, part of Snapdragon 865 SoC, the Mi 10 supports non-standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) 5G networks. Wi-Fi 6 is also supported on the Mi 10 alongside Bluetooth 5.1 with AptX Adaptive. The phone also supports simultaneous Wi-Fi and 5G/4G connections for network stability.
