Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro with Snapdragon 865, 144Hz Adaptive LCD display, 5G launch in India
Until last year, Xiaomi had primarily been focusing on the budget segments with its value-for-money offerings in price-competitive markets like India. Earlier this year, Xiaomi changed its focus by separating the Mi and Redmi brands and launching its flagship Mi 10 (review) in the country. Xiaomi’s biggest competitor in this price segment — OnePlus — announced their T upgrade for this year only yesterday and to match up to that Xiaomi is bringing not just one but two fighters in the arena. Xiaomi is launching the Mi 10T and the Mi 10T Pro smartphones with a Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 108MP camera, 144Hz “Adaptive” LCD display, and several other quirks in India.
With the display of the smartphone, Xiaomi takes an unorthodox approach by bringing a 144Hz LCD display in a price segment populated with smartphones sporting AMOLED displays. To justify the use of an LCD over AMOLED on the Mi 10T series, Xiaomi claims that the display has been tuned for higher color accuracy and it supports HDR10 and up to 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The display measures 6.67 inches diagonally with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of Full HD+. The smartphones also boast of the “Adaptive” display that can intelligently shift the refresh rate based on the app on the content, similar to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (review).
The Mi 10T and the Mi 10T are almost identical in most regards but a major difference comes in terms of the rear cameras. While the Xiaomi Mi 10T sports a 64MP primary camera, the Mi 10T Pro features a 108MP camera. Other than the primary camera, both of the smartphones share the same 13MP ultra-wide-angle and the 5MP macro cameras on the back and the 20MP hole-punch camera on the front. The two smartphones can record videos in up to 8K resolution and supports OIS for stable videos.
Internally, both — the Mi 10 and the Mi 10T Pro — feature the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The non-Pro also gets a 6GB RAM variant. For charging, the Mi 10T series supports 33W wired charging with “Dual Split charging” that allows the batteries to be charged nearly twice as fast as the Mi 10.
In terms of software, the smartphones run the latest version of Xiaomi’s Android overlay — MIUI 12 — based on Android 10.
