Xiaomi has announced its Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro smartphones today which will also be the companies latest flagship series. These smartphones have been announced at an event in China as it was promised earlier and both the phones feature the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC. Both the devices will be coming with a 6.67-inch FHD+ curved AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate.
The handsets come with a punch cutout at the top-left corner housing a 20MP selfie camera which also supports facial unlocking system. Both the phone will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC coupled with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Xiaomi has provided both the phones with slightly different cameras with the Mi 10 featuring a 108MP main sensor, 14MP wide-angle camera and two 2MP cameras on the rear.
However, making such a device requires state of the art facilities, which are not available in India.
We will have to import 100% of units if we launch the #Mi10 in India. Hence, it will have a different pricing model than usual.
