Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro officially launched

Packed with a 108MP camera, too

Xiaomi officially took the wraps off its newest flagship phones, the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro.

Like the earlier release Mi Note 10 series, the Mi 10 flagships offer quad rear camera setups led by a 108-megapixel sensor. They are also one of the first phones to launch with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset with 5G connectivity built in.

Compared to the Mi 9, the new Mi 10 series offers a punch-hole display for the selfie camera, instead of the notched display we saw last year. The sides of its AMOLED display are also curved and supports HDR10+ right out the box.

These new phones both have the latest MIUI 11 based on Android 10, UFS 3.0 storage, and LPDDR5 RAM technologies. They also feature fast charging, even faster wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging first seen on Huawei’s and Samsung’s flagships.

The new phones also seem to be leaning to gamer-centric features with a liquid cooling system and an external exhaust attachment accessory.
