Mi 10 is set to start today as the next-generation leading Smartphone of Xiaomi. The Smartphone is established to debut with the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and LPDDR5 RAM. It is also hackled to debut with a 90Hz curved display and a quad rear camera setup. The Mi 10 will rise as the inheritor to the Mi 9 that was started last year. In addition to the Mi 10, Xiaomi is probably to fetch the Mi 10 Pro that has also been proved as a new Mi-series offering. The company, however, hasn't yet made public any teasers publishing the hardware details of the Mi 10 Pro. Read on to get details about the Mi 10 opening details.
The Mi 10 started event will take place through an “online-only broadcast” today. This could be due to the coronavirus outbreak in China. The broadcast will start at 2pm CST Asia (11:30am IST) by the official Xiaomi account on Weibo.
Xiaomi last week verified that besides hosting its live stream in China, a Mi 10 pre-MWC 2020 worldwide launch would take place on February 23. The company will use that event to showcase the latest phone to worldwide media.
The Mi 10 price is yet to be published formally, though a recent report demand that the phone's 8GB + 128GB variant could carry a price tag of CNY 4,200 (roughly Rs. 43,000), while its 8GB + 256GB option is gossip to be priced at CNY 4,500 (roughly Rs. 46,000) and 12GB + 256GB model could be priced at CNY 4,900 (roughly Rs. 50,200).
To remember, the Mi 9 was started in China in February last year with a opening price of CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 30,700) for the 6GB + 128GB variant. The smartphone also had an 8GB + 128GB option that carried a price tag of CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 33,800).
The Mi 10 is teased to run MIUI 11 and come with a curved AMOLED display that will have a single hole-punch model and a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone will have a 180Hz touch sampling rate and support HDR10+ standard. Further, it is teased to have 8K video recording support and dual stereo speakers. The Mi 10 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, as announced by Xiaomi at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit in December.
Other formally teasers have displayed a 4,500mAh battery on the Mi 10 that will support 50W wired Flash Charge technology as well as 30W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging. Connectivity options on the Mi 10 are teased to include 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, dual-frequency GPS, NFC, and an infrared (IR) blaster. Some teaser images have also shown the quad rear camera setup of the Mi 10 that will cover a 108-megapixel primary sensor.
