Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro teardown and benchmark scores are out
Xiaomi has released an official teardown video of the Mi 10 Pro, revealing all the components present inside the flagship handset. The disassembling has been done in an elegant way, and not how JerryRigEverything would do to test for durability and scratch resistance. Separately, the benchmark scores for the Mi 10 Pro have also surfaced online and they are not impressive.
Xiaomi's teardown of the Mi 10 Pro reveals only the internal components of the handset. The 81-second-long timelapsed video showcases most of the chips including the LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.0 storage, Snapdragon 865 processor, and the Snapdragon X55 5G modem. The clip also reveals the quad rear camera, highlighting the massive size of the 108MP lens which dwarfs other sensors.
Separately, the first benchmark results of the Mi 10 Pro have also surfaced on the web. The phone was tested on the Master Lu benchmarking platform and the results are not very impressive. The Snapdragon 865-powered handset managed a score of 4,69,692 points which is even lower than the Nubia Red Magic 3S (4,88,450 points) that runs on last year's Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset.
The Mi 10 Pro sports a 6.67-inch AMOLED punch-hole display with a full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) resolution, and 90Hz refresh rate. The handset also houses an under-display fingerprint sensor for secure biometric authentication. Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 12GB RAM, up to 512GB of storage, and a 4,500mAh battery which supports 50W fast charging via the Type-C port.
On a related note, the Mi 10 Pro has been adjudged by DxOMark as the best camera smartphone to date, with an outstanding score of 124. It houses a quad-lens rear camera including a 108MP (f/1.7) main sensor, 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 12MP short telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and 8MP long telephoto lens with 10x hybrid zoom. It has a 20MP selfie snapper.
