Expanding its portfolio of smartphones, Xiaomi has launched the flagship Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro handsets in China.
The key highlights of the phones include their curved AMOLED displays, 108MP quad camera, 5G connectivity, and top-of-the-line internals.
Both the models share almost same specifications, but it is the internal storage, battery, and the camera setup that differentiate them from each other.
Design and display
A look at both the smartphones
Both Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro share the same design featuring a curved screen and a small display cut-out at the top-left corner.
The handsets sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, and 180Hz touch sampling rate for quicker and more precise touch input.
Plus, these models also house an under-display fingerprint sensor for secure authentication.
Both the handsets offer 108MP main camera
The Mi 10 Pro houses a quad-lens rear camera setup comprising a 108MP main sensor, paired with a 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 12MP short telephoto lens, and an 8MP long telephoto lens.
The standard Mi 10, however, gets a similar setup but with a 13MP wide-angle lens and a couple of 2MP sensors.
Up front, both the models house a 20MP selfie snapper.
Here's a look at the internals
Both the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro draw power from a Snapdragon 865 octa-core processor that comes with built-in 5G modem. The handsets offer up to 12GB RAM and up to 512GB of storage (256GB internal storage on Mi 10).
The former packs a 4,780mAh battery with 30W fast-charging support, while the latter houses a smaller 4,500mAh battery but supports 50W fast-charging.
