Xiaomi launches its flagship smartphones with 108MP camera, 90Hz display
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.
