Xiaomi Mi 10 / 10 Pro Has Multiple Manufacturing Defects Despite Rs. 40,000+ Price

Despite being flagships smartphone with a starting price of Rs. 40,000, the Xiaomi Mi 10 / Mi 10 Pro has been reported to have manufacturing defects on Weibo.

On February 13, Xiaomi officially launched its latest flagship phones, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, at an event held in China. Both of these phones are heavily upgraded compared to their predecessors in terms of hardware, although their price is also much higher.

After going on sales twice, Xiaomi's latest flagship phones were sold out in both times just seconds after they went on sales. Currently, the company has begun shipping to users, but it seems that not everyone is lucky after spending time on getting a Xiaomi Mi 10 / Mi 10 Pro.

According to a user on Weibo, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro that he just received didn’t look exactly the same as the advertisement, accompanied by an extremely silly error. Specifically, the rear camera’s protective glass on this device is placed upside down, making the 108MP text also "flipped around", covering the laser autofocus.

As you can see in the image above, the first sensor of the triple camera setup on the Mi 10 Pro is the main sensor, which is more prominent with a white border. However, due to the camera protection glass being flipped upside down, the white border on the Mi 10 Pro version surrounds the third camera sensor.

Not only the back, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has been complained by many users on Weibo when their phones appeared a rather strange slick located near the punch-hole on the front. At the moment, it is not clear whether this is a fault is a software or hardware issue.

If it's simply a software bug, it's highly likely that it will be easily fixed through a future update. However, if it is really due to a hardware fault, users will have to return the phones to Xiaomi and get new ones.

This is not the first time Xiaomi has sold faulty devices to the market. Earlier, in March last year, a user in China also received a brand new Mi 9 but did not have an LED flash. All you can see on the back of the device is the black background, triple camera cluster, the white Mi logo at the bottom, and the LED flash is nowhere to be seen.

It is normal to have a defect product during mass production, but Xiaomi needs to be scrutinized more closely to make sure they are not mistakenly delivered to the user.

- 8GB RAM + 128GB storage: CNY 3,999, equivalent to Rs. 40,900

- 12GB RAM + 256GB storage: CNY 4,699, equivalent to Rs. 48,000
