Xiaomi Mi 10 & Mi 10 Pro might have a different pricing model compared to its predecessors and their global launch date is also moved to a later date.
- MediaTek Announced Mid-Range Helio P95 With PowerVR GPU, APU 2.0, and more
- Huawei MED-AL00 Listed On Geekbench With MediaTek MT6765V & 4GB RAM
- LG V60 ThinQ Is Here: Snapdragon 865, Dual-Screen, 5,000mAh Battery
Xiaomi announced the Xiaomi Mi 10 & Mi 10 Pro earlier today in its home market, China. The duo feature the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 865 chipset, 108MP quad rear cameras, curved Super AMOLED panel, and dual-mode 5G connectivity. Shortly after the official announcement, CEO of Xiaomi India, Manu Kumar Jain confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi 10 series will come to India, but he didn't give us a specific date. However, in a later Tweet, he said that it would require state-of-the-art facilities to manufacture the Xiaomi Mi 10 duo and they are not available in India at the moment. That means the brand has to import all units to India, which will likely increase the cost of the smartphones. And that is why Jain said that the company would have to use a different pricing model and the Xiaomi Mi 10 price in India will likely be more expensive.
Another sad news is that the global launch of the Mi 10 series is also said to be rescheduled to a later date. The reason for that is the cancellation of the MWC 2020 event by GSMA. Many giant brands in the mobile industry have announced to pull out of the event and that forces GSMA to cancel MWC 2020. Xiaomi initially planned to announce the series globally on 23 February, but it will move to another date that remains unknown for now.
To recall, the Xiaomi Mi 10 & Mi 10 Pro are announced with a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED panel that supports FHD+ resolution & 90Hz refresh rate. They are powered by the powerful Snapdragon 865 SoC with dual-mode 5G connectivity. For photography, they both pack quad rear cameras with a 108MP main sensor. While the Mi 10 is fueled by a 4,780mAh battery, the Mi 10 Pro gets a 4,500mAh battery. However, the latter supports 50W fast charging standard, while the former only gets a 30W fast charger.
