Xiaomi Mi 10i Design

The design of the Xiaomi Mi 10i is very similar to that of the Poco X3. The smartphone comes with a circular camera module, reminding us of the OnePlus 7T, especially the Pacific Sunrise color. The back of the phone is made using polycarbonate material. Xiaomi uses Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. The back has a smooth finish and isn’t a fingerprint magnet, surprisingly. There are three color options to choose from Midnight Black, Atlantic Blue, and Pacific Sunrise.

Out of them, the most attention-grabbing one is the Pacific Sunrise color. With this version, the back has a color gradient that changes from blue to white, and orange.

The camera module is quite large. However, it doesn’t protrude much. On the right, there is a fingerprint sensor embedded into the power button. Right above it is the volume button. On the left is a hybrid dual-SIM tray. This means you will have to choose between extra storage and a second SIM.

You still have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The smartphone has a rare feature, which is the tiny notification LED that is placed right next to the earpiece. The LED will light up when you have messages or call alerts and when you charge the phone.

The smartphone has a 6.67-inch Full HD+ LCD display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 120Hz.
