Xiaomi launches the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro

Xiaomi has just unveiled its latest 5G phones, the flagship Mi 10 series namely Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. The flagships were expected to make a European debut on February in the big MWC 2020 in Barcelona. However, the event got cancelled due to the COVID-19 coronavirus spread.

Overview:

The 10 and the “pro” version both features 6.67-inch 2340 X 1080 AMOLED curved edged screen with a 90 Hz (Looks like the year 2020 is going to be about fluid displays), snapdragon 865 processors, dual-mode 5G, Wi-Fi 6 (speed up to 9.6 Gbps which is an 2.7x increase compared to the Wi-Fi 5), up to 12 gigs of RAM, wireless charging and quad-camera configuration with a boastful 108 megapixels main shooter that can record 8K videos. Both phones are shipping in China before going international. (As usual).

CPU and Performance

The Mi 10 series is powered by the best Qualcomm has to offer yes the Snapdragon 865. As the SD 865 is the flagship chipset of the year, it is a no brainer that it will be offering the multi-gigabit 5G connectivity, which also delivers top-notch performance in terms of the GPU, CPU and the camera capabilities. The SD 865 has its capacity increased by 25% compared to its predecessor. The new Adreno 650 GPU has also 25% upgrade in the rendering speed while the energy consumption has decreased by 35%. The fifth-generation AIE artificial intelligence engine has enabled the AI with 2X more power resulting in better performance with videography, imagery and AI processing applications.

In terms of heat dissipation, Mi 10 series offers the most sophisticated cooling system I have seen on a phone: a 3000mm2 super large vapour chamber, graphene, and a 6 layer graphite structure. It also includes copper foil heat sinks and thermal gel to improve the overall cooling capacity of the Mi 10 and ensures the device stays cool for extreme performance and the obvious fast downloading 5G networks.

Camera

The Mi 10 Pro has a 1/1.33- inch 108-megapixel sensor paired up with an optically stabilized eight element-lens (compared with seven on the Mi-10). It is accompanied by 12 megapixels f/2.0 lens for the portrait, an f/2.0 8 megapixels telephoto lens with a hybrid zoom and a 20 megapixel ultra-wide with a f/2.2 lens and a 117 FOV ( field of view).

While the Mi 10 has a 13-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with an f/2.4 lens and a 123-degree FOV and a pair of 2-megapixel f/2.4 cameras one for the macros and one for the depth-sensing alongside its boastful 108 megapixels primary shooter. It is also the first to support 8K video recording i.e. 7680 x 4320 ultra-high resolutions, while users can shoot 33 MP photos while the 8K recording is going on by a simple tap on the screen. With both OIS and the EIS support, Mi 10 ensures you have a steady capture in extreme conditions.

With a DXOMARK camera of 124 and audio score of 76, Mi 10 pro proudly sits on the top spot of the world as the world’s best camera (Photo and Video) and audio in a smartphone. It beats the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, which was leading previously.

Aside from the camera, Mi 10 series offers by far the strongest audio capabilities of any Xiaomi devices. The audio system is equipped with symmetrical dual 1216 linear speakers with large 1.2 cc sound cavity, which provides 100% more output volume than the predecessor.

Battery and Storage

The MI 10 pro is, of course, the higher specced phone with up to 512 gigs of onboard storage while the non-pro version can get up to 256 gigs of onboard storage. Both the phones use the UFS 3.0 and the LPDDR5 RAM technologies. 50W charging (through the cable) is provided in the pro while 30W on the 10 version and pro edges out with a slightly better display as well. But surprisingly the Pro houses a smaller 4500 mAh battery compared to 4780 mAh on the Mi 10. The reversible charging is provided as well which means the phone can output up to 10W for reverse charging.

Other notable features in this series are the in-display fingerprint, IR blaster for easy home appliances remote control, multifunctional NFC and a linear haptic motor for realistic touch response.
