Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro

Xiaomi publicly launched the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro on world markets on March 27. The systems reflect a major price leap for the company, with the Mi 10 basic beginning at € 799 and the Mi 10 Pro beginning at € 999. The latest phones would have to carry a tremendous amount of dexterity to attract prospective buyers, given last year's Mi 9 began at € 499. The Mi 10 Pro concept looks real Xiaomi. It's not trying to be trendy with bright gradients or prints. The Mi 10 Pro literally comes with soft-touch glass on the rim, in gray, green and purple. This feels close to the finish that OnePlus is placing on its phone, but it isn't as good. While I would have preferred Xiaomi to bring a little more thought into the color and texture, it isn't absolute

The Mi 10 Pro show clearly looks 2020. It uses a curved 6.67-inch, FHD+ AMOLED panel with 10 + HDR support. Appears good. It's not especially beautiful, but it does sustain a refresh rate of 90Hz, which is enjoyed by many people (even if it's not 120Hz). In the top left of the display is a punch hole that houses the front-facing 20MP camera. The Mi 10 Pro features four cameras on the back. In the edge, next to the SIM card tray, you can notice a USB-C charging slot and the power and volume buttons on the right side of the unit. This is a really lightweight phone overall and certainly looks Xiaomi. The Mi 10 Pro adds a lot to the table from a raw-power viewpoint. It is using an 865 and X55 Qualcomm Snapdragon modem to support 5 G sub-6GHz networks, 8 or 12 GB RAM, and 256 or 512 GB ram. This is just as flagship as you can imagine early in 2020, which will keep my fans proud.

The Mi 10 Pro operates a 4,500mAh battery, too. Although this isn't as large as the 5,000mAh cell on either the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra or LG V60, there's something these gadgets don't do: ludicrously fast charging.
