Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro: Flagship Snapdragon 865, 108MP camera and a beastly 50W fast charge
It is official, after being rumored for several months, Xiaomi has introduced the new Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro at a time when the company is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary.
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the presentation had to be held in the format of an online broadcast. The event was streamed live on Xiaomi’s Weibo page.
At an online event for the Chinese market, Xiaomi has presented the two new smartphones from its catalog officially. The company had earlier stated to host a second presentation on February 23rd, but due to the cancellation of the MWC the company has decided to delay the announcement. In the meantime, we can already see the main features and specifications of the new devices, along with official images of the phone.
Although the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro share the same Snapdragon 865 processor, the 90Hz curved AMOLED display or the 108MP main lens, there are things that make the Pro version the most desirable.
