Last week, we saw the debut of the Xiaomi’s Mi 10T series. And now Xiaomi India confirmed the devices are coming to the country on October 12. The phones will be unveiled at 12PM IST time.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T series has been announced consisting of the ‘standard’ Mi 10T as well as a Mi 10T Lite and Mi 10T Pro. And it feels like Xiaomi is returning to its roots with these smartphones.
Unlike the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro launched early in 2020, the Mi 10T series phones have mid-range specs in a few regards but likely won’t cost too much. That’s the kind of value proposition the company is famous for, though the Mi 10 phones were more like premium devices.
To help you get your head around the three new Xiaomi phones we’ve collated all their specs below, so you can see what they’re like and how they compare to each other.
The Mi 10T and its Pro counterpart come with 144Hz adaptive refresh rate LCDs which can go down to 30Hz to save power when not needed and also support a lot of intermediary steps – 48Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz, and 120Hz. Both sports by the Snapdragon 865 chipset with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. Both has a battery capacity of 5,000 mAh. And also, it sports 33W wireless charging.
In terms of general design, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite looks a lot like the Poco X3 NFC with a rounded camera bump central on the back of the phone, while the other two Mi 10T phones look pretty similar with camera bumps in the top-left. They both have a pretty huge main lens, which screams ‘I’m a powerful camera!’, though we’ll have to test to see if this turns out to be true.
None of the phones seem to have a 3.5mm headphone jack, not even the Lite, though each uses a USB-C port. They all have glass fronts and backs, with metal frames between.
The main difference comes down to the main cameras where the Pro comes with a 108MP module with a 1/1.33” sensor, OIS and 8K video recording. On the other hand, the regular Xiaomi Mi 10T smartphone swaps it for a 64MP shooter with 1/1.7” size and no OIS. The remaining sensors are a 13MP ultrawide and a 5MP macro cam.
