As various brands launch their own take at the flagship killer, Xiaomi wants to stay on top of the throne with the Mi 10T series. As a successor to last year’s Mi 9T series, the Mi 10T ditches the pop-up module for a punch-hole that houses the 20-megapixel selfie snapper. The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro are nearly identical across all specs. Here’s what they share in common:
- A 6.67-inch Full HD+ IPS display with a blazing fast 144hz refresh rate and DCI-P3 color gamut. On top of that, they have Xiaomi’s AdaptiveSync and Motion Compensation (MEMC) for optimized frame rates in viewing select content.
- Snapdragon 865 processor with 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 internal storage.
- 5000mAh battery with 33w wired charging
- 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and 5-megapixel macro camera
- Goodies like stereo speakers, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, Dual-Band GPS, and Gorilla Glass 5
What differentiates them then? Aside from the Pro model having an 8GB/256GB variant and the vanilla model having a 6GB/128GB model, the key difference here is the main rear camera. The vanilla Mi 10T comes with a 64-megapixel camera, while the Mi 10T Pro gets a higher resolution 108-megapixel camera with OIS.
Aside from the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro, there’s also a Mi 10T Lite, which looks similar to the POCO X3 NFC. While it has the same set of rear cameras—64-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and two 2-megapixel cameras for depth sensing and macro shots and the same 6.67-inch Dot Drop display with a 120hz refresh rate, the Mi 10T Lite is powered by a 5G-ready Snapdragon 750G processor. It also comes with a 16-megapixel selfie snapper and a 4820mAh battery with 33w wired charging.
Aside from three new phones, Xiaomi also announced a new 65w GaN compact charger and new Mi Watch with a 1.39-inch circular AMOLED display and a two-button interface.
