Just as there was a “T” model with the Mi 9 series last year, Xiaomi is continuing the tradition with the Mi 10 series. Unlike with the Mi 9T series that was basically a rebranded Redmi K20 series for the global market, the Mi 10T series will have an original design, settling for a rectangular camera module with a huge one for the main camera—a trend lately for smartphones as of late.
New official renders of the Mi 10T series show that the main difference between the vanilla and Pro models is the main camera module: the vanilla gets a 64-megapixel main camera while the Pro model gets a 108-megapixel module.
Unlike with the Mi 9T series that used AMOLED panels and an in-display fingerprint scanner, the Mi 10T series will settle for a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, indicating that they will utilize an IPS panel. Both phones are expected to be available outside of China, as a now-taken-down Amazon Spain listing revealed some of the key specs.
According to the listing, the Mi 10T will have a Snapdragon 865 processor and start at 550 Euros(~Php 31.7k) for the 6GB/128GB model. The Mi 10T Pro, on the other hand, has the same processor and starts at 640 Euros(~Php 36.7k) for the 8GB/128GB model. The higher-tier 8GB/256GB model will have a 666.25 Euro (~Php 38.4k).
Other rumored specs include a 144hz refresh rate, 5000mAh battery, and MIUI 12 out of the box.
