Xiaomi launches Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro and Mi 10 Lite 5G smartphones in the European market

Xiaomi Mi 10 series flagship phones, which includes Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro smartphones, has now been launched globally. Interestingly, along with the global launch of the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, the company has also taken the wraps off the Mi 10 Lite, a new mid-range offering in the 5G market from Xiaomi.

Xiaomi-Mi-10-Pro

The Xiaomi Mi 10 and the Pro model come with almost the same set of specifications and the major difference is in the camera configuration. While the Mi 10 Pro packs two telephoto lens on the back, one offering 2x optical zoom and the other offering 10x hybrid zoom, the Mi 10 comes with a 2-megapixel macro camera and a depth sensor. The other two sensors on the device include 108-megapixel primary sensor and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide sensor.

Both the smartphones feature a 6.67-inch AMOLED Full HD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate. The devices are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC with up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. There’s also an in-display fingerprint sensor for added security.

Another difference is in the battery department. While the Mi 10 is powered by a 4780 mAh battery with 30W fast charging, the Mi 10 Pro is powered by a 4500 mAh battery with 50W fast charging support. Both the devices also support 30W wireless and 5W reverse wireless charging.

Xiaomi-Mi-10-Lite-5G

On the other hand, the Mi 10 Lite features a slightly smaller 6.57-inch AMOLED display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC. The company says that the device will come with its LiquidCool system to ensure great performance under heavy usage.

It packs 6 GB RAM and will come in two storage options — 64 GB and 128 GB. The phone features a 48-megapixel quad camera system along with a 16-megapixel selfie camera. It is powered by a 4160 mAh battery and supports 20W fast charging technology.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite comes in White, Grey, and Green colors and the pricing starts at €349 and will be available for purchase from early May. The Mi 10 starts at €799 for the base model with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage while the Pro variant is priced at €999.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 series was set to get launched in the Indian market at the end of this month but the launch event has been cancelled as India is under lockdown for 21 days to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.
