The phone flaunts a 6.39-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection and 90.7% screen to body ratio. The screen size of the smartphone is the same as the screen size of the original variant.

It comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor coupled with either 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM. The phone comes in three storage options — 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB. As the name indicates, the highlight of the device is the support for 5G connectivity and Xiaomi says that it comes with support for full coverage for China’s three major network carriers.

Coming to the camera department, the device features the same triple-camera setup — a 48-megapixel main sensor with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens. On the front side, it comes with a 20-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video calling.

The phone runs Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 out-of-the-box and not the newly announced MIUI 11. The handset is powered by a 4000 mAh battery and supports 45W fast charging as well as 30W wireless fast charging.
