The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro are the first Xiaomi phones with 144Hz displays. Better yet, the flat LCDs have an adaptive refresh rate and can go as low as 30Hz to fit the content. There are intermediate modes too, like 48Hz for movies, 60Hz for regular video, 90Hz and 120Hz too.
The displays measure 6.67” in diagonal and have 1080p+ resolution (20:9). They are HDR10-certified and put out up to 650 nits at full blast. The front is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, another GG5 sheet covers the back. The frames are made of aluminum alloy and there are fingerprint readers embedded in the side.
Both phones are powered by a Snapdragon 865 chipset (no plus) and run MIUI 12 (based on Android 10). They have 5,000 mAh batteries that can be charged rapidly using the included 33W power brick.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has a triple camera starring a 108MP main module. The 1/1.33” sensor features 4-in-1 binning (for 27 million 1.6 µm pixels) and the f/1.7 lens adds optical image stabilization (OIS). Video recording modes go up to 8K resolution at 30 fps.
Next up is a 123° ultrawide camera with a 13MP sensor (1.12 µm pixels, f/2.4 lens). The third module is a 5MP macro camera that can focus between 2 cm and 10 cm (0.8-4 inches).
On the front, a 20MP camera is embedded in a punch hole – it supports HDR, a night mode and 120fps slow motion video.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T is nearly identical, except the main camera has a 64MP sensor – 1/1.7” in size, meaning 16 million of the same 1.6 µm pixels after binning. The lens is dimmer, f/1.9, and lacks OIS. The camera can still record 8K video, however.
The 13MP ultra wide, 5MP macro and 20MP selfie cams are identical.
Both phones offer stereo speakers, Hi-Res Audio certification and X-axis linear vibration motors for an immersive multimedia experience.
Cameras aside, the only remaining differences between the two models are storage and, of course, price. The Mi 10T Pro has 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage. The vanilla Mi 10T starts with 6GB of RAM, there’s an 8GB option, but in both cases you get 128GB storage.
These two are 5G phones with two SIM slots, Wi-Fi 6, NFC and IR blasters.
The vanilla Mi 10T (6/128 GB) will be available in Europe soon at a price of €500, the version with 8 GB of RAM is €50 more. The Mi 10T Pro (8/128 GB) will start at €600, you can double the storage for €50 more). They will be available through a network of partners, both carriers and retailers:
