After launching the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G in China last year, Xiaomi launched the phone in India today but under the “Mi” series. It launched as Xiaomi Mi 10i & apart from the name, there isn’t any significant difference between it and the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. It is a 5G phone and Xiaomi has priced the base variant at Rs 20,999. At the price, the phone offers a 108 Megapixel camera, Snapdragon 750G SOC, a 120Hz LCD, 33W Fast Charging, and more.
There is no change in the design except for the logo on the rear. It says “Mi” instead of “Redmi”. There is a circular camera module having the Quad camera setup in it. There is a side-facing fingerprint scanner and on the front, Mi 10i has a centered hole-punch cutout. The USB Type-C port is present on the bottom alongside the headphone jack & the primary speaker.
