Xiaomi Mi 10i to launch in India as the rebranded Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G

Mi 10i is mentioned in the list of Google Play Supported devices

Recently, Redmi Note 9 5G & Note 9 Pro 5G launched in the Chinese market as Redmi’s first 5G phones under the “Note” series. While the company is yet to say anything on the availability of these devices outside China, the list of Google Play Supported devices has now revealed that the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is launching in the Indian market with a different name.

Xiaomi Mi 10i

It will be called the Xiaomi Mi 10i. It does make sense to launch it with a different name in India since there are already Redmi Note 9 series phones available there.

As we know, the main USP of the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is the 108 Megapixel primary camera on the rear, so we are expecting the same in the Indian variant. In fact, apart from the branding, we are not expecting any changes at all. So, assuming that the Xiaomi Mi 10i is the same phone with no changes, it has a 6.67-inch LCD featuring 120Hz refresh rate & 240Hz touch-sampling rate. The chipset powering it is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G & it is paired with 6/8GB RAM & 128/256GB UFS 2.2 storage.

There is a 4,820mAh battery & the phone supports 33W Fast charging. Android 10 based MIUI 12 runs out of the box.

There are four rear cameras that include a primary 108 Megapixel shooter paired with an 8 Megapixel ultrawide camera & two 2 Megapixel sensors. For selfies, there is a 16 Megapixel camera on the from.

Speaking of the price at which it will launch in India, there is no exact pricing available to us at the moment, but we are hoping it to launch under Rs 30,000 since the Mi 10T series starts at Rs 35,999.
