Two weeks after launching them globally, Xiaomi launched the Mi 10T Series in the Indian market today. Unlike the global market that also gets the Mi 10T Lite 5G under this series, only the Xiaomi Mi 10T & Mi 10T Pro were launched in the Indian market.
This time, Xiaomi has kept the pricing pretty aggressive as the Mi 10T starts at Rs 35,999 & the Mi 10T Pro at Rs 39,999. For comparison, the Xiaomi Mi 10 5G launched in the Indian market for Rs 49,999.
XIAOMI MI 10T & MI 10T PRO – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
There is no difference in terms of the design when we compare the two phones as both come with a Glass back with a frosted matte texture, a triple camera setup placed on the top left & a side-facing fingerprint scanner. There is Gorilla Glass 5 on the front, back & also the camera module. Both phones lack 3.5mm headphone jack & offer stereo speakers.
One of the highlights of Xiaomi Mi 10T Series is the display. It is not an OLED panel but, the LCD features 144Hz refresh rate, which is the highest refresh rate on any Xiaomi device so far. It is also a 7-Step AdaptiveSync display which means based on the content on display the screen can adjust its refresh rate from 30Hz to 144Hz.
For example, when you’re playing games, the refresh rate is set to maximum, but while streaming videos, the refresh rate is either 30Hz or 60Hz.
It is a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ panel with TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification.
There is a tiny hole-punch cutout on the top left that houses a 20 Megapixel selfie shooter. Again, this is the case with both the Mi 10T & Mi 10T Pro.
Both phones offer a huge 5,000mAh battery under the hood & both support 33W Fast Wired Charging. You get the 33W Adapter in the box. There is no Wireless Charging support. There is Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SOC powering both phones & both come with up to 8GB LPDDR5 RAM & 128GB UFS 3.1 storage.
Coming to the triple camera setup, the Xiaomi Mi 10T has a primary 64 Megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor with f/1.89 aperture lens whereas the Mi 10T Pro has a 108 Megapixel Sony HMX sensor with f/1.69 aperture lens. The Mi 10T Pro also has OIS for the primary camera which the Mi 10T lacks.
Except for the primary camera, the rest of the two cameras are the same on both phones. So, both have a 13 Megapixel secondary ultra-wide-angle camera with 123-degree FOV & a 5 Megapixel macro camera. Both phones can shoot 8K 30fps & 4K 60fps videos via the primary rear cameras.
Finally, MIUI 12 runs out of the box & there is NFC as well.
