Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro official: all you need to know

The aesthetic component is directly inherited from Xiaomi Mi Note 10, at least on the rear. This is for the arrangement of the camera, but also for the curved display on the front, no longer equipped with notch. Xiaomi has opted for approval with almost all of the top of the range in recent months, or one perforated screen. The hole in the top left houses the selfie camera, with a 1.74 mm footprint reduced to the bone.

For both models we have an AMOLED HDR10 + panel from 6.67 "Full HD + (2340 x 1080 pixels) in 19.5: 9. The engineering team worked hard to have a screen with an excellent performance, starting from 1120 nits of peak brightness. But not only that, because on We 10 Pro the panel has been further refined. The DCI-P3 color range is 100% covered, with JNCD color reproduction <0.55 and Delta E <1.11. The upgrade also affects the refresh rate, now a 90 Hz and with sampling of the touch screen at 180 Hz.

From the aesthetic point of view, to differentiate the Pro from the base we think the colors. The advanced model will in fact be available exclusively in the two colors Starry Blue e Pearl White.

The hardware configuration is based on the last one Snapdragon 865 Qualcomm. Made with a 7 nm + production process, it integrates a Kryo 585 CPU with three clusters: 1 x 2.84 GHz + 3 x 2.42 GHz + 4 x 1.8 GHz. The graphic component is instead managed by the GPU Adreno 650, with a 25% boost, flanked by 8 / 12 GB RAM LPDDR5-2750 quad channel e 128 / 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage not expandable.

A configuration that can reach a benchmark score of more than 580.000 points on Antutu. And to calm the boiling spirits we think of a cooling system with copper heatpipe and multiple layers of graphite. The AI ​​component will also manage the temperatures, monitoring them and adjusting the system accordingly. If that wasn't enough, Xiaomi has thought of creating a accessory ad hoc, with one fan to be attached to the back cover, at the price of 129 yuan (about € 16).

In dimensions of 162.6 x 74.8 x 8.96 mm and a weight of 208 g of , to power the whole thing there is a battery from 4780 mAh, with a further enhanced recharge. In the case of Mi 10 it will be possible to upload it via cable a 30W, fully charging in 65 minutes. Mi 10 Pro will do better with his 50W, taking only 47 minutes. For both the wireless charging it will be at 30W, reaching 100% in 76 minutes, even in reverse mode at 10W for compatible accessories. There will also be a special base for wireless charging, with a built-in fan at the price of 199 yuan (about € 26).

Another novelty will improve a weak department on Mi 9, or the audio one. This is thanks to the use of a pair of stereo speaker, of equivalent size above and below so as not to have imbalances. In addition, the 1.2 cc sound cavity with 0.65 mm amplitude promises a rather sustained volume. No mini-jack input, however, as expected, but the audio compartment is however, was praised by DxOMark.

The new SoC also allows an advanced connectivity department, equipped with Wi-Fi 6 with MU-MIMO and peak speed of 9.6 Gbps. But also and above all modems 5G: dual-mode SA and NSA support (n41, n78, n79, n1 and n3) means that Mi 10 is able to navigate up to 2.92 Gbps in download.

Big news for the Mi 10 camera

Introduced with Mi Note 10, the Samsung HMX sensor from 108 MP also makes its debut on the Mi series, with dimensions of 1 / 1.33 ". Such a large amount of pixels will not be a problem for internal memory, thanks to the support of HEIF compression. The photos can be taken at full resolution, but with a reduced size of about 50% compared to the classic JPG. Hardware and software news will include a mode Super Night 2.0, filmed in 8K, videos with bokeh, macro videos and much more.

Thanks also to the aid of stabilization OIS + EIS, you will be able to take advantage of one 10x hybrid zoom, Up to a maximum of 50x digitally. But also the selfie camera is renewed, introducing the so-called Slo-fies, or Slow-Motion videos at 120 fps. But this is where we find the main differences between the two models. Even if the primary sensor is the same, the same cannot be said for the other sensors. The quad camera is composed as follows for the two devices:

  • My 10
    • Primary 108 MP, 1 / 1.33 ″, 4-in-1 1.16 µm, OIS, 7P lenses

    • Hybrid telephoto lens 10X f/2.0, OIS, 5P lenses
