Xiaomi doesn’t usually do big local launches, but when it does, you know that their new phone is going to be a killer.
Xiaomi officially launched its latest flagship smartphones, the Xiaomi Mi 10T 5G, and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro 5G packing the fastest processor matched by first in class display, some pretty crazy camera features, a big battery and a price that stays true to the brand’s honest pricing.
The two devices are pretty much identical and only differs in its cameras and storage capacity, as the Mi 10T Pro version has a 108MP OIS main shooter and a 256GB storage option.
Here are 10 things we learned from the Mi 10T Pro launch that made us very excited:
1. 108MP CAMERAS: Xiaomi played a pivotal role in defining the 108MP camera segment – from debuting the world’s first 108MP smartphone camera to introducing countless photography software innovations in the past year alone. The Mi 10T Pro has a 108MP camera 13MP ultra wide-angle, 5MP macro camera and a 20MP front camera.
2. NEW CAMERA FEATURES/FILTERS: Complementing this 108MP camera, the Mi 10T Pro highlights several new and dynamic photography software features including six standalone Long exposure mode such as; Moving crowd – which focuses on an idle subject while blurring dynamic surroundings; Star trails – which creates a swirling starry sky effect. Photo Clones– captures four of you in a single shot. Plus, Timed burst– to set up photos with a time gap that can also be converted into video. There are also three new photo filters which you’d actually want to use– Cyberpunk, Gold vibes and Black ice. For videos the Mi 10T Video Clones capture “two selves” in one video, while Dual Video can record from the device’s front and back cameras simultaneously. Finally, Time-lapse selfie video lets users create a fast-forward effect for more engaging vlogs.
3. FASTEST PROCESSOR: Anchored by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T offer extreme power efficiency, performance, and 5G connectivity. Xiaomi packed in a wide range of 5G bands, ensuring compatibility with more networks in more locations than before.
4. GAMING POWERHOUSE. Users will also experience desktop level gaming thanks to the Qualcomm Adreno 650 GPU. Together with UFS3.1 and LPDDR5, the devices tout the industry-leading smartphone ROM and RAM available today.
5. HIGHEST 144HZ REFRESH RATE: The Mi 10T Pro not only features one of the best flat displays available in any smartphone today, but also an industry-leading 144Hz refresh rate. Xiaomi’s AdaptiveSync display automatically matches the content’s frame rate, from enjoying your favorite movie at 48Hz to watching TV series at 50Hz, from streaming video at 30Hz or 60Hz to scrolling social media feeds or gaming at up to 144Hz – it guarantees a smooth experience and optimum battery usage. And with Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation (MEMC) technology, the devices insert more frames to make video smoother and better viewing.
6. GREAT DUAL SPEAKERS: The Mi 10T Pro has amplified the earpiece to link with the bottom-firing speaker for a stereo pairing, giving this full with plenty of detail and adequate bass. It doesn’t get very loud but it doesn’t get distorted as well even at max volume
7. 5000 mAh battery: Of course a powerful phone needs an equally powerful battery and the Mi10T Pro has a massive 5,000mAh (typ) battery with power optimization technology. When a juice up is needed, no one will miss a beat thanks to MMT (Middle middle tab) technology and an exceptionally fast and uniquely designed 33W wired charging process – made even more convenient by the included 33W charger.
8. ANTIBACTERIAL PROTECTION: The Mi 10T Pro comes with a case that not only protects the phone but the user as well with its anti microbial properties.
It also has an antimicrobial protective film (on the display).
