Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro debuted on 13th February with a superb combination of versatile cameras, cutting-edge video recording technology, gaming-friendly processor and many more advanced features. On the same date Xiaomi has launched another flagship phone Mi 10. Though both smartphones look almost similar, the ‘pro’ version overwhelms with some exclusive features. The Xiaomi Mi series happens to be the flagship phone line of Xiaomi Corporation. Headquartered in Beijing, this prominent Chinese electronics brand has acquired worldwide reputation for manufacturing top quality electronic products since its establishment in 2010.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro comes with 6.67-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. It features amazing image quality (1080 x 2340 pixels with 386 ppi density) with comfy resolution (19.5:9). Xiaomi has applied Gorilla Glass 5 to build this flagship mobile handset. Not to mention, 89.8 percent of screen-to-body ratio makes this gadget more attractive. Xiaomi’s other flagship mobile Mi 10 also shares the same configuration.
The 180 Hz touch sensing technology of Mi 10 and Mi 10 pro will offer you smooth user experience. Moreover, these flagship Mi smartphones come with HDR10+ technology with 500 nits brightness, which will certainly make the gaming interface and movies more realistic.
Are you curious about the gaming performance of Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro? Good news is both Smartphones are blessed with Adreno 650 Graphics Unit which will deliver marvelous graphics quality whether you play games, movies or video clips. Furthermore, both smartphones are equipped with the Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 processor (7 nm+), which can run the advanced online games with superb fluency. What is more? The Android 10 Operating system (MIUI 11) makes these Mi phones highly compatible to operate with the up-to-date apps, programs, and software.
And, thanks to the manufacturer for providing huge storage in these flagship Mi phones. Both Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro come in three versions. Their RAM capacity ranges from 8GB to 12GB. Starting from 128 GB, the storage of Mi 10 ranges up to 256GB; whereas, the Pro version reaches up to 512GB initiating from 256 GB. These Mi hotshots literally out win their predecessors with the LPDDR5 RAM technology. This is certainly a bonus for the crazy gamers.
Both phones are equipped with the latest version (UFS 3.0) of Universal Flash Storage technology. However, none of these Mi phones has a card slot insertion option for memory expansion. But this doesn’t seem a huge issue at all, as the provided storage capacities seem enough for regular use.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro comes with a standard power pack of Li-Po 4500 mAh battery. This is the only point where Mi 10 surpasses its ‘Pro’ counterpart. The battery life of Mi 10 will last slightly longer utilizing its Li-Po 4780 mAh battery. However, in the battle of quick charging, Mi 10 Pro is the winner, as it comes with 50W fast battery charging against Mi 10’s 30W capacity. Both phones are capable of 10W wireless charging, which is certainly an added advantage for the people who are always on the move.
Like the ancestor Mi Note 10, 108 MP prime camera sensor is available in both Mi 10 and its Pro version. It won’t be overwhelming to say, you can start professional photography with these hot shot camera phones. However, we have found contrasts while comparing the camera sensors of these phones. Mi 10 is provided with a 13MP ultra-wide sensor aiming to capture landscape views. But Mi 10 Pro’s ultra-wide camera steals the show with 20MP sensor.
If you want to shoot at a long distance target, go for the Mi 10 Pro. Its 8MP Telephoto sensor with 10x hybrid optical zoom is a gem for outdoor/bird/wildlife photography. Furthermore, the Pro version’s 12MP portrait sensor is blessed with double zooming capacity, which is no less than a windfall for those who love to capture moments every now and then. On the other hand, Mi 10 would be great for detailed photography by virtue of its macro and depth cameras both featuring 2MP sensors.
These Mi Flagships won’t disappoint the selfie-lovers. Both Mi 10 and the Pro have 20MP front camera (selfie). However, we have found this configuration in some other competitors, like Galaxy S10 Lite. What makes both the Mi 10 and 10 Pro out stand from their similar priced competitors is their 8K video recording feature. Only expensive competitors like the Galaxy S20 series have such an opportunity today.
Xiaomi didn’t provide any 3.5mm Headphone Jack with the Mi 10 and the Pro Smartphone, which may dishearten many Mi fans! These Mi phones come with Stereo Speakers. The latest 5.1 Bluetooth technology keeps both Mi 10 and the Pro one step ahead from the competitors. Adding to these, taking the advantage of USB 2.0 type-C port of these Mi phones you can transfer data at terrific speed.

After the installation of an "ozone disinfection chamber," Wang Xiangqian felt relieved to resume work amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
As an employee of Broad Clean Air Technology Co., Ltd. in the Changsha Economic and Technological Development Zone, central China's Hunan Province, Wang disinfects himself in the 5-square-meter ozone disinfection chamber before entering the industrial park.
More than 2,000 employees in the industrial park where Wang's company is located have returned to work so far.
Walking into the ozone disinfection chamber, two electrostatic air purifiers in the confined space release ozone, killing bacteria and viruses.
"Although we have asked all the staff to wear masks, we still need to do more," said Guo Jinglong, the general manager of the user center of the company. Guo said on Feb. 9, the company produced two "ozone disinfection chambers" based on the technology of electrostatic purification machine and ozone generator overnight and used in the industrial parks in Changsha, capital of the province and Xiangyin County.
"Compared with chlorinated disinfectants and ultraviolet disinfection, ozone disinfection has the characteristics of full coverage and super-cleanliness, avoiding residues that cause secondary pollution," Guo said.
"The ozone disinfection chamber can help enterprises with epidemic prevention after their employees resume work," Guo said, adding that many enterprises have been consulting them to purchase it.
Three kilometers away in another industrial park, at lunchtime, the road is almost empty, with only a driverless delivery vehicle named "Super Shadow" running between the office buildings.
"Hello, your food has arrived at the downstairs of your building, please scan the QR code to fetch the meal," read one text message sent to the customer who ordered the meal over the phone. Workers and employees in the industrial park then came to the driverless vehicle and took the lunch they had booked through WeChat.
"Super Shadow" was not designed to deliver food, but an unmanned logistics vehicle developed by Xingshen Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd. The company focuses on the core technology of unmanned driving, providing technologies, products and overall solutions related to unmanned driving.
"After returning to work, we decided to use unmanned vehicles to deliver meals to reduce the chances of cross-infection when gathering," said Li Rui, chief operating officer of Xingshen. The company has urgently renovated the internal structure of the "Super Shallow," set up a thermal insulation layer, and turned off the touch screen, allowing people to take meals by scanning QR codes to reduce the risks of touch infection.
"'Super Shadow' can carry up to 200 packed meals at one time. As the delivery route is set, it will return after the delivery is complete," Li said. "The unmanned vehicle can be controlled with a smartphone, and it is always disinfected before departure and after return."
"Artificial intelligence enterprises should give full play to their advantages to help resume work and production," Li said.
NASA engineers have a new plan for pushing down on the heat probe of the InSight Lander, which has been stuck at the Martian surface for a year, according to a release of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) published on Friday.
The mission team plans to command the scoop on InSight's robotic arm to press down on the "mole," a mini pile driver designed to hammer itself as much as 5 meters down.
They hope that pushing down on the mole's top will keep it from backing out of its hole on Mars, as it did twice in recent months after nearly burying itself.
As part of the heat probe, the mole is a 40-centimeter-long spike equipped with an internal hammering mechanism. While burrowing into the soil, it is designed to drag with it a ribbon-like tether that extends from the spacecraft.
Temperature sensors are embedded along the tether to measure heat coming deep from within the planet's interior to reveal important scientific details about the formation of Mars and all rocky planets, including Earth.
The mole found itself stuck on Feb. 28, 2019, the first day of hammering. The InSight team has since determined that the soil here is different from what has been encountered on other parts of Mars. InSight landed in an area with an unusually thick duricrust, or a layer of cemented soil.
The mole needs friction from soil in order to travel downward; without it, recoil from its self-hammering action causes it to simply bounce in place, according to JPL.
Throughout late February and early March, InSight's arm will be maneuvered into position so that the team can test what happens as the mole briefly hammers.
Meanwhile, the team is also considering using the scoop to move more soil into the hole that has formed around the mole. This could add more pressure and friction, allowing it to finally dig down, according to JPL.
The InSight landed safely on Mars on Nov. 26 of 2018 for a two-year mission to explore the deep interior of the Red Planet.
Delta-X, a new NASA airborne investigation, is preparing to embark on its first field campaign in U.S. Mississippi River Delta in coastal Louisiana state, according to a release of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) on Wednesday.
Beginning in April, the Delta-X science team, led by Principal Investigator Marc Simard of JPL, will be collecting data by air and by boat to better understand why some parts of the delta are disappearing due to sea-level rise while other parts are not.
"Millions of people live on, and live from services provided by, coastal deltas like the Mississippi River Delta. But sea-level rise is causing many major deltas to lose land or disappear altogether, taking those services with them," Simard said.
"We hope to be able to predict where and why some parts of the region will disappear and some are likely to survive," he said.
Deltas protect inland areas from wind and flooding during storms. They serve as a first line of defense against sea-level rise, and they are home to many species of plants and wildlife.
The Mississippi River Delta, one of the world's largest, also helps to drive local and national economies via the shipping, fishing and tourism industries. But it is quickly losing land area, according to the release.
Over the course of two field campaigns, one in April and another in the fall, the Delta-X science team will investigate how and why sediment accumulates in some areas and not in others. They will also determine what areas are most susceptible to disappearing beneath rising seas.
The team will fly four times for each campaign, collecting data at both high and low tides to better understand how the tides impact the exchange of water and sediment between river channels and wetlands.
After processing the data, which is expected to take about nine months, the science team will use it to provide detailed models of the delta region and how it works.
"These models will empower local communities and resource managers with the information and prediction capabilities they need to make the necessary decisions to save and restore the delta," Simard said.
