Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has been launched in China on 13th February 2020 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, thisprominentChinese electronics brand has acquired a 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 the 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 a 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? The 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 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 hotshot 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 a 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 a 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 outstand 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 of 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.
