Mi 10 India launch date announcement expected soon as Xiaomi teases 108MP camera phone

The Mi 10 India launch was postponed from March 31st due to nationwide lockdown.

Highlights
  • Mi 10 is Xiaomi’s flagship smartphone and packs 108MP quad rear cameras
  • The handset is driven by high-end Snapdragon 865 SoC, with up to 12GB of RAM, and 512GB storage onboard
  • The Mi 10 runs Android 10-based MIUI 11 out of the box

Mi 10 is among the many smartphones whose India launch was postponed due to coronavirus-induced lockdown. Now that the government has lifted restrictions in a few areas, the Mi 10 India launch is expected soon. Xiaomi has started teasing its first Mi-series flagship phone in India since the Mi MIX 2 in 2018 yet again. The company’s India head Manu Kumar Jain has shared a couple of teasers about a 108MP camera phone — the Mi 10 rocks a 108MP camera, suggesting its launch is around the corner. To recall, the smartphone was originally slated to break cover in India back on March 31st, but those plans got scuppered due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The teasers came soon after Xiaomi resumed taking orders for its products from Mi.com in the country; the company is shipping devices to green and orange zones across India now.

Mi 10 specifications

Since the Mi 10 has been launched globally and China, its specifications are more or less confirmed. The handset will run Android 10-based MIUI 11 out of the box. It’ll sport a curved 6.67-inch full HD+ AMOLED display that bears 1,080 × 2,340 pixels resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, a punch-hole cutout to house the selfie camera and 180Hz touch sampling rate. The handset rocks Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC coupled with Adreno 650 GPU, up to 12GB of RAM, and 512GB storage under the hood.

In optics, the Mi 10 packs quad-rear camera setup consisting of a 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX primary sensor, dual 2MP sensors (f/2.4 aperture), a 13MP (f/2.4) wide-angle lens, and LED flash. On the front, there is a 20MP snapper for selfies and video chats. There is an in-display fingerprint sensor for security and a 4,780mAh battery with 30W fast-charging support. Connectivity options include 5G SA/NSA, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS/ Galileo, and USB Type-C port.

The only missing pieces of the puzzle are the Mi 10 price in India and the release date.
