Mi 10i tipped to launch in India as a rebranded version of Mi Note 10 Lite

Evidence of it was reportedly spotted in source code.

  • Mi Note 10 Lite was launched in Europe back in April with mid-range specifications
  • The handset packs 64MP quad rear cameras, Snapdragon 730G SoC, and 5,260mAh battery

Mi 10i could be the upcoming Xiaomi Mi series smartphone in India, and tipster who goes by the name ‘the_tech_guy’ on Twitter believes it could be a rebranded version of Mi Note 10 Lite. The tipster spotted Mi 10i with model name ‘tacoin’ and 64MP quad camera setup just below Mi Note 10 Lite listing, which also has ‘taco’ in model name and similar camera setup, in source code. It’s being pointed out that ‘in’ in the Mi 10i model name could be short for India and indicates its launch in the country.

The Mi 10i specifications could be the same as Mi Note 10 Lite. The latter, to recall, was launched in Europe back in April as a stripped-down version of the Mi Note 10, which packs a 108MP primary camera. The Mi Note 10 Lite, on the other hand, flaunts mid-range specifications such as quad camera setup at the back with 64MP primary camera, Snapdragon 730G SoC, and a whopping 5,260mAh battery.

The handset runs Android 10-based MIUI 11 out of the box and sports a 6.47-inch FHD+ (2340×1080 pixels) AMOLED curved display with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera atop. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner for security. The smartphone supports 30W fast charging and gets a 16MP camera on the front for selfies and video calling. Connectivity options include Type-C port, 3.5 headphone jack, Wi-Fi, dual SIM support, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS, and GLONASS.

The Mi Note 10 Lite is priced at EUR 349 (around Rs 28,400) for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. The higher configuration with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at EUR 399 (about Rs 32,500).
