Xiaomi Mi 10 launch happening on 27 March, passes SIRIM certification

The global launch of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series is happening at the end of this month. Originally scheduled to be unveiled in February, the launch event was postponed after the cancellation of MWC 2020.

In case you missed it, both the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro were already announced in China and these are currently Xiaomi’s top of the flagship smartphones. Both runs on a Snapdragon 865 processor with a 6.67″ 90Hz AMOLED display. It also configured with a higher-end LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage.

For the top-of-the-line Mi 10 Pro gets a quad-camera setup with a 108MP f/1.69 main camera, an 8MP telephoto lens with 10X hybrid zoom, a 12MP f/2.0 portrait lens with 2x optical zoom and a 20MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle shooter. The device also features a 20MP punch-hole camera that sits on the top left corner of the screen. At the moment, the Mi 10 Pro shares the highest DxOMark Mobile score with the Oppo Find X2 Pro.

Powering the device is a large 4,500mAh battery and it supports 50W fast wired charging as well as 30W wireless charging. In China, the Mi 10 is priced from CNY 3,999 (about RM2,406) while the Mi 10 Pro is priced from CNY 4,999 (about RM3,008).
