Mi 10T & Mi 10T Pro specs
Xiaomi’s Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro are pretty similar smartphones. Both devices come with 6.67″ Full HD+ LCD displays that boast a staggering 144Hz refresh rate. On top of that, the display also features Xiaomi’s new AdaptiveSync technology that’ll allow the handset to adapt its refresh rate to what’s being shown on screen. There is also a tiny punch hole at the top corner of the smartphone which houses a 20MP selfie shooter.
Inside, both devices are powered by a Snapdragon 865 5G processor, with a massive 5,000 mAh battery keeping the lights on. The handset also supports 33W fast-charging via a USB-C port.
The biggest difference between the two handsets lies in their camera system. While both devices pack triple camera systems with a 13MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP macro camera, their main wide cameras are different. The Mi 10T features a 64MP sensor while the Mi 10T Pro will come with a 108MP sensor instead.
Other features include stereo speakers, an IR blaster as well as a glass and metal body. In fact, both the front and rear panel as well as the glass over the camera lens, are protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5.
Unfortunately, Xiaomi Malaysia did not reveal any information about the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite, but we’ll update you if we hear from them about that.
