Xiaomi India is teasing another phone for India before 2019 closes its doors and it could be coming to India soon. And it’s a phone that could be Xiaomi’s second attempt this year to go for the premium segments where players like OnePlus, Oppo, Realme and Vivo have ventured before. The phone in question is possibly the Mi Note 10, as the teaser has so far only spoken about the presence of a 108-megapixel camera and that’s only present in this phone.
The Mi Note 10 is the best camera phone, at least on paper, in Xiaomi’s stable and it could come across as a gamechanger in the Indian smartphone market, given that it comes with a 108-megapixel camera along with four other cameras in the phone. The Mi Note 10 also comes with high-end specifications for better performance, although not as good as the Redmi K20 Pro. And, it has premium looks to rely on.
Chances are that the Mi Note 10 is coming to India soon and if you are looking to buy a premium camera smartphone, this could be a good choice. Here’s a brief look at what the Mi Note 10 has to offer.
Mi Note 10: What’s new for users
–The Mi Note 10 standout feature is the 108-megapixel Penta camera setup. Xiaomi has used the 108-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HMX Bright sensor that promises high-quality photos with better details and colours over other sensors. Other than that, the Mi Note 10 also comes with a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom, a 5-megapixel camera with 5x optical zoom, a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel macro camera. This is almost like a Swiss Army knife for shutterbugs where you have all the cameras at your disposal and you can use one in whichever way you want.
–For selfies, the Mi Note 10 gets a 32-megapixel camera that sits in a waterdrop notch on top of the screen. For selfie addicts, it should yield good looking selfies.
–When it comes to specifications, the Mi Note 10 has second-best chipset after the Snapdragon 855. There’s a Snapdragon 730G chipset at disposal to look after daily errands paired with up to 6GB RAM. And as usual, Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 will be present on top with all the bells and whistles we have come to expect from Xiaomi phones.
–The Mi Note 10 may not be a powerhouse but the camera could surely drain the battery highly. Hence, the Mi Note 10 has been given a 5260mAh battery that should easily help it last an entire day. And given that it’s a big battery, Xiaomi has thrown in support for 30W fast charging, which should fill it up quickly.
–The Mi Note 10 is also the only Xiaomi phone since the Mi Note 2 to feature a curved edge display on the front along with thin bezels. The Mi Note 10 also has a premium glass body with Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both the front and back.
Mi Note 10 price in India:
The Mi Note 10 is an expensive phone in Europe that costs almost Rs 42,000. In India though, Xiaomi could bring it at a lower price to compete with the likes of OnePlus 7T, Asus 6z and other gaming phones. Hence, you can expect a price of approximately above Rs 30,000 for the Mi Note 10 in India, which will put in the premium category. However, Xiaomi could price it even lower, which means it could be under Rs 30,000 as well. Right now, this is just speculation and we will have to wait for the official announcement.
