Obviously this is the flagship smartphone of the company, so the features in it also come premium. this phone OnePlus 8 And OnePlus 8 Pro, Realme X50 Pro 5G, iPhone SE (2020), iPhone XR And Samsung Galaxy S20 And Galaxy S10 bumps into.
The planned launch of this phone was delayed due to the lockdown and it is this lockdown that prevents us from taking the device in our hands, but Xiaomi has given Gadgets 360 all the nuances of the Mi 10 5G and also the answers to all our questions about the smartphone. so we can tell you about our initial analysis.
To begin with, we will first talk about the design of the Xiaomi Mi 10 5G. The company has made a lot of improvements in terms of styling and build quality in the smartphone. Being a flagship, the company has tried to make the smartphone as attractive as possible. In Mi 10 5G we get 3D curved glass display. It will be available in India in two colours, Signature Coral Green and Twilight Grey.
Coming to the cameras, the most important thing in the included quad rear camera setup and the USPs of the smartphone are the 108-megapixel primary camera with OIS and a large sensor to help users capture great detail even on long distance photos. does. The smartphone is also capable of recording 8K video, although how effective it is in the real world remains to be seen.
Xiaomi has Multiple camera features Introduced, which take advantage of the large primary sensor and the processing power of the chipset, the most interesting of them include Phased Depth in Portrait Mode, Focus Peaking in Pro Mode, Portrait Video, Color Extraction, AI Exposure and Contrast Correction, Night mode and a brand new vlog mode.
These are all interesting features and show that Xiaomi is thinking not only about the specifications, but also about its users. However, we are a bit confused about the other cameras on the back. Other cameras on the rear camera setup include a 13-megapixel wide-angle, 2-megapixel macro and 2-megapixel depth sensor, which makes it feel like the common mid-range smartphone camera that comes today. You will find cameras of the same resolution on smartphones of sub-15,000 cm and even redmi note 9 pro (Review) Has a better macro camera. The company told Gadgets 360 that these agreements were necessary to keep costs under control.
The Mi 10 5G comes with a 6.67-inch screen size and a panel with full-HD+ 1080×2340 resolution, which cannot be called flagship-level. Xiaomi has included 90Hz refresh rate, DCI-P3 color gamut coverage and HDR10+ support in this display. The company has also taken care of color accuracy on the smartphone for photographers and designers. The company says that those who shop online should know what the product will actually look like.
Xiaomi’s flagship has Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, which we have seen in many premium phones in the past and we know that it is a very powerful processor. Several temperature sensors and cooling systems have also been provided in the phone to maintain the temperature. You get 5G support, although at the moment this feature is not useful in India, as 5G connectivity is not available in India at this time. Xiaomi also insisted on including 5G at the end of the name of this model in India.
The Mi 10 5G uses 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and includes 128GB and 256GB storage options with UFS 3.0 standard. The company has not introduced the 12 GB RAM variant in India, although this option is present in other markets. Other features include Wi-Fi 6, 4780 mAh capacity battery, 30W wired as well as 30W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging. Interestingly, there is no 3.5mm headphone socket and there is no notification LED either.
What impressed us was that Xiaomi has made some minor changes to its MIUI software specifically for the Mi 10 5G and the company is calling it “Tier 1 Android”. The company has removed many of its native apps, such as the phone dialer and message apps, from it. Instead, Google’s stock apps have been used in it. Apart from this, the company has also promised that all advertisements, promotional notifications, bloatware and other methods of revenue generation have also been removed in this software. This phone will be one of the first Xiaomi smartphones to receive MIUI 12.
We are eager to test the performance of this phone and what Xiaomi claims, especially its cooling system and display quality. Of course its specifications on the pages are impressive, but in the end the user experience matters most. Xiaomi also notes some other aspects of this phone like balanced stereo speakers, 180Hz touch sampling rate, good vibration alert, smaller camera cutout than usual. We will do a full review of the Mi 10 5G, which will cover all these aspects. However, for that we will have to wait for the lockdown to open.
Overall, the Mi 10 5G shows that Xiaomi can do a lot more than just a budget phone. Its price can be considered a good value considering its features specifications, given that it takes an edge over the recently launched OnePlus 8 in some respects. But alas, it’s not entirely a flagship device – it lacks an IP rating, the rear cameras sync well and the screen may not be as good as some of the competition offers.
