On 12 November 2020, Xiaomi announced the launch of their newest smartphone line, the Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T here in Singapore. The two phones were created to bring mobile creativity and exploration to the next level with unparalleled specs in its class.
With these two phones, Xiaomi keeps to their promise of bringing amazing products at honest prices with every new launch. Alongside the highly-anticipated Mi 10T series, Xiaomi also announced the launch of their very first smart watch, Mi Watch, and the Mi Smart Speaker in the same event. These two complementary products will expand on the brand’s world-leading Internet of Things (IOT) platform.
Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T: Delivering creativity and excellence
The Mi 10T line builds upon the features of the Mi 10 that were most loved, bringing forward the specs that Mi fans have raved about, and streamlining the device to keep prices affordable.
Like the Mi 10, Xiaomi has maintained its category-defining ultra-high resolution legacy with its 108MP camera that can be found on the Mi 10T Pro. Meanwhile, the Mi 10T features an impressive 64MP main camera. Both phones have a triple camera setup with a 13MP ultra wide-angle camera, 5MP macro camera, and a 20MP front camera on top of the main lens.
On top of their top-of-the-line lenses, Xiaomi has also leveraged Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to bring your mobile photography skills to the next level. The new Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T phones come with six long exposure modes for the everyday photographer to capture stunning shots of moving water, light painting, and even star trails. Better yet, novel features like Photo clones and Timed Burst allow for endless fun as users get to experiment with new and innovative ways to up their social media game.
The video front hasn’t been neglected either, as Xiaomi introduces an ingenious Video Clone feature, allowing users to record from the device’s front and back cameras simultaneously. Video quality is stellar as well, allowing for shoots of up to industry standards of 4k at 60fps (frames per second), and even up to 8k at 30fps.
With Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation (MEMC) technology, the new smartphones also predict and insert additional frames into videos for smoother and better viewing.
Stunning camera and video quality would be nothing without a matching display to keep up with it. The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro therefore features one of the best flat displays available in the smartphone market today, with an industry-leading 144Hz AdaptiveSync TrueColour Display.
This means that the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro will automatically match the frame rate of whatever content is currently being displayed, ranging from a 50Hz refresh rate when watching a TV series, to a 144Hz refresh rate when gaming. This allows for a seamless experience during use while ensuring battery life is optimised.
The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro have also been designed with the user’s best interest at heart, equipped with a P3 colour gamut and TrueColour, the display offers a wide range of colours. They have also included a Reading Mode 3.0, which simulates a paper texture to protect your eyes, as well as the Sunlight display 3.0, which automatically adjusts the brightness and colours to suit any lighting condition.
Anchored by the flagship Qualcomm® Snapdragon 865TM , the two phones boast extreme power efficiency, performance, and 5G connectivity. For mobile gamers, the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro do not disappoint – they are both equipped with the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 650 GPU, UFS3.1 and LPDDR5, making them leading smartphones with the most impressive ROM and RAM available today.
Both the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro come equipped with one of Xiaomi’s biggest flagship series 5,000mAh (typ) batteries, allowing for a full-day of use with one full charge. Charging has also been optimised with a brand-new Middle Middle Tab (MMT) technology, allowing users to obtain a full charge in just one hour.
The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro will both come in two colours: Lunar Silver and Cosmic Black. The Mi 10T Pro will also come in an additional colour, Aurora Blue.
Both the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro feature a sleek 6.67-inch LCD display, with a fingerprint sensor mounted on the right edge. The two phones will also feature a USB-C port but without a headphone jack.
The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro will come fully equipped with all the necessary accessories, ensuring users need not purchase additional accessories. To keep users safe, Xiaomi has included screen protectors with a silver ion antibacterial coating for both the front and back displays. The phone will also come with a phone case that has a similar silver ion coating.
The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro are available from 14 November onwards and are priced at S$649 and S$749 respectively. They can be found in all major telecommunications partners, at Authorized Mi Stores, as well as official online channels such as Lazada, Shopee and Qoo10.
The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro will be launched in Lunar Silver and Cosmic Black first, with the Aurora Blue version of the Mi 10T Pro launching at a later date.
Early birds will also stand a chance to receive premium gifts and/or exclusive vouchers for purchases made during the first sale of the phone.
