Xiaomi originally planned to launch its Mi 10 series of smartphones at MWC 2020. However, due to the cancellation of the convention, the company just like many other brands had to delay the launch of the smartphone series. The wait is finally over as Xiaomi announced the Mi 10 series today via a global livestream in Europe. In the series, the company launched three phones: Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro and Mi 10 Lite, an affordable smartphone for the masses.
Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro: Price, availability
The new Xiaomi Mi 10 is priced at Euro 799 (approximately Rs 66,350) for the 8GB RAM/128GB storage variant. Whereas, the Mi 10 Pro is priced at Euro 999 (approximately Rs 82,921) for the 8GB RAM/256GB storage variant. Both the devices will go on sale in Europe starting April 15.
The Mi 10 Lite is priced at Euro 350 (approximately Rs 29,180) for the 64GB storage variant. The 128GB variant is priced at Euro 400 (approximately Rs 33,201).
Xiaomi hasn’t announced when these phones will go on sale. Given the current situation, we can expect the sales to delay quite a bit. The Chinese brand was expected to launch the Mi 10 in India on March 30 but given India is under 21 days lockdown the launch has been postponed. The new launch date hasn’t been announced yet.
