Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain has revealed that the upcoming Mi 10i 5G flagship smartphone will be launching in India with a brand new camera sensor. Jain also emphasised that the ‘I’ in Mi 10i stands for India and that the Mi 10i is tailored to suit Indian customers. The phone is set to launch on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. Here is all we know about the phone so far.
Xiaomi India also teased the Mi 10i 5G a few days ago on its Twitter handle. The brand’s teaser also hinted at the presence of a circular, quad-rear camera module. The teaser also hinted at a 108MP main sensor. The Mi 10i 5G will be the sixth entry in the Mi 10 series, which so far includes the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10 Lite, Mi 10 Ultra and Mi 10 Lite Zoom. However, not all of those phones were launched in India.
The Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G was also recently spotted on benchmarking website Geekbench with the model number M2007J17I. The phone was listed on the Geekbench website with 8GB RAM and an octa-core chipset. The phone bagged a score of 652 on single-core and 2,004 on multi-core and is expected to launch with Android 11 out of the box, likely topped with MIUI 12.5.
A recent Amazon India listing has also revealed that the Mi 10i 5G will be powered by the Snapdragon 750G processor. Other expected specifications include a 120Hz, 6.67-inch FHD+ LCD display, 16-megapixel front camera, 4,820mAh battery and 33W fast charging. More details should officially be teased in the next few days ahead of the phone’s January 5 launch date.
