Xiaomi’s first phones with 144Hz display have arrived, it’s the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro. What’s interesting is that the LCD panel on both phones has an adaptive refresh rate that can change depending on the content. There are some presets as well: 48Hz for movies, 60Hz for regular videos, and 90Hz and 120Hz as well.
Starting off with that display, it measures 6.67-inch diagonally with a resolution of 1080p+ and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The screen support HDR10 content and peaks at 650 nits brightness. Protecting the front from nicks and scratches is a Gorilla Glass 5 layer; the back gets the same treatment. There’s no in-display fingerprint scanner here but rather it’s in the side, which is made up of aluminum alloy.
Powering both phones is a Snapdragon 865 chipset, while both phones boot on MIUI 12 based on Android 10. There’s no difference in the battery as well, as both phones come with a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
The difference, though, can be seen in terms of the camera. The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro brings a 108MP main camera with a 1/1.33″ sensor and 4-in-1 binning. This one has an f/1.7 lens with optical image stabilization (OIS). The perk of having a higher-MP camera is that you can shoot 8K videos at 30 fps from this phone.
Besides the main sensor, there’s a 13MP ultrawide camera with 123-degree FoV, 1.12 µm pixels, and f/2.4 aperture. The third one here is a 5MP macro lens that allows shooting from 2 cm to 10 cm distance.
For selfies, you have a 20MP camera inside the punch hole — it can capture HDR images, supports night mode, and 120 fps slow-mo video.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T, on the other hand, has almost the same camera specs expect its main camera, which is a 64MP 1/1.7″ sensor. This one has a bit dimmer f/1.9 lens and has no OIS. However, you can still record 8K videos. The rest of the camera specs are as same as the ‘Pro’ variant.
Both of these phones come with stereo speakers, Hi-Res Audio certification, and X-axis linear vibration motors for a better multimedia experience.
Camera differences aside, both devices come in different storage variants, and price. The Mi 10T Pro offers 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of storage, whereas the vanilla Mi 10T has 6GB of RAM or even 8GB, but with only one storage option of 128GB.
Of course, both support 5G, have WiFi 6, NFC, and the handy IR blaster.
As for the pricing, the vanilla Xiaomi Mi 10T starts at a price of €499 for the 6GB/128GB, whilst the 8GB RAM will cost €549. The Mi 10T Pro will go on sale for €599 for the 8GB/128GB variant, while for double the storage you’ll have to pay €649.
