Xiaomi shows no signs of stopping when it comes to rebranding. Today, the company has unveiled the Xiaomi Mi 10i, which is a rebranded Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G for the Indian market.
There’s little to no difference between two devices on paper, which is not a bad thing. The front of the Xiaomi Mi 10i has a 6.67-inch 1080p screen, which offers an adaptive refresh rate, meaning it goes up to 120Hz while gaming and goes right down to 30Hz when browsing or using the phone casually. There’s also HDR 10 support.
Inside the phone rocks a Snapdragon 750G chipset which brings 5G as well as Adreno 619 GPU. It’s paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage.
However, the crown jewel of the Xiaomi Mi 10i is the rear camera. We have a quad-camera setup with the main one being Samsung HM2 108MP sensor offering non-binning tech. Accompanying it is an 8MP ultra-wide shooter with 120-degree FoV, and the remaining two are a 2MP macro and depth shooter just there to make up for numbers. For selfies, there’s a 16MP camera put centrally inside the punch-hole.
To keep lights on, the Mi 10i has a 4,820mAh battery with split charging and 33W fast charging. Xiaomi says that the included charger can fill the phone’s battery to 68% in about half an hour.
Other noticeable yet handy feature includes a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, IP53 splash resistance, a 3.5mm headphone jack with dual stereo speakers, and an IR blaster for your convenience. Out of the box, the Mi 10i boots on MIUI 12.
