In this regard, some netizens strongly believes that Xiaomi Mi 10 will increase its price. There are too many variables which points to the price increase. Some of the features which certainly raises its price are 

  • UFS 3.0
  • LPDDR5
  • 108MP camera
  • Snapdragon 865
  • 5G network
  • 90Hz Samsung curved screen

Interestingly, Lei Jun, Xiaomi’s CEO responded to a Weibo post, saying that “this time…I asked to lift the price constraint and focus on making the product better!”. This statement shows that the Xiaomi Mi 10 will first consider quality before the budget. 

When Lei Jun announced the establishment of the Redmi sub-brand, he said: “The purpose of an independent Redmi is for the company to develop in different directions. Xiaomi focuses on the mid-to-high-end market, while Redmi creates the ultimate price-performance devices.
