After the launch of Redmi 9 Power, we were anticipating the other models to launch in India as well. Today, Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G in India. They have launched it as Mi 10i 5G in India. The Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G not only comes with impressive internals but a good price tag as well.
Mi 10i 5G Pricing & Availability in India
First, let’s talk about the pricing of Xiaomi Mi 10i. It is launched in three variants comprising of either 6/64GB, 6/128GB, and 8/128GB. They are priced at INR.20,999(~$286), INR.21,999(~$300), INR.23,999(~$327) respectively. It’s good that the tech giant has given a lot of choices for the consumer. Do note that initially, the 6/128 and 8/128 variants are available. The 64GB variant will come later sometime. There is a special opportunity for Amazon Prime users, they can grab the phone on the 7th of January. While it will be available on other Xiaomi official websites and Amazon websites starting from 8th January.
108MP Camera In A Mid-Range Smartphone
The 108-megapixel sensor on a mid-range phone? Whoa, we surely have come a long way. But this isn’t the only highlight of the phone. It also comes with a 5G high-performance chipset. It is using Snapdragon 750G, which is not just powerful but the 5G connectivity makes it future-proof. Coming to the display, it isn’t an OLED panel. This smartphone sticks to an IPS LCD panel. Although, there is a high refresh rate of 120Hz. The display has a size of 6.67-inch with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.
There is a quad-camera setup on the rear side. The primary sensor is a Samsung ISOCELL HM2 108-megapixel shooter while you will also get 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel macro, and 2-megapixel depth sensors. You can record videos up to 4K@30fps. On the front side, you will get a 16-megapixel selfie shooter resting in a punch hole notch.
Till now the device is looking great. A good chipset, good camera, so where is a compromise made? Well, I am also wondering. An IPS LCD panel will be a concern for those who are already using an AMOLED display. But don’t forget that is it is a mid-range smartphone. There is no compromise on build quality as well. There is a glass back that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
A 4820mAH is powering the phone that can be fast-charged at 30W. Other notable features include Stereo speakers and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. For now, this smartphone ticks most of the boxes. I would love to see your opinions on this device and the price it is launched at. I hope it gets launched in other markets as well.
