Xiaomi comes with discounted Mi 10T phones – News

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi launches its new flagship in our country. The Mi 10T Pro is a whopper of a device, while its two smaller brothers should bring 5G to a wide market.

The Mi 10T series consists of three phones, the Mi 10T Pro, Mi 10T and Mi 10T Lite. The most expensive of these, the 10T Pro, is considered the new flagship of the brand. Each of the devices is equipped with 5G, something we now expect from most new phones. Relevant for this year, they also all come with an antibacterial case.

From Mi 10T to Mi 10T Pro

The sturdiest device in the series is the Mi 10T Pro, a very large device with a screen diagonal of 6.67 inches, comparable to the OnePlus 7Pro (and a whole series of other Xiaomi phones). Pro has a 5,000 mAh battery, which makes it very durable, but also feels a bit heavier than many other large phones we’ve already got our hands on, 214.5g to be exact. In addition, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 under the hood, one of the new 5G mobile chips. Xiaomi opted for a wide range of 5G bands to remain compatible with a wide range of networks.

The main unique point about this device is the camera that sticks out a bit at the back and that goes up to 108MP. This is one of three cameras, in addition to a 13MP ultra-wide angle lens and a 5MP macro camera. At the front, there’s another 20MP one for… particularly large selfies. There is also support for 8K video on the screen. The latter supports a resolution of 2400×1080 FHD+, at a refresh rate of 144Hz. We also see a fingerprint sensor on the right, which doubles as the power button. That’s a bit clumsy for left-handers, who usually don’t put their thumb in that spot, but the sensor also seems to work with an index finger in a short test.

The Mi 10T looks more or less the same, but with slightly different colors, and a main camera that goes up to ‘only’ 64MP. Striking with these two devices is the price. Xiaomi mainly bets on solid hardware specs for a cheaper price than many competitors. The Mi 10T Pro will be on the market for €599 (8GB+128GB of storage) or €649 (8GB+256GB version). That is a lot lower than many comparable devices. For the Mi 10T, the price is 499 euros, for the variant with 6GB+128GB of storage.

The Mi 10T Lite is then the little brother in this series, a device for the middle segment. Xiaomi is proud that it is bringing 5G to the broad market with this. The device has a Snapdragon 750G chip on board, making it one of the first devices to use this slightly cheaper Qualcomm 5G chip. The specs are also slightly lower than with its bigger brothers, with, for example, a (still quite fast) 120Hz display, somewhat more sober cameras and a battery of 4,820 mAh. But the device is available in our country for 279 euros for the version with 6GB + 64GB storage.

Because it is 2020, Xiaomi is also launching a smartwatch at the same time, the simply named Mi Watch. It is the first smart watch that Xiaomi brings to the international market and the device is waterproof, with a bright 1.39” AMOLED screen and the well-known health functions and digital assists on board. Xiaomi also claims that the battery lasts up to 16 days. This one is also available for a competitive price, for 99 euros.

Xiaomi is the fourth largest smartphone maker in the world, behind Samsung, Huawei and Apple. It mainly does business in Asia, and has only really been active on the Belgian market since last year. The manufacturer mainly focuses on striking hardware for a price that is often a lot lower than many competitors. The company has no problems with all kinds of governments, such as Huawei, so that it can still work neatly with the Googles and Qualcomms of this world. It has already faced privacy scandals.
