Xiaomi Mi 10/10 Pro Specification introduction

On the afternoon of February 13th, Xiaomi Technology held the first online live launch conference of its flagship series products, and officially released its new Xiaomi Mi 10 series.

For Mi Fan and Xiaomi, Xiaomi Mi 10 is a very important product. From the perspective of consumer, they urgently need Xiaomi to launch flagship models without obvious shortcomings in all aspects to carry the high-end banner, pinning the endless hope of consumer. For the Xiaomi company, after the Redmi brand successfully resisted the cost-effective banner, Xiaomi 10 must also assume the Xiaomi brand’s “upward” banner, further stabilize the market of more than 3,000 yuan (30,000₹ INR), and move towards the 4,000 yuan (40,000₹ INR) price segment.

Xiaomi Mi 10 series

According to Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, choosing to release the Xiaomi Mi 10 series online is a “difficult decision” and very difficult. You know, under the influence of this epidemic, Xiaomi’s challenge is not only in the press conference, but also in the supply chain preparation, factory capacity and subsequent sales logistics. But in the end, Xiaomi still had difficulties in customer service, and successfully released the Xiaomi 10 series.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 series is divided into Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. The two are completely the same in terms of appearance design, but there are some differences in some screen parameters, camera, battery and charging power. The former bears the heavy responsibility of taking the volume. The latter carried the banner of high-end flagship.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Review

Design: Hyperboloid screen + AG process

The Xiaomi 10 series uses a 6.67-inch hyperboloid screen design, and the rear case also uses a 2.5D design to ensure a grip.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is available in star blue and matte white. The rear shell is an AG matte appearance process. Compared with Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro, the texture of the Mi 10 Pro increases the haze and adjusts the roughness. It can also provide a more delicate feel. Effectively reduce fingerprint stains.

At the same time, the Mi 10 Pro body uses Corning’s fifth-generation Gorilla Glass, which is more wear-resistant and can effectively reduce the damage caused by accidental drops.

A 65W charger is standard, but the Mi 10 Pro supports up to 50W wired fast charging.

Compared with the original 45W charger of Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro, it is a lot bigger. Both chargers are USB-A ports. I don’t know when Xiaomi will be equipped with a more versatile C-port charger in the future.

The four camera on the back are arranged in a vertical row of 3 + 1, and the bottom is an LED fill light. In addition to the dual color temperature LED lights inside the fill light, there is also an independent light sensor.

In other words, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro uses a dual light sensor design. The official claims that this can be judged by the integration of the dual light sources on the front and back of the fuselage, which greatly improves the accuracy of the light sensor, can effectively avoid errors in special scenarios, and provides more accuracy. 2, delicate screen brightness adjustment.

And at low brightness, the automatic adjustment is smoother and more delicate, greatly reducing the jumping sense of brightness change, and the reading experience at night will be better.

The front camera aperture is not large, and the film is standard. Is this the first Xiaomi flagship mobile phone with a film?

In addition to the noise-cancelling microphone and infrared cutout at the top, there is also a separate speaker, the same size as the bottom speaker.

The SIM card slot is located at the bottom of the fuselage. It seems that this is also the first Xiaomi phone with a SIM card slot at the bottom?

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro does not provide an independent voice button this time. You can control Xiaoai assistant through the power button or voice.

Operating System: Smoother MIUI 11

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is equipped with the MIUI 11 system based on Android 10, and the file system uses F2FS. This file system is more friendly to random reading and writing, and can theoretically improve system fluency.

The most obvious change in the system settings is the addition of a screen refresh rate setting. Users can freely switch between 60Hz and 90Hz.

For users who do not like the punch screen, you can choose to hide the bangs function. The system provides a total of three modes to choose from.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro added a video toolbox function to the system this time. After setting the app that uses the toolbox, opening the corresponding app toolbox will automatically start.

The video toolbox provides functions such as image style adjustment, sound enhancement, picture quality improvement, screen recording, screen capture, and screen projection. It is expected that this function will be available on other models in the future.

Performance: Snapdragon 865 + LPDDR5 + UFS 3.0 flagship standard

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is equipped with Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, built-in 8/12GB LPDDR5 memory and 256GB UFS 3.0 flash memory, which can be said to be the standard configuration of flagship mobile phones in the first half of 2020.

Measured, the continuous reading and writing speeds of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 8+256GB version reached 1637.9MB/s and 726.64MB/s, respectively, and the random reading and writing speeds also exceeded 200MB/s. It can be said that this is the Xiaomi with the best storage performance in history. Mobile phones are also excellent in the entire Android phone.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Antutu Benchmark; In terms of running points, as Antutu V8 added support for high refresh rate screens, we performed running points at 60Hz and 90Hz refresh rates respectively, and the final scores were 562345 and 565594 respectively.

The refresh rate mainly affects the UX score. The UX score at 60Hz is 75910 and the 90Hz is 80527. The gap is close to 5000 points.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Camera Review: 108MP Quad Camera

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is equipped with a custom 20-megapixel ultra-miniature front-facing camera. The module is a patented design of Xiaomi. It supports a large and wide-angle panoramic photography mode, but requires a mobile phone to take three consecutive pictures and the system automatically synthesizes them.

The rear camera is a four-camera design, including the Samsung HMX main camera of 1/1.33 inch 108 megapixels, super telephoto lens, portrait lens and ultra wide-angle lens.

The 108 megapixel main camera aperture is F/1.69, equipped with an 8P lens, and supports OIS optical image stabilization. The ultra-telephoto lens supports 10x optical hybrid zoom and up to 50x digital zoom. It also supports OIS optical image stabilization. It is claimed to effectively reduce the slight shake of the hand when shooting with an ultra-telephoto lens, which causes the image to shake violently.

The ultra-wide-angle lens has 20 Megapixel, and the wide-angle can reach 117 degrees. At the same time, it supports AI ultra-wide-angle distortion correction function, which can eliminate distortion when taking pictures of landscapes and portraits.

The portrait lens has 12 megapixel, a pixel size of 1.4 μm, supports Dual PD dual-core focusing, and a focal length of 50mm. This is a classic configuration that has been retained in recent generations of Xiaomi mobile phones. There is no need to worry too much about polishing the imaging effect.

At the same time, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro supports the laser focus function, which is more accurate for night shooting. It can also monitor the color temperature of the ambient light in real time, making the photo white balance more accurate.

In terms of software features, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro supports Super Night Scene 2.0. The night scene optimization algorithm based on the RAW domain obtains more dark information. It is said that the night scene is photographed without highlights, dark noise and richer details.

In terms of video, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has added a Vlog mode, built-in multiple sets of Vlog templates, and supports automatic mirror movement, transition, soundtrack, and real-time voice subtitles.

In addition, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro also supports real-time video blurring, which can capture background blurry video pictures that highlight portraits, while supporting blurring adjustment.

From the photos taken at hand, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is satisfied with the zoom performance. In addition, the pictures taken at each focal length are excellent in white balance and there is not much difference. Although it is a rainy day, the magic can still have a very natural effect after another day.

Charging and endurance

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro uses a 4500mAh single-cell battery, which supports 50W wired fast charging, 30W wireless fast charging, and 10W reverse charging.

Among them, the wired fast charging power has increased by 5W compared to the Xiaomi 9 Pro. The wireless fast charging and reverse charging have not changed, and the overall improvement is not large. However, considering single-cell batteries, 50W fast charging has basically reached its limit, and it can be said that both the battery capacity and the charging speed are taken into account.

According to Xiaomi, when using the original charger, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro can charge the battery to 100% in 45 minutes. It uses a single-cell dual charge pump solution (the conversion rate exceeds 97%). The large voltage is converted into a low voltage acceptable by the two batteries for charging by half-voltage direct charging.

In addition, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro uses the new MI-FC fast charging technology, which can monitor the cell voltage in real time during the charging process. Under the premise of ensuring safety, by increasing the duration of high-power charging, reducing inefficient charging in the second half duration, which in turn reduces charging time.

According to the actual measurement, it starts to charge from 2%, and it charges to 100% in 42 minutes, which is consistent with the official statement that it takes 45 minutes to reach 100%.

Xiaomi 10 Pro charging speed test

In terms of battery life, in the case of a single card, connected Wi-Fi, 90Hz refresh rate, and automatic brightness of the system, watching an hour of video using iQiyi consumes 10% of power and 15 minutes of “Peace Elite” (highest quality) consumes 5% 15 minutes of “Glory of the King” (high frame rate mode) consumes 4% of power, 15 minutes of Antutu stress test consumes 8% of power.

Overall, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro equipped with the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform and turned on the 90Hz refresh rate did not appear to have a “blood collapse”, which is due to the large 4500mAh battery.

Summary: Ten years of true flagship

As Lei Jun said, “Life can be affected by the epidemic, but we will never be defeated by the epidemic.” Xiaomi 10 is not only of great significance to Xiaomi. It also needs such a booster for the entire industry, proving that the mobile phone industry has never been defeated by the epidemic, and it is still capable of organizing the production of a flagship model, and the normal release and listing.

In terms of hardware configuration, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has indeed achieved the top level in the industry. It is equipped with the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform and comes standard with LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.0 flash memory. It can be said that it is standard equipment for 2020 flagship mobile phones.

Of course, the disadvantage is that the resolution of the entire Mi 10 series stays at the FHD level, and the refresh rate has not reached 120Hz. This is still a certain distance from the real Android phone emperor. However, from the perspective of user experience, the FHD + 90Hz refresh rate is sufficient to meet user needs. Higher resolutions and refresh rates are bound to affect battery life. The cost is naturally higher, which will further affect the final price.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Series Price And Storage Options

As for the price, when netizens guessed that starting at 2999, the starting price of 3999 was a bit shocking. But if you think about it, the use of better hardware will naturally bring higher costs, and it will inevitably increase the price. The price / performance ratio has always been relative, and we can’t expect Xiaomi to stick to a price range like 1999/2999. Even if Xiaomi is willing to lose money, it will not be able to make a product that stands out. And Xiaomi 10 broke the shackles of cost performance this time and finally submitted a satisfactory answer sheet.
