Xiaomi Mi Note 10, Mi Note 10 Pro Launched; More Expensive Versions of the Penta-Lens Mi CC9 Pro, but for Overseas Markets


Xiaomi has now unveiled the international version of the Mi CC9 Pro that was revealed in China yesterday, but there’s a little something different here. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has unveiled the Mi Note 10 as well as the Mi Note 10 Pro for overseas markets and just like the Mi CC9 Pro, both feature a 108MP primary sensor, along with a penta-lens camera setup.

Only Differences Between the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro Is an Increase in RAM, Bumping up the Internal Storage, and Use of a Different Lens

Both the Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro feature a 6.47-inch curved OLED display with an embedded fingerprint reader and a waterdrop notch. The phone is fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, so it’s not exactly a flagship and it would have been better had both devices shipped with a Snapdragon 855 at the very least. So, while the handset might not be a heavy hitter when it comes to performance, its camera specifications are rather impressive.

The Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition, which will seemingly be known as the Mi Note 10 Pro in the West, has already received the highest overall camera rating from DxOMark, tying with the Mate 30 Pro. As for the differences between the Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro; the Mi Note 10 will be offered at a cheaper price as it ships with 6GB RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. However, it features a 7P lens, unlike the 8P lens featured on the Mi Note 10 Pro. The Mi Note 10 Pro also features 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Other than that, you get that impressive penta-lens camera system that we were talking about earlier, along with 30W fast-charging support and a generous 5260mAh battery. Sadly, there’s no Qi wireless charging support on the Mi Note 10 or the Mi Note 10 Pro.

Xiaomi Mi Note 10, Mi Note 10 Pro Official Release, Available Colors & Pricing Details

Both models will go on sale in various European regions this month and color options include Glacier White, Aurora Green, and Midnight Black. As for pricing, the Mi Note 10 will set you back €549 or around $608 (currently offered on a $100 discount) while the Mi Note 10 Pro will cost €649, or roughly $719. While that’s not exactly affordable for a phone with mid-tier specifications, the camera prowess make them seem justifiable for a lot of customers.
