The Mi 10 Pro comes in at Rs 50,500 for the base variant. Only time will tell, but Xiaomi phones are getting more and more popular, so it's possible.

Xiaomi Mi 10 price starts from RMB 3999, which is approximately Rs 40,910 in India. The new Mi 10 series was supposed to see a global launch at the MWC, but due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the world's mobile event has been canceled.

The Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro may hit Indian shores and that too soon enough.

If you're based in China, you can preorder these smartphones right now.

When is it out? It will be available for purchase in China on 18 February. Read on to find out everything about the Xiaomi Mi 10.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is available in three storage variants - 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage variant, priced at CNY 4,999 (approx Rs 50,000), 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant, priced at CNY 5,499 (approx Rs 55,000) and 12 GB RAM + 512 GB storage variant will cost you t CNY 5,999 (approx Rs 60,000).

Alongside the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, Xiaomi also unveiled a bunch of companion accessories including a snap-on air cooler (129 yuan) that should reduce the temperature by up to 10-degrees, a wireless charger+speaker combo (249 yuan), and 30W wireless charging stand (199 yuan) in China.

The regular Mi 10 has a lot of exciting stuff going for it. Xiaomi is offering a modern 6.67-inch AMOLED display that Xiaomi claims can go up to brightness levels of 1120 nits.

Later, however, he said Palestinians would not "resort to terrorism". "A leader who chooses rejectionism, incitement and glorification of terror can never be a real partner for peace".

On the back there's a camera bump in the top left corner, although the lenses spill off the bump and onto the flat of the body.

The display could impress many people.

We'll have to test the screen when we get our hands on these devices, but it seems pretty decent on paper. Mi 10, on the other hand, packs 108MP primary sensor, 13MP wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. You get an AI Pixel camera with an improved color palette and other features including Super Night mode, smooth zooming in videos, movie mode, and more. Thanks to the Snapdragon 865, the Mi 10 can record 8K videos from its camera. These specs seem rather middling, but we'll have to test out the phone before making a definitive statement on it. It's similar to the penta-camera Mi 10 Note that we tried out earlier a year ago.

Looking at the hardware, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro comes with a Snapdragon 865 SoC with 5G SA/NSA support. That chipset has an adjacent 5G modem, and it seems that both of the Xiaomi phones will be 5G phones as a result.

The Mi 10 packs a large 4,780mAh battery with 30W fast charging, while the Mi 10 Pro has a slightly smaller 4,500mAh battery with faster 50W fast charging.

Xiaomi's Mi 10 is powered by a 4,780mAh battery and has 30W wired fast charging support and 30W wireless fast charging support. The Mi 10 has these same stats except the standard charging is only 30W.

This camera system also enables the company to offer 10x hybrid optical zoom and 50x digital zoom on the Mi 10 Pro.
