Xiaomi Mi 10i, a mid-range mobile that surprises with its 108-megapixel camera and 5G at a reasonable price

Xiaomi Mi 10i

Five days have passed in 2021 and we already have a new Xiaomi mobile in circulation: the Xiaomi Mi 10i. Or not so new since, in reality, it is an adaptation of the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite for the Indian market. Of course, with high-level hardware: Snapdragon 750G, FHD + screen with 120 Hz frequency, 108-megapixel rear camera, and much more.

The catalog of Xiaomi with regard to mobile could well be chaotic, especially if we try to consider the same time all phones distributed in the world. Models for all countries, some that stay in a specific territory and phones that change their name when crossing borders, as is the case with the recent Xiaomi Mi 10i. Known for design and features without losing appeal after being renamed.

Great balance of hardware at a fair price

There is no doubt that the Xiaomi Mi 10i is a phone that strictly follows the brand’s mantra: great features at a reasonable price. As with the Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite, the Mi 10i maintains a more than a solvent processor with support for 5G networks, the Snapdragon 750G. In addition, it comes with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

The screen of the new phone amounts to 6.67 inches. It is an IPS LCD panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate, 240 Hz touch response, FHD + resolution (2,400 x 1,080 pixels), and a hole for the 16-megapixel front camera. The fingerprint reader is located on the right side of the Xiaomi Mi 10i, on the power button.

In addition to the 16-megapixel front camera, the Xiaomi Mi 10i opts for a quadruple rear module in which the 108-megapixel main sensor stands out for its numerical superiority. This is complemented by an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and the usual ‘fill’ cameras: depth and macro, both 2 megapixels. The photographic cast is completed with the MIUI photographic app and all its modes included, from night to portrait.

The 5G is noticeable in the Xiaomi Mi 10i, also the 4,820 mAh battery and its 33 W fast charge. In addition, the phone includes stereo speakers, offers dual-band GPS and Galileo, infrared emitter, 3.5 mm jack, and NFC. The cast is completed with Android 10 and MIUI 12.
