Hundredmegapixel Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro

Xiaomi introduced a new generation of itsMi's flagship family represented by Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro models. And it’s immediately clear who is now marking Samsung’s main competitors: these are also models on the top Snapdragon 865 and also with a 108-megapixel camera - both of which. Well, the rest, perhaps, the pipe is lower, the smoke is thinner, but the prices are not so high. True, it’s still not cheap, the price for the younger modification of the smaller model is 3999 yuan ($ 572 / € 526 / 36160₽).

The displays also feature exceptional brightness of up to 1200 nits, brightness settings offering 4096 levels, and DC dimming support for eye protection.

Both smartphones boast a solida battery with support for fast wireless charging of 30 W and reverse charging of 10 W, and for Xiaomi Mi 10 it is even more capacious - 4780 mAh versus 4500 mAh for Mi 10 Pro. But with the help of a wired charger, the Mi 10 Pro charges faster - it supports 50 W, the younger model is satisfied with 30 W.

Of the curious features previously not observed in the Mi lineup, stereo speakers and as many as two light sensors can be noted.

The special pride of devices - and first of all, XiaomiMi 10 Pro, which has already received the title of smartphone with the coolest camera in the world from DxOMark's bounty (steeper than the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, has not been compared with the new Samsung’s yet) - its photo block. It consists of four cameras:

  • 108 MP, aperture f / 1.69, matrix size 1 / 1.33 ″, optical stabilization
  • 20 MP wide-angle f / 2.2, 117 °
  • 12 MP, telephoto camera, f / 2.0, matrix size 1 / 2.60 ″, 1.40μm (gives a twofold increase)
  • 8 MP, telephoto camera, f / 2.0, matrix size 1 / 4.40 ″, 1.00μm, optical stabilization (gives a five-fold increase)

Together, this company is capable of zooming up to 50x.

Front camera 20 MP.

The audio path of the model has also undergone DxOMark testing - here the results are also recognized as outstanding. Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro earned the highest rating of all tested DxOMark models.

For Xiaomi Mi 10, the camera set was somewhat simplified, although they did not begin to remove 108 MP:

  • 108 MP, aperture f / 1.69, matrix size 1 / 1.33 ″, optical stabilization
  • 13 MP, wide angle, f / 2.4, 123 °
  • 2 MP, depth sensor, f / 2.4
  • 2 MP, macro, f / 2.4

A depth and macro sensor appeared, but telephoto cameras disappeared. The wide-angle has also changed: the resolution is lower, the aperture is smaller, but the angle is wider.
