Xiaomi announced the global version of its flagship smartphone "Mi 10" and "Mi 10 Pro" on March 27.
However, it is a model that has already been announced in China. The biggest topic this time is the price announced along with the release of the European version equipped with Google Play.
Xiaomi claims to be a "software and internet service company," but in his presentation he focused on explaining the hardware specifications of smartphones, excluding the camera function. It appealed that it has an advantage not only in price but also in specifications compared to competing models such as Galaxy S20 Ultra and iPhone 11 Pro.
The display is a 6.67 inch organic EL. The announcement emphasized that the punch-hole type in-camera is inconspicuous in reference to the iPhone and Galaxy S20, but has other features such as HDR 10+ support and 90Hz drive.
It also introduces the fact that the scale representing the display unevenness of the display is incredibly inaccurate, with a level of “プ ロ E 1.1 or less” comparable to a professional monitor.
Another unique appeal is that the left and right built-in stereo speakers are the same size. The stereo speakers of smartphones are often not arranged left and right evenly by diverting the speakers for calls, but Xiaomi will introduce that it can achieve a uniform sound by arranging them evenly on the left and right.
The main differences between the Mi 10 No Mark and Mi 10 Pro are the camera and battery. Among them, Mi 10 supports 30W fast charging and Mi 10 Pro supports 50W fast charging. Why is the included AC adapter equipped with a 65W charging compatible product that exceeds the terminal for the sake of Shaomi's mischief? [Because it is the USB A terminal of the included charger, it seems to be at least not versatile USB PD compatible] is].
The Mi 10 has a battery capacity of 4780mAh. For high-speed charging support, the battery of Mi 10 Pro is slightly less at 4500 mAh. In addition, it is equipped with the function of "wireless reverse charging" for charging Qi compatible devices from smartphones.

The chipset is equipped with Snapdragon 865, the memory is 6GB [latest LPDDR5 standard], and the storage is 256GB [latest UFS 3.0 standard].
In the announcement, we will introduce the chipset and standards that are compatible rather than specifications, such as the architecture of Snapdragon 865 and why Wi-Fi 6 is fast [explanation of OFDMA standard], as well as Wi-Fi 6 compatible router Announcement. For some reason, we have also announced a low-cost router that supports Wi-Fi 5 only.

▲ Appealing superiority by comparing specs that are too sketchy
Both cameras are built around a 100 million pixel [108MP] sensor, and feature the same 8K video shooting function as the Galaxy and AQUOS 5G models.
The 108MP sensor, jointly developed by Xiaomi and Samsung, is the second to be used in the Mi Note 10 series released in Japan, and features high-resolution photos and bright photos.
Most of the functions used in recent high-end smartphones, such as AI-based scene discrimination, Vlog video shooting, motion blur shooting, and super slow motion shooting at 960 fps, are roughly supported.
The Mi 10 / Mi 10 Pro are both quad camera specs, but differ in configuration other than the main 100 million pixel camera.
The Mi 10 is equipped with a 100MP camera, a 13MP super wide angle camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. Portraits and macros operate with a 100 million pixel camera supplemented by a sub camera.
The Mi 10 Pro is equipped with a 100MP camera, a 20MP super wide angle camera, a 12MP portrait camera, and an 8MP 10x zoom camera. With technologies such as pixel complement, digital zooms of 0.6x to 50x are possible.
■ Price is reasonable line
By the way, the price of the Mi 10 is 799 euros [about 95,000 yen], and the Mi 10 Pro is 999 euros [about 119,000 yen]. Certainly, it is cheaper than the competition, but it does not have a strong advantage and it is a reasonable line.
Xiaomi entered Japan in 2019 and has released the smartphone Mi Note 10 series to Japan. The sales channel at that time was "Small Start" only for Amazon.co.jp, but the actual results are actual. I would also like to expect the release of this new product Mi 10 / Mi 10 Pro in Japan.
However, products that are more noteworthy than the Mi 10 series already announced in China are also being announced at the same time. That is the low-cost version of “Mi 10 Lite 5G”. In Japan, au announces the world's first 5G service lineup as the first lineup, but it is a Xiaomi-like model that boasts the lowest price for a 5G smartphone.
