Highlights

  • The Mi 10 launch for global markets has been delayed.
  • The Mi 10 was launched in China yesterday as Xiaomi's 2020 flagship.
  • The Mi 10 Pro has bagged the top DxOMark score of 124.

The Mi 10 from Xiaomi is the next big flagship phone in the world of premium smartphones and Xiaomi has big plans for the Mi 10. Not only will the Mi 10 be launched in China, but Xiaomi is considering the Mi 10 for global markets in Europe as well as India after a long time. However, Xiaomi had a less glamorous launch event for the Mi 10 in China due to the Coronavirus epidemic and in the continued effect of that, the global launch of the phone will be delayed.

After the GSMA cancelled the MWC 2020 in Barcelona keeping in view the impending Coronavirus epidemic that has claimed a lot of lives in China, Xiaomi took to its social media channel to announce that it will also be delaying its Mi 10 global launch. Xiaomi says that it is concerned for its employees, partners, media friends and guests, and hence, has cancelled the event for now. The launch was originally supposed to take place on February 23, a day before the MWC 2020 was supposed to start.

The Coronavirus epidemic led many companies to pull out from the MWC 2020. Major names such as Sony, Amazon, Nokia, LG and others had pulled out of the MWC. Most of these companies might end upholding their own launch events at a later date after the epidemic is under control. The only company to undergo an official launch during the epidemic was Samsung which unveiled its Galaxy S20 series in San Francisco.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 has a lot riding on its shoulders as Xiaomi is willing to take its flagship game to the next level. Xiaomi wants to play in the same space as OnePlus and Samsung this year and the Mi 10 has a couple of stuff to prove that intention. The Mi 10 gets a high refresh rate display like the modern flagship smartphones but unlike the trendy 120Hz, the Mi 10 is limited to 90Hz. That said, the AMOLED panel comes with a better JNCD rating of <0.55, beating the iPhone 11 Pro.

Xiaomi is also relaying on the Snapdragon 865 chipset that also brings support for 5G networks. The Mi 10 also gets large 4780mAh battery with support for 30W fast wired and wireless charging. The Mi 10 also gets a 108-megapixel main camera and on the Mi 10 Pro, it manages to achieve a DxOMark score of 124.
