It would seem that making Xiaomi’s smartphone lineup even more confusing is impossible. But the company did it.
At a presentation in Madrid, Xiaomi announced the Mi Note 10 smartphone. It is almost completely identical to the Mi CC9 Pro presented yesterday. Also showed the Note 10 Pro, but the differences between the three models are minimal.
The smartphone received a 6.47-inch curved Arc AMOLED display, curved around the edges. According to Xioami, it should ideally lie in the hand. A fingerprint is built into the screen – it was possible to make it thinner, while increasing the response area. The heart of the Note 10 and Note 10 Pro is the Snapdragon 730G, although many hoped for a Snapdragron 855 for Europe.
The main feature of the new items is the 5-module main camera. Three modules were taken to a separate island: this is the main 108 megapixel manufactured by Samsung, a 5 megapixel telephoto with support for 5x optical and 50x hybrid zoom, and a 12 megapixel portrait lens. Two more modules were separately located: a super wide 20 MP with a viewing angle of 117 ° and a macro lens 2 MP.
This camera provides a hybrid 50x zoom, and the main module at 108 megapixels allows you to shoot in a huge resolution of 12,032 x 9,024 pixels. Dual optical stabilization allows you to shoot clear videos, even if you do not have a stabilizer. You can remove it from your hands even in the harsh Russian winter! The front camera is 32-megapixel and allows you to take panoramic selfies.
A battery with a capacity of 5,260 mAh provides “up to two days” of battery life and supports fast charging. Through the 30 W adapter, which is included in the package, the smartphone is fully charged in 65 minutes. Out of the box, both models will run on MIUI 11 based on Android 9 Pie. Always On mode has appeared in this firmware version: the necessary widgets and notifications can now be seen even on a locked screen.
Now about the differences. The main difference is the amount of memory: regular Note 10 is available in the 6 + 128 GB modification, while the Note 10 Pro offers 8 + 256 GB. In addition, in the Mi Note 10 Pro, the camera is protected by 8-layer plastic, while in the usual Note 10 – only 7-layer.
