Xiaomi has released the Mi 10T Pro, its latest flagship smartphone. The two major specs on the Mi 10T Pro are its battery and screen. It uses a 6.67-inch 1080p 20:9 LCD with a refresh rate of 144Hz. That refresh rate is similar to that of a high-end gaming monitor, and until now it’s mostly only been found on gaming-focused smartphones, making this the most mainstream phone yet to achieve it. This goes to show the level of integration and user experience Xiaomi is aiming for with this device.
The battery, Xiaomi has managed to fit a 5,000mAh pack into the Mi 10T Pro, which is well ahead of most of the other flagship devices. The phone is definitely a little thicker than the Mi 10 Pro, at 9.33mm vs 9mm, it would not be considered as a sleek device by today’s standards, but at 218g it’s not excessively bulky.
The rest of the spec sheet is fairly standard for a phone aiming to provide high performance at what is presumably a relatively low cost. There’s a Snapdragon 865 processor, the requisite 5G modem, 8GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of storage, a solid haptic feedback system, stereo speakers, and a 20-megapixel hole-punch selfie camera.
The Mi 10T Pro has a pretty huge camera bump. There’s a 108-megapixel primary sensor, as on the Mi 10 Pro, but here the lens is housed in a large unit that stretches across the double-wide bump. The four smaller modules below are a 13-megapixel ultrawide, a 5-megapixel macro camera, an LED flash, and — as far as I can tell — a non-functional component to keep things looking symmetrical.
Compared to the Mi 10 Pro, the Mi 10T Pro misses out on a sleeker design, thinner bezels, a curved OLED panel, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a versatile quad camera system with two telephoto lenses plus the ultrawide. On the other hand, the 10T Pro beats the 10 Pro on screen refresh rate and battery capacity.
