A Xiaomi Mi 10i teaser page has gone live on Amazon India ahead of its launch. This indicates that the phone will be sold exclusively on the online platform, but the page also sheds some light on the device’s specs.
In a video teaser posted on the Amazon page, Xiaomi India’s Chief Manu Jain says that the i in Mi 10i stands for India, and the phone has been customized for India. He also mentioned that the Xiaomi Mi 10i will have a brand-new camera sensor, and a host of other customizations. While we are not sure what that means, scrolling down the page we found this image that says the phone features a 108MP camera.
The Xiaomi Mi 10i teaser page also reveals that the Xiaomi Mi 10i will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor, and that it supports 5G mobile networks. These specs align with our previous speculation, and we are convinced that the Xiaomi Mi 10i is a rebadged version of the Redmi Note 9 5G.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G retails for about Rs. 18,000 in China. We expect that Xiaomi has rebranded the phone as the Xiaomi Mi 10i in India, because the price could be higher than what Redmi phones cost in the Country. This way the company will avoid unnecessary attention from people complaining about a Redmi phone being too expensive.
We only have to wait until January 5th to see what the phone will be priced at.
