Yesterday, Xiaomi announced the Mi CC9 Pro in China as its latest premium smartphone offering its best camera performance (theoretically) and a very premium build. The leaks and rumours had suggested that Xiaomi was planning to bring this phone to the global markets as the continuation of the Mi Note series phones, and today, it did that in Spain. Xiaomi announced the Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro for Europe and these are essentially the same as the new Mi CC9 Pro variants from China.
Yes, the Mi Note 10 series is identical to the Mi CC9 Pro models, except for the names and slightly different pricing. The price is Euro 549 (approx. Rs 42,000) for the Mi Note 10 and Euro 649 (approx. Rs 51,000) for the Mi Note 10 Pro. The Mi Note 10 is the Mi CC9 Pro whereas the Mi Note 10 Pro is the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition.
So what’s different in the Mi Note 10 series? Virtually, nothing!
The Mi Note 10 has the same specs as the Mi CC9 Pro. That means the eyebrow-raising 108-megapixel main camera stays at the back with a 7P lens setup and the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor. This is accompanied by a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 5-megapixel telephoto camera with 5X optical zoom, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x zoom meant for portraits and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The macro camera can let you go as close as 1.5cm to the subject.
The Mi Note 10 Pro also has the same camera setup but instead if the 7P lens setup, it uses an 8P lens setup. And DxOMark has verified this camera’s performance with a score of 121. The front camera uses a 32-megapixel camera sitting inside the waterdrop notch.
The Mi Note 10 series comes as standard with the Snapdragon 730G chipset, which is essentially a tweaked version of the regular Snapdragon 730 and promises better gaming experience. The Mi Note 10 comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage as standard whereas the Pro variant gets 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. The phone runs on MIUI based on Android 9 Pie and comes with all the special AI-based features.
For the display, the Mi Note 10 series gets a 6.47-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and curved edges, similar to Samsung flagships. There’s also a new generation fingerprint scanner which Xiaomi says is 88 per cent thinner than before. With slightly more space, Xiaomi has been able to fit a bigger 5260mAh battery with 30W fast charging system.
The Mi Note 10 Pro series is available in three colours: Aurora Green, Glacier White and Midnight Black.
