Xiaomi has officially launched its Mi 10 series of smartphones, comprising the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.
If you’re not familiar with Xiaomi’s ‘Mi’ line of phones, the handsets that made up the previous generation were outstanding, earning rave reviews across the board thanks to their high-end specs and reasonable prices.
Read on for all you need to know about Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, including release date, price and specs.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro release date
Xiaomi has officially only launched the Mi 10 Pro in China, where it will go on sale on February 18 (via GSMArena).
It isn’t yet clear when it will launch in western markets, but Xiaomi had planned to unveil it at an event at MWC, before the show’s cancellation.
The Chinese firm has since confirmed that it will push the Mi 10 Pro’s European launch back.

There are several different configurations to choose from, all of which differ in price. Here’s how much the Mi 10 Pro will cost in China:
- Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage: 4,999 yuan (~£550)

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro specs and features
The Mi 10 Pro’s headline feature is its 108-megapixel camera. It’s one part of a four-sensor setup, the other three being a telephoto lens with up to 10x hybrid zoom, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 20-megapixel ultra-wide lens.
As we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S20 range, there’s also 8K video recording.
For selfies, the Mi 10 Pro uses a 20-megapixel sensor, which sits inside a circular cutout in the top-left corner of the otherwise notchless screen.
The screen itself uses an OLED panel and measures 6.67 inches. It has a 2340 x 1080 resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support.
Inside is Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset, which means the Mi 10 Pro supports 5G, and a 4500mAh battery that supports 50W fast-charging, 30W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging.
As mentioned above, the Mi 10 Pro has only launched in China, so we haven’t yet had a chance to use the phone. However, the Xiaomi Mi 9 range that came before it was exceptional and, at least on paper, the Mi 10 Pro sounds like it could well be another belter from Xiaomi.
