The Mi 10 5G is the more affordable version of the more premium Mi 10 Pro and still retains the 108MP main camera, 90Hz AMOLED display and Snapdragon 865 chipset. It does lose out on the telephoto modules and comes with a smaller 4,780 mAh battery with 30W fast wired charging.
Mi 10 pro also launching at may 8th?
By the most current account from Canalys, Chinese smartphones account for nearly 80% smartphone sale in India. What does that tell you about India and Indians?
Because snapdragon 865 has 5g modem in-built. The chipset includes 5g. So, they have no choice.
