Yesterday, Xiaomi unveiled the CC9 Pro, the first phone to use the 108-megapixel image sensor that the company has developed with Samsung. The CC9 Pro is not sold outside of China, but today Xiaomi announces that an almost identical phone, the Mi Note 10, will be sold.
The Mi Note 10 is unveiled today in Spain and is likely to reach the UK, other European countries and India. There seems to be no difference in the hardware, but as you would expect, the Note 10 MIUI will run on Google-approved Android, with the CC9 Pro using Xiaomi & # 39; s proprietary apps and services in China.
Xiaomi often gives its products different names and release schedules around the world – just look at the story of the excellent but confusing Mi 9T / Redmi K20 / Redmi K20 Pro / Mi 9T Pro lineup. This time, the two phones are announced at least one day in succession.
Here are the most important specifications, as a reminder:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor
- 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage
- Five rear cameras: 108-megapixel f / 1.69 wide, 12-megapixel f / 2 2x telephoto, 5-megapixel f / 2 5x telephoto, 20-megapixel f / 2.2 ultrawide and 2-megapixel macro
- Selfie camera of 32 megapixels
- 6.47-inch curved OLED screen with integrated fingerprint sensor
- 5,260 mAh battery with 30W fast charger included
- USB-C and headphone connection
The Mi Note 10 will not be as fast as flagships with a Snapdragon 855 – the Redmi K20 Pro included – but otherwise it sounds like a pretty exciting phone, and we are certainly looking forward to seeing the camera. While the CC9 Pro starts at around $ 400 in China, the Mi Note 10 costs a price of 549 euros. However, it is not clear when and where the Mi Note 10 will be available.
