Xiaomi Mi 10 - top flagship for 2020. Snapdragon 865, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, 6.67" SuperAMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, four rear cameras (108MPx + 13MPx + 2x2 Mpx), shooting up to 8K video, 20MPx selfie camera, support for 5G and WiFi 6 networks, 4780mAh battery with 30W fast charging (wireless and wired), Android 10 with MIUI 12 in all languages (Android 11 in Q4 2020)
Xiaomi Mi 10 is a phone without compromise. The state-of-the-art Qualcomm Snappdragon 865 processor and 8GB of RAM will ensure excess performance for many years to come. The display now offers a 90Hz refresh rate (normally 60Hz), working with the phone is so much smoother and you have the feeling that the phone is just "going", nothing is expected, nothing even jams under your fingers. Some phones already offer 120Hz and above, but the difference between the standard 60Hz and 90Hz is the most noticeable.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 - power, power, power
Treat yourself to the best. No compromises. This year, the manufacturers are trying to tell you that you no longer need the best processor, and something from the middle class is enough. We do not agree. The top Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 brings a huge portion of performance that will be above standard even in a few years. Or do you want to change your phone every year?
Compared to the previous Snapdragon 855, for example from the Mi 9 model, it brings up to 25% higher performance and 25% lower consumption. Such an important fifth-generation AI Engine will offer up to twice the performance between generations. If you suffer from synthetic tests, the AnTuT rating jumped by some 33%.
However, performance is not just about the processor. Even memories accelerated between generations. RAM has stopped at 8GB and in the LPDDR5 specification it is up to 29% faster than last year's Mi 9 *. The same percentage improvement applies to storage, which also offers the new UFS 3.0 specification and throughput of up to 44GB / s. *
(* Tests performed in Xiaomi Laboratories compared to UFS 2.1 and LPDDR4X)
Xiaomi Mi 10 brings support for fifth generation networks. That we don't need it? We disagree. Pilot operation of the 5G networks at O2 and Vodafone will be launched in several cities in the Czech Republic, including Prague, by the end of 2020. You can be one of the first to try the new network without limits, within your plan. In Hungary you can try 5G at Magyar Telekom network in Budapest. In Romania you can enjoy full 5G coverage at Orange network in Bucharest.
Another new feature is WiFi 6 support, or if you want 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax. The maximum throughput is 9.6Gb/s, which is 270% more than the previous generation. It supports OFDMA and 8x8 MU-MIMO technologies, allowing simultaneous connection of multiple devices at once while maintaining a stable high speed.
The MultiLink function enables the connection of the Mi 10 to 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 4G / 5G WiFi networks at the same time, which again ensures an undisturbed fast connection to the world.
We are pushing the limits in digital photography
The state-of-the-art 108MPx camera together with the Qualcomm Spectra 480 chip and AI optimizations literally work wonders. The seven-cell optics provide plenty of light, and the f/1.7 aperture is excellent, and the camera also has optical image stabilization. However, mobile photography today is no longer just about hardware. The new AI 2.0 technology based on machine learning photography then improves the software for the best possible result. Thus, although the hardware is the same as the cheaper Mi Note 10, thanks to the extremely powerful processor and artificial intelligence, the resulting photo from the Mi 10 will be better. Photos are compressed into a lossless HEIF format, which saves up to 40% of storage space.
We must not forget the 13MPx wide-angle camera with an angle of view of 123° and an aperture of f/2.4. It will come in handy especially for taking photos of large objects that do not fit into your normal shot, or for taking photos of common photos.
8K Ultra HD Video Camera
Xiaomi Mi 10 will also serve well as a top camera. It allows you to shoot up to 8K video at 30fps, or the more common 4K video at 30 and 60fps. In addition to optics, stereo microphones and a special Pro mode come in handy, in which you can set up a wide range of functions in detail. You can independently set for example AE and AF Lock (lock exposure and focus point), manually set focus points, set video stabilization, or then adjust the video using ready-made filters, real-time background blur, etc.
90Hz 6,67" AMOLED display
The best display Xiaomi has ever offered in a mobile phone. The huge 6.67 "AMOLED display boasts a few innovations. The most important is the 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz sampling rate. That everything moves right under your fingertips. No delay. It comes in handy not only when playing games, but also when browsing the Internet, the difference is noticeable.
But it's not just about speed. The display has a contrast of 5,000,000:1, a P3 color gamut, HDR 10+ support, a maximum brightness of up to 1200 nits and a top color accuracy of △ E <1.1, which you will especially appreciate when watching videos and photos.
The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, which extends to the edges and fills almost the entire front of the phone, with only a minimal frame at the top and bottom. The selfie camera is located in a modern small "dot" at the top left.
Two days battery life
The previous Mi 9 model was criticized for low battery capacity, this time Xiaomi made it right. The huge battery with a 4780mAh capacity will last without any problems all day of intensive work or two days of normal activity. In the package you will find a 30W charger, which charges the phone to 100% in about an hour. The phone also supports wireless Qi charging, also at speeds up to 30W. The specialty is then reverse charging up to 5W. You can charge your headphones wirelessly. Just attach them to the back of the phone and recharge them while sitting in a restaurant where you don't have any cables with you.
Mi 10 brings a lot of other features. Let's introduce them briefly.
Stereo speakers - Mi 10 brings two speakers, one on the top and bottom edge. Not the usual phone speaker is used, but a really separate speaker on the top edge of the phone. Playing videos and music will be a real experience.
Infrared port - even the flagship does not have to give up the infrared port. Conveniences we know from past generations. This makes it easy to control home electronics without having to constantly look for remote controls.
