Over the past few years, we have been seeing smartphone makers pushing the boundaries of what a phone camera should be. The latest such smartphone is Xiaomi's 108-megapixel beast, the Mi Note 10, and soon, it will launch in India.
In India, the company has quite a dedicated fan base. However, the Mi Note 10 is likely to be priced rather competitively, so we'll have to wait and see how it performs in the market. The phone is one of the most exciting ones we have seen this year and we're looking forward to the launch.
Before we get into the beastly specifications of the camera module, we must talk about the look of this phone. At the front, it's got a 6.47-inch curved edge display, that blends the side bezels with the screen itself. Apart from that, the top of the phone houses a water drop style notch and a minimal bottom bezel.
At the back, the phone has a huge glass panel that shines and showcases a variety of different colours when the right amount of light is thrown on it. This ombre design seems to be the norm these days.
Though the camera on this smartphone steals most of the limelight, the phone has good under the hood specifications as well.
For one, the smartphone has got a Snapdragon 730G chipset, which is one of the latest models of the lineup. Paired with a 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage, the phone has a lot to offer in terms of performance and gaming capability.
This is where the phone really shines and outdoes not only itself, but the competition as well. Packing in a total of five rear cameras, the phone has some tricks up its sleeve. The primary sensor is the headliner of this phone- the 108-megapixel camera. Apart from that, the four other lenses work in tandem to give you the best possible results.
The dedicated lens for portrait mode shots is a 12-megapixel shooter, which is complemented by another 5-megapixel telephoto lens. For taking those wide angle shots, you've got the 20-megapixel 177o camera. Ultra wide cameras are increasingly gaining popularity and we're glad that this monster of a phone has one too. Finally, there's a 2-megapixel macro camera for when you really want to get under the skin of your subject.
Xiaomi phones are known for having a well performing software with frequent updates and this phone is no different. The phone runs on the latest Android 10 OS with the MiUI skin. As for the battery, the phone has a massive 5260mAH power brick. This should make for long days of usage, no matter what your usage.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 seems to be getting off on a right start. The phone has sold quite a few units in China and now that it is finally coming to India, we can get to see the phone in its entirety. As of now, there is no word on when the phone will come out in India, but we can expect it to be out by the next month.
