Five alive

Hold onto your hats, because Xiaomi has just introduced the world to the Mi Note 10, a new smartphone with a penta-camera setup built around a 108MP snapper. With five cameras on the back (a world first, apparently), it'd be fair to say the Mi Note 10 (called the Mi CC9 Pro in China) is a photographer's delight. Aside from that whopping 108MP main camera, the handset features a 20MP wide-angle shooter, 2MP macro lens, 12MP telephoto, and 5MP zoom lens. As if that holy quintuplet wasn't enough of a selling point, the phone is also powered by a Snapdragon 730G with an octa-core CPU, and around the front sports a curved 6.47in Super AMOLED display alongside a 32MP front-facing selfie cam. A fast-charging 5260mAh battery almost feels a touch underwhelming at this point, but it'll ensure the Mi Note 10 can be fully juiced in 65 minutes, which is mighty impressive in its own right. Price? The unit will see shelves at 2799 yuan (approx. ₹28,500), but there's no word of an international release as yet.
