It’s a long way to go until we start wine tasting 5G speeds with 5G networks in India, but that’s not deterring Chinese brands from launching future-proof 5G ready smartphones today. More importantly, this is Xiaomi’s comeback to the premium smartphone segment after the classy-looking Mi Mix 3 that was launched in India back in 2017. Three years later, plenty has changed and the new Mi 10 5G hauls in plenty of new hardware. There’s a 6.67-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display that’s pretty good for gaming as well with a 90Hz refresh rate. Inside, you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB RAM and storage options. However, it’s the camera that’s the highlight here with a 108MP sensor (kind of like Samsung’s ultra-pricey Ultra) + 13MP (tele) + 2MP (macro) and a  2MP sensor for checking depth. On the front, there’s a capable 20MP wide-angle camera for selfies. The phone can also shoot 8K video at 30fps and is powered by a 4780mAh battery that can be juiced up using an inbox 30W quick charger and at 30W with wireless charging (using the new Mi Wireless Charger) as well. This flagship-grade OnePlus killer comes with Android 10 inside with price tags starting from ₹49,999 and includes a free Mi Wireless Powerbank as part of the welcome package.
