Well now things just got very interesting! Loving the healthy competition in Mobile right now...

From PhoneArena:


“What's on top of the DxO Mark camera scores with a 108MP sensor, records 8K video, has Snapdragon 865 and 5G modem, 12GB RAM, and a 5K battery? No, not the Galaxy S20 Ultra, that one blasts off from $1400, but a phone that costs half that price.

Display: 6.7" FHD+ OLED 90Hz display with 1200 nits peak brightness
Processor: Snapdragon 865
Memory: 8/12GB RAM, 128/256/512GB storage
Primary camera: 108MP, 1/1.33-inch sensor with 25mm-equivalent, f/1.69-aperture lens, OIS (25MP output resolution)
Short telephoto: 12MP, 2x zoom for portraits, 1/2.6-inch sensor with 50mm-equivalent, f/2-aperture lens
Long telephoto: 8MP, 10x hybrid zoom, 1/4.4-inch sensor with 94mm-equivalent, f/2-aperture lens, OIS
Ultra-wide: 20MP, 1/2.8-inch sensor with 16mm-equivalent, f/2.2-aperture lens
Battery: 4780mAh/4500mAh (Pro), up to 65W charging



That's right, not only does the new Mi 10 family also sport a 108MP camera like on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, albeit in a Tetracell instead of Nonacell virtual pixel configuration, but it also has two telephoto cameras for long and medium range zooming/portraits, shunning complex folded optics altogether.


The 2x optical magnification with the 12MP sensor is used for portraits, while the 8MP sensor comes with 10x hybrid optical that includes cropping from the large main sensor for lossless zooming. Last but not least, since the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 865 chipset, it can record 8K video at 30fps, but the 4K sample below is more representative of what you would actually do with the 10 Pro on a daily basis:



Last but not least, the large battery comes with a 50W charging abilities which means that you will be able to top the large capacity in under an hour from dead state, a commendable achievement.

Since the Mi 10 Pro has a 1080p display resolution, it will last as long, and most likely longer on a charge with its 4500mAh battery, compared to the Galaxy S20 Ultra that has a 5000mAh pack but a 1440p display. On top of that, it is able to reverse charge your other wireless gadgets with 10W output, a tad more than Samsung's 9W reverse charge abilities on the S20.


The Mi 10 Pro will be the world's first Snapdragon 865 phone available to buy when it launches tomorrow, February 14. Its price range goes from $715 to $860, depending on the memory and storage amounts, which still puts the tag of the 512-gigger at half the $1600 price that the S20 Ultra commands, and you aren't losing much camera quality in the process.

Granted, these prices will be slightly higher when the global version is released February 18, but it will still be a bargain compared to the Galaxy S20 range, and the first phone you can get with Qualcomm's latest high-end chipset, albeit not in the US, as relationship with Chinese companies here is a bit complicated at the moment.

The Mi 10 Pro will only be available in blue and white versions for now, but, knowing the company, more colors and even build materials for the body, are likely to be released soon after the initial launch. Check out Qualcomm waxing poetic about its 5G collab with Xiaomi over the 10 Pro.”

Will probably still have ads baked into the OS/Apps that can't be uninstalled.

Pity that their skin sucks, but I guess you can't complain at this price. You'll just have to load a better ROM...

Waiting for the Oneplus 8 to push the price of the 7t pro down. Don't see the point of buying extremely high specced phones anymore, especially given the fact that you can't get these Chinese phones fixed in SA if something happened to it.

Well, in that case, looks like I need to order another Xiaomi.
No release date for the international version yet.
Maybe you're referring to this?
"Granted, these prices will be slightly higher when the global version is released February 18..."
