Xiaomi appears to be implementing a higher price strategy for its devices that are launching on the Indian market now, as recently occurred with the European market. The Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro were released in Europe at much higher prices than in the Chinese OEM’s domestic market. The Indian market prices for two variants of the Xiaomi Mi 10 have recently been announced, and it has left many smartphone fans remarking that they would be better off buying a OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone.

The price for the Xiaomi Mi 10 with 8 GB + 128 GB is ₹49,999 (US$662) while customers in India will have to pay ₹54,999 (US$728) for the model with 8 GB + 256 GB. The 5G-capable Mi 10 comes with a Snapdragon 865 processor, 6.67-inch OLED 90 Hz display, 20 MP front camera, rear quad-camera setup with 108 MP primary sensor, and a 4,780 mAh battery. It has decent specifications, but users have already been complaining about the prohibitive prices for India.

The OnePlus 8 Pro currently has a price tag of ₹54,999 (US$728) for the 8 GB + 128 GB model and potential customers will have to pay ₹59,999 (US$794) for the 12 GB + 256 GB variant. The OnePlus smartphone has a better display (120 Hz, 3168x1440), and when you look at the price of the 12 GB + 256 GB model compared to the 8 GB + 256 GB Xiaomi Mi 10, you can understand why many users are recommending a switch to the OnePlus 8 Pro over buying one of the Xiaomi devices.
