The Xiaomi Mi 10i has sold over 200,000 units in India alone so far with its 108 MP camera and 120 Hz display
Xiaomi launched the Mi 10i in early January, but it remains purchasable only in India so far. Nonetheless, the device has already proven extremely popular, as Xiaomi India has boasted in a tweet. According to the subdivision, the Mi 10i has grossed INR 4 billion in its first three weeks, which is equivalent to US$54.9 million.
The Mi 10i should start at INR 20,999 (~US$288) with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. However, this model is currently unavailable, a fate that has also befallen the 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage edition, which should cost INR 21,999 (~US$302). Instead, Xiaomi only has stock of the Atlantic Blue and Midnight Black versions of the 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage model, for which the company charges INR 23,999 (~US$329). The Mi 10i has sold out on Amazon India too, further underlining the smartphone's popularity.
Essentially, Xiaomi has created the Mi 10i by adapting the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, a device that it announced in November. Both devices have a 6.67-inch IPS display with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a Snapdragon 750G chipset. A 108 MP Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor serves as the primary camera on both devices too, although Xiaomi sells the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G with more storage than it currently does with the Mi 10i. It is unclear if Xiaomi plans to release either device globally, though.
