Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro full specs and new renders leak, Mi 10T Lite still expected, and rumored prices for the whole Mi 10T series
Just ahead of launch, the specifications sheets for the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro have been seemingly leaked courtesy of tech tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore. It was widely expected the latest Mi 10 smartphones would come with the Snapdragon 865 SoC and a 144 Hz panel, but there is at least one surprise to be found in the datasheets. According to this particular leak, the Mi 10T actually gets 8 GB RAM, when it was widely expected to only get 6 GB. While this is the only version of the regular model mentioned, the Pro variant of the upcoming 5G smartphone will apparently come in two configurations: 8 GB + 128 GB and 8 GB + 256 GB.
The only other differences listed between the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro are the main camera sensor (64 MP vs. 108 MP with OIS) and the choice of colors: The Mi 10T comes in silver or black while the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro can be clad in black, silver, or blue. The tipster has assured followers that the details are accurate, and while someone has mentioned that the dimensions and weight are slightly incorrect, with the Pro model being a bit bigger and heavier, it appears that the two Mi 10T devices are almost identical.
The potential Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite 5G smartphone has kept a much lower profile than the other two Mi 10 devices, but it is also rumored to be coming with a 6.67-inch display. The refresh rate is allegedly lower, at 120 Hz, and a Snapdragon 750G chip has been mentioned. With 6 GB RAM and 64 GB/128 GB storage, 64 MP main camera sensor, and 4,720-mAh battery, the mysterious Mi 10T Lite is nothing to be sniffed at, especially when it is expected to come with a price tag that is under €300 (US$349). Like the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro, the Lite variant should have a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
Unsurprisingly, the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro will be pricier than their possible Lite relative, but maybe by not as much as some believe. Various price predictions have been bandied around, with about €550 (US$641) suggested for the Mi 10T and €640-€699 (US$745-US$814) for the Pro model. However, other sources have gone with €499 (US$581) and €599 (US$698), respectively, which also falls in line with rumors we have already reported on. These latter price points would be much more welcome for the upcoming Xiaomi smartphones, with the Mi 10T Pro's price possibly being even lower considering its similarity to the regular model.
