Xiaomi Mi 10i has been confirmed to launch on January 5 in India as the latest entrant in the Mi 10 lineup. The company had been teasing about the launch of a new smartphone with 108MP cameras from the past few weeks now and it is now confirmed that the phone set to launch on January 5 is the Mi 10i.
Xiaomi released a teaser video featuring Manu Kumar Jain, Global VP and MD who confirmed the name of the upcoming phone. He also revealed that the Mi 10i has been customized for the Indian market and is an extension of the Mi 10T Lite that was launched globally back in September. The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro subsequently made their way to India but the Mi 10T Lite was a no-show.

Xiaomi also launched the Mi 10T Lite with an upgraded camera sensor in China as the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, so expect all three phones to have a lot in common. The company has teased the presence of 108MP camera on the Mi 10i just like the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G.
According to a previous leak, the Mi 10i could have 108MP quad cameras, 120Hz refresh rate display and Snapdragon 750G under the hood. These details corroborate with the specifications of both the Mi 10T Lite and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. Xiaomi could price the Mi 10i under Rs 20,000 as the phone goes up against the likes of the Moto G 5G which was launched with Snapdragon 750G at Rs 20,999.
Xiaomi has confirmed that the Mi 10i will launch on January 5 in India and has teased the presence of 108MP primary camera. The phone could feature a Full HD+ display that supports 120Hz refresh rate with punch-hole notch cutout for the selfie camera.
The Mi 10i could be powered by the Snapdragon 750G and as per previous leaks, could be paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB storage options to choose from. In the latest teaser video, the company also mentions the presence of a new sensor and it could be a reference to the ISOCELL HM2 108MP sensor that is paired along with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there could be a 16MP selfie camera tucked away in the cutout.
The Mi 10i is expected to have a 4,800mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging out-of-the-box. We will know more as we near the launch date of the Mi 10i in India which is scheduled for January 5.
