Xiaomi has announced the price of the Mi 10 flagship ahead of its launch in the UK – here’s what you should know about the brand new device.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 will be launched in the UK at a starting price of £699 (for the 128GB variant), going up to £799 for the 256GB storage option. However the top-spec model in the series, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, will not be available in the UK.
The official online virtual launch event will take place on March 27, at 1pm GMT and you can follow it via Xiaomi’s official Twitter account.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 will be the first of the brand’s UK products to run on the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 865 chipset, and thanks to the X55 modem it will be capable of 5G connectivity.
On top of that, it boasts a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution, enhanced by a 90Hz refresh rate and an extremely sensitive 180Hz touch sampling rate. There’s a quad camera on the back, which is led by a 108-megapixel wide angle sensor, joined by a 13-megapixel ultrawide lens, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. For endurance it’s got a 4780mAh battery (enabled for 30W fast charging).

Meanwhile, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, which will not be sold in the UK, runs on the same processor, has the same screen size, and even has a slightly smaller battery (at 4500mAh). But the big difference lies in the camera set-up; the Pro variant has an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor, a 12-megapixel portrait lens, and a 20-megapixel ultrawide snapper in addition to that 108-megapixel main camera (the same one found on the ultra-expensive Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra).
