Xiaomi Launches the Much-Anticipated Mi 10 Series in Singapore

Xiaomi’s 5G-forward flagship smartphone series debuts for the first time in Singapore

Singapore, 8th May 2020 – Global technology leader Xiaomi today launched the latest devices in its popular Mi smartphone series, Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. For the first time ever in Singapore, each device in Xiaomi’s new flagship line is 5G-ready out of the box, enabling the next generation in mobile connectivity.

“The Mi 10 series is the latest premium smartphones from Xiaomi, officially marking our first tap into the high-end smartphone segment. We are very pleased to see the total sales volume of the Mi 10 series in China has surpassed 1 million units on 21st April 2020. This number was achieved despite the COVID-19 outbreak that has dented some of our manufacturing capacity for about a month. We know that our Singaporean Mi fans and users have been waiting for the Mi 10 series. That is why we are excited to announce that the Mi 10 series is finally reaching the Singaporean shores, aiming to bring the best experience to Mi fans and users, whether it’s in the leading performance with Qualcomm SnapdragonTM 865, the 108MP quad-camera with 8K video recording or the 6.67” 3D curved AMOLED with TrueColor technology,” said Nicolas Shi, Xiaomi Country Manager of Malaysia and Singapore.

He continues, “We are also proud that this year, the Mi 10 series will debut as the first Xiaomi products in Singapore that is powered by the latest 5G technology. This is in line with our ‘5G+AIoT’ strategy that we have set earlier this year. This is a revolutionary combination that will fundamentally change all of our products, catalyzing the next stage of our growth in 2020 and beyond. The 5G technology promises to change people’s lives including Singaporeans and we would like to be part of this initiative even in this early stage.”

In addition to shooting ultra-clear 108MP shots, users can document scenes in full perspective, thanks to Mi 10 Pro’s 20MP ultra wide-angle lens. The device includes two dedicated telephoto lenses that cover a wide range of focal lengths: users can snap gorgeous portraits at 2x zoom, or faraway subjects up to 50x zoom with the OIS-stabilized ultra long-range zoom lens. The main camera’s laser autofocus module, AI 2.0, Night mode 2.0, and dual-flash join forces to capture unrivaled details during daytime photography and brighter, clearer photos at night.

To ensure durability, both devices are outfitted with Corning® Gorilla®Glass 5 on both the front and back. Mi 10 Pro flaunts an anti-glare finish and frosted glass rear panel, while Mi 10 offers a gorgeous glossy back. Moreover, the devices’ specially designed discrete in-display front camera minimizes bezels and allows for more display area.

Featuring a dazzling 6.67” curved AMOLED edge-to-edge DotDisplay with TrueColor technology, Mi 10 Pro offers unparalleled color accuracy for serious creatives and casual consumers alike with a JNCD 0.55 and △E <1.1.
