The Mi Note 10, the first smartphone with a 108 megapixel sensor

Xiaomi was holding its fall show in Madrid, and the Chinese manufacturer hit hard with, first, the first smartphone equipped with a 108-megapixel photo lens, but also with the launch of a quality report model unbeatable price, the Redmi Note 8T.

This Wednesday, November 6, the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi held a conference in Madrid to launch its new products in Europe. He took the opportunity to unveil his new smartphones Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro, two devices offered at a rather high-end price with a five-fold photo module. This is the European version of the Mi CC9 Pro launched in China the day before.

Both devices feature a 6.47-inch Super Amoled FHD + display (2.340 x 1.080 pixels ), as well as 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for the Mi Note 10 versus 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for the Mi Note 10 Pro. The biggest surprise is probably the choice of the processor  : instead of choosing the high-end SoC Snapdragon 855, Xiaomi opted for the Snapdragon 730G, a version of Snapdragon 730 slightly optimized for games. Both devices also have a 3.5mm mini-jack, a dual nano-SIM (but no microSD), and a battery of 5.260 mAh with fast charge of 30 W.

A fivefold photo module

Both cameras incorporate a 32-megapixel selfie camera, placed in a notch of the screen as a drop of water. On the back, there are five different sensors, starting with a 108-megapixel main sensor for default shots in 27 megapixels thanks to the pixel binning technique. It comes with an ultra-wide-angle 20-megapixel module, a 2x 12-megapixel module, a 5x 5-megapixel module and finally, a macro module for close-up shots at 2 megapixels.

Xiaomi boasts a zoom that can range from 0.6x to 5x optical and 50x hybrid. In addition to the difference in the amount of memory, the Mi Note 10 Pro stands out with an 8P lens (against a 7P lens on the Mi Note 10) and the ability to record RAW snapshots. They will be available for purchase from November 18, for 549 euros for the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and 649 euros for the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro.
