For instance, the Mi 9T Professional was only a re-brand of the Redmi Ok20 Professional – a really profitable and wanted mannequin. However the successor, the Mi 10T Professional, is a model new gadget with little to no resemblance to its siblings.
That does not take away the truth that for its worth, the Mi 10T Professional packs a punch. It might not strike us because the “flagship killer” the Mi 9T Professional was final 12 months and a few of this 12 months’s options. Nonetheless, it undoubtedly falls within the “mainstream” or “inexpensive” flagship class with premium specs and a comparatively low price ticket.
It packs all the pieces you’d anticipate from a 2020 flagship – Snapdragon 865 SoC, 108MP principal digital camera aided by a macro and ultra-wide though, there isn’t any correct telephoto. Nonetheless, one would argue that cropping from the 108MP principal sensor would most likely internet higher outcomes than an affordable 2x zoom digital camera.
There’s additionally a major enhance in battery capability during the last technology leaping to five,000 mAh and final, however not least, a high-refresh-rate show – a 144Hz one at that.

Alternatively, some options like the three.5mm audio jack and the under-display fingerprint reader will probably be missed dearly.
