New Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has a 108MP camera and a 144Hz screen to take on Samsung

Xiaomi is not letting Samsung, OnePlus, and Google steal all the reasonably priced exciting smartphone fun, and has launched the Mi 10T Pro. It starts at 599 euros, or about $700, putting it in direct competition with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and the OnePlus 8 (soon to be 8T), plus around the same price we expect the Pixel 5 to cost.

There are several standout features that make the Mi 10T Pro worth considering, starting with a 108-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization on the back. Xiaomi and Samsung worked together on developing the 108MP camera technology, and here it comes with some new features to entice you away from Samsung’s version. These include six long exposure modes, such as one where a static subject can be isolated against a blurred moving background, plus a burst mode that converts stills into video, and a selection of new filters.

Joining the 108MP camera is a 13MP wide-angle camera and a 5MP macro camera, plus a 20MP selfie camera set inside a hole-punch in the screen. What else can the camera do? It shoots 8K video at 30 frames per second, will take video using the front and rear cameras at the same time, and adds HDR to selfies as well. The camera module’s design reminds us of the Vivo X50 Pro, and it’s set inside a 9.18mm thick, 218 gram body made from metal and Gorilla Glass 5, and it comes in black, silver, or blue.

The 20:9 aspect ratio screen measures 6.67-inches and has a 144Hz refresh rate with AdaptiveSync technology, so the refresh rate always matches the content on the screen. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor with 8GB of RAM provides the power, and a massive 5,000mAh battery provides the energy. There’s a choice of either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage, there are dual stereo speakers, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 5G connectivity, NFC, Wi-Fi 6, and 33W fast charging.

Xiaomi has also announced two other phones in the Mi 10T family, The 449 euro/$525 Mi 10T has the same processor, screen, and 5,000mAh battery as the Pro, but swaps the 108MP camera for a 64MP camera. The 279 euro/326 Mi 10T Lite has a different design with a top-center mounted camera module with a 64MP main camera, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a pair of 2MP cameras for macro and depth. It uses the Snapdragon 750G processor and the 6.67-inch screen has a 120Hz refresh rate.

Details on the final release date are still to come, but expect the phones to be available in the U.K. and Europe, but not officially in the U.S., although it would be possible to import one.

The OnePlus 10T just leaked with a few disappointing changes
OnePlus 10T titled

Apparently, OnePlus is bringing its T series phone back for 2022. As per new renders from Smartprix and @OnLeaks, the OnePlus 10T will be released later this year — and it'll look a whole lot like the OnePlus 10 Pro that came before it. OnePlus dropped the T version last year with no OnePlus 9T to speak of. As such, the OnePlus 10T will succeed the OnePlus 8T launched in 2020.

As mentioned above, the design of the OnePlus 10T looks identical to the flagship OnePlus 10 Pro. However, OnePlus has made some changes that aren't so pleasing. From cheaper materials to missing features, the 10T doesn't make the best first impression.

Xiaomi’s Poco M4 Pro lands in India as the Redmi Note 11T at cheaper new price
The Redmi Note 11T smartphone in different color options.

Weeks after Xiaomi launched the Poco M4 Pro 5G in European markets, the company has brought the same device to India -- albeit with a major change in branding. In India, Xiaomi has decided to make it part of Redmi’s affordable lineup and market the phone as the Redmi Note 11T. To make matters even more confusing, Xiaomi sells the same phone as the Redmi Note 11 in China. Apart from the significant rebranding exercise, the Redmi Note 11T happens to be quite a bit cheaper than its European sibling.

The Redmi Note 11T is a fairly large phone with a 6.6-inch FHD+, 90Hz IPS-LCD panel, and a 5,000mAh battery. The phone also supports an adaptive refresh rate wherein the device automatically adjusts the screen refresh rate depending on the type of content being displayed. The Redmi Note 11T is also among the few devices in its price range to offer stereo speakers. It's also IP53 rated for dust and water resistance.
