Xiaomi announced the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in China last month. And while the company was set to bring the phone to the Indian market, the current coronavirus situation caused it to postpone the launch indefinitely. However, keeping up with its promise, the Chinese manufacturer has today announced the Mi 10 and the Mi 10 Pro globally via an online announcement. Alongside the two devices, it has also a third variant, the Mi 10 Lite, which comes with Snapdragon 765G, 5G connectivity, quad rear cameras, and a 4160mAh battery.
