Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro review: a seriously powerful Android smartphone

The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro is another flagship-level phone from the Chinese manufacturer, as it looks to gain even more market share outside of its home country. It follows on from the superb Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro from last year, and fits alongside the other Mi 10 phones of 2020.

It’s not a terribly easy range to figure out – there are several different-but-similar Mi 10 phones to pick from, with and without the T attached (though the T denotes the newer models), and then there are the Note models to take into consideration as well…

It’s perhaps easier to look at the prices to understand where each phone sits in the Xiaomi Mi 10 range. This Mi 10T Pro hasn’t been given a UK price (or launch date) yet, but costs €599 in European markets – that works out at roughly £545, so mid-to-upper-range pricing.

That’s a very reasonable

Why Samsung and Xiaomi are talking UWB, and more tech news you need to know today

Your tech news digest, by way of the DGiT Daily tech newsletter, for Monday, 12 October 2020.

1. UWB is ultra, it’s wideband, and Apple’s announcing it tomorrow?

Here’s a little preview of the future via Samsung, which said today in a blog post that says it expects UWB to be one of the “next big wireless technologies”.

What’s UWB?

  • UWB, or ultra-wideband, looks like the next big thing as it allows for fast data transfer over longer ranges, with precision location services baked in.
  • UWB chips are now present in several new smartphones, like the iPhone 11 series and the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
  • And the reason is that the technology looks intensely useful. Better Bluetooth is a simple mostly right answer, but another example would be much better NFC, as well, given accuracies can be down to centimeters.
  • So, what does it mean? Samsung’s examples of using

The next cheap Xiaomi phone might have a whopping 108MP main camera

Currently four different Xiaomi phones have 108MP main cameras – these are the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Mi Note 10 and Mi 10T Pro, all of which are mid-range or premium devices. However we could soon see one of the company’s affordable phones use this super-high-res camera sensor too.

The Xiaomi Mi Note 10’s 108MP camera

This comes from reliable leaker Digital Chat Station on Weibo, who posted “J17 *, you like 108mp main camera and telephoto macro has [rabbit emojii]”. That message has been mangled in translation, as the original was written in Chinese, but the meaning is clear: Xiaomi has a new phone with the code ‘J17’ which has a 108MP main camera and another sensor paired with a telephoto macro lens. There’s probably no bunny involved though.

The recent Xiaomi Mi 10T had the codename ‘J3’ and most Xiaomi phones have codes

New Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has a 108MP Camera and 144Hz Screen

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.

While the German Smartphone Market Plunged 27% in Q2 due to COVID-19, Apple and Xiaomi bucked the Trend with Solid Growth

 

Germany smartphone sales saw a big fall of 27% in Q2 2020 compared to a year ago. Europe’s largest economy went into a nationwide lockdown in mid-March in an attempt to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. But this drastic measure ended up pushing the economy into a recession in the second quarter. The nation’s GDP decreased sharply to 10.1% while consumer spending shrank by 10.9%. Smartphone market tumbled due to closures of almost all physical shops and many consumers putting off their next smartphone purchase due to the prevailing economic uncertainty.

 

Apple saw growth with an increase in share to 23% from 16% a year ago. Apple’s growth in the second quarter was due to strong demand for the new iPhone SE 2020.

 

The affordable iPhone with new hardware caters to more price-conscious buyers amid a COVID-19-driven recession.

Xiaomi to make under-display camera smartphones next year

The technology disguises the front camera under the phone screen without ruining the display effect.

Xiaomi said on Friday that it will start mass producing third generation smartphones with under-display camera technology next year even as the first two generations are yet to get well established in mass markets.

The Chinese phone maker claims that the third generation has improved full-screen effect offered via self-developed pixel arrangement.

In addition, Xiaomi has optimised the camera algorithm to match the performance with the conventional camera. The technology disguises the front camera under the phone screen without ruining the display effect, which the company said helps improve the technology and put it in mass production.

The latest technology “allows the screen to pass light through the gap area of ​​sub-pixels, allowing each single pixel to retain a complete RGB subpixel layout without sacrificing pixel density,” Xiaomi said in a statement.

It has achieved
