Xiaomi is stepping up today – the company that Huawei recently left behind in global smartphone sales and pushed it to third place. However, Xiaomi is more active than Huawei and has new hardware for various product categories at the start. The best at it: Xiaomi has long had its sights set. The Mi 10 / M 10 Pro, which has already been presented nationally.
The range of smartphones is completed by the Mi 10 Lite, which is technically much weaker than the flagships, but just like the M 10 and M 10 Pro, it can boast 5G. So you get a mid-range smartphone that is already 5G-compatible for around 350 euros.
Xiaomi M 10 And M 10 Pro
Of course, the main focus is the M 10 and M 10 Pro, which is now available in the global version and not only have 5G to offer on the side of the purchase arguments, but also powerful cameras that don’t have to hide behind the competition. Both models boast a 108 MP camera sensor that offers 8K video. We also find a quad-cam in both devices, which is better equipped in the Pro. At the front, both handsets offer us a 20 MP selfie cam.
The most important specs of the M-10 series also include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB internal storage and a 6.67-inch 90 Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels.Both smartphones support wireless charging with up to 30 W but have different sized batteries. The M 10 Pro’s battery is even smaller, with a capacity of 4,500 mAh, but it charges up to 50 watts. With the normal M10, you get a 4,780 mAh battery and 30 watts.
The Mi 10 Pro is available in two colours, Alpin White and Solstice Gray, with 8 GB + 256 GB for 999 euros. In addition to the version with 8 GB + 256 GB, the Mi 10 is also available with 128 GB. It starts at 799 euros, the model with 256 GB costs 899 euros, choosing between the colours Twilight Gray and Coral Green. It will be sold from April 7th – and those who pre-order (from March 28th) can save a lot because Xiaomi is generous.
Mi TV 4S: 65-Inch 4K TV
But as I said, Xiaomi doesn’t want to conquer just with smartphones. They also want to make a name for themselves on the television market. In contrast to smartphones, which are not much cheaper in this country than the competing models, Xiaomi is once again asking for an actual competitive price on television. Xiaomi charges 599 euros for the Mi TV 4s – a 4K TV with a screen diagonal of a total of 65 inches.
For such a huge box, almost 600 euros are outrageously cheap, but you will have to make technical compromises compared to significantly more expensive devices. Xiaomi has not yet said anything specific about a market launch, but you will be able to order the planner again via Amazon. There you can also get the 55-inch model, which you can currently order for 399 euros. The device comes with Android TV (Android 9.0 Pie) and integrated Chromecast. Of course, it has WiFi, Bluetooth LE and 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage space.
In this case, Xiaomi offers Ethernet as well as three USB and HDMI ports for the connections. The speakers provide 10 watts of sound, Dolby Audio and DTS-HD are supported, and remote control is, of course, also available. It offers separate buttons for Google Assistant, Netflix and Amazon Prime. Xiaomi will probably offer its Mi TV 4S for 599 euros via Amazon in the summer, but there is no precise date yet.
We can’t tell you anything about the quality of the picture, except that Xiaomi advertises with 4K resolution and HDR10 + support. The 55-inch model last year was tested quite well, so you can confidently buy the big brother at this price. But you should already be aware that the more expensive competition is asking for different prices for a good reason and is in a different league in terms of quality.
WiFi 6 Router, Air Purifier And Wireless Earphones
With the Mi AIoT router AX3600 and the Mi AIoT router AC2350. The first of which already supports WiFi 6. The other model still lacks this support, but you only pay 49.90 euros as an introductory price for the cheaper device. The AX3600 automatically detects your IoT hardware and can be connected to up to 248 devices simultaneously. The Mi AIoT router AC2350 will be available for one week at the early bird price of 49.99 euros.
Then it costs 59.99 euros. The AIoT router AX3600 will be available at a later date for 119.99 euros. Xiaomi is also not offering us a humidifier for the first time. The Mi Air Purifier 3H is compatible with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa but can also be controlled via the Mi Home app. Xiaomi points out that the Air Purifier will be available for purchase for 199.99 euros.
Xiaomi explains: That leaves the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2, preparing to compete for customers in an increasingly crowded market for wireless earphones. This could be made possible by offering them on mi.com/de at an introductory price of only 69.99 euros – later, 99.99 euros will be due.
