The Xiaomi Mi 10T is an interesting successor to the Mi 10 5G. It gets upgrades in a few areas and loses some existing features to save on costs. For example, the Mi 10T loses the 30W wireless charging system from the Mi 10. It also loses the curved AMOLED display in favor of a flat LCD display. The standard model gets to use the 64-megapixel sensor instead of the 108-megapixel version.
However, the upgrades on the Mi 10T are clever ones. While the display loses the AMOLED panel, Xiaomi is using a 6.67-inch LCD panel with a refresh rate of 144Hz. The panel gets a JNCD rating of less 0.39. Additionally, the display has a punch-hole cutout for holding the 20-megapixel selfie camera.

The triple rear camera setup gets a 64-megapixel sensor accompanied by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera. There’s also a 5-megapixel macro camera at disposal. The main camera has OIS for stability. It also gets the Dual Video feature that lets you shoot from both front and rear cameras at once.
