My Thoughts

The Mi 10 is the latest flagship device from Xiaomi in the Indian market. It will go head-on with the OnePlus 8 series. While Xiaomi is popular in the budget segment it has not performed well in the premium segment. However, the neat design of the device and the fact that MIUI 12 on the verge of release might uplift the smartphone sale.
