Xiaomi Mi 10i Overview
Did you read the topic carefully? You did, right? Yes, the phone headlining feature is a 108MP camera placed next to the 8MP ultrawide camera—the adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz when gaming and 30Hz when browsing social media is also impressive. Snapdragon 750G chipset is another attractive feature of the phone.
