Xiaomi has debuted another premium smartphone for this year, and this time, it is solely launched in China with speculation that it would come to the US region to fill in the gap for choices within the company. The new device is called the Xiaomi Mi 10S, which takes a step back from the recently debuted Xiaomi Mi 11, packed with Snapdragon 870 and 5G.
The popular multimedia and consumer electronics company from Shenzhen, China has debuted another premium and top-of-the-line smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi 10S, several months after its flagship release. Xiaomi aims to fill the gaps of a cheaper smartphone, but packs a massive spec sheet within it, offering features like the previous release.
Xiaomi has been known for massive releases of smartphones with top-tier specs, without the expense of paying for an expensive one, making it one of the best alternatives there is in the market. Moreover, the new smartphone debuted with MIUI 12, which is the company's latest operating system version that is largely based on Android, along with a Google Suite of apps (yes, they still got it).
Xiaomi Mi 10S vs. Xiaomi Mi 11
First of all, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is still the superior smartphone variant from the company, bringing in the top-tier Snapdragon chipset there is the 888, which is the best that the company offers for now. Moreover, it offers a 120Hz refresh rate on its display, in which the Xiaomi Mi 10S is inferior with its 90Hz refresh rate for the display.
However, the device is pretty much the same in terms of specs including the 6.6-inch display with slim bezels and a notch for the front camera, Harman Kardon-tuned speakers, and a 108MP rear camera. The Xiaomi Mi 10S takes the win over the quad-camera setup which resembles the Mi 10, while the Mi 11 offers only two rear cameras.
The Xiaomi MI 10S trails behind with its Snapdragon 870, which is an updated version of the Snapdragon 865, which is then again, fitted with the previous Mi 10 that is also the inspiration of the new smartphone. Both devices offer 5G capabilities and a 4K viewing experience with their display, both of which are the smartphone standards of the era.
Xiaomi offers the M1 10S with a slightly larger battery capacity of 4780mAh, compared to the 4600mAh of the Xiaomi Mi 11.
