Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro phones are launching in India on October 15. Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain has confirmed the launch of the two phones in India soon after its global unveil last week. The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro phones have an identical hole-punch display design and offer 144Hz refresh rate. While Jain hasn't mentioned the Mi 10T Lite its arrival seems to have been tipped by a fresh Bluetooth SIG listing, which not only mentions the global model but also the Indian variant.
Jain took to Twitter to announce the launch of the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro phones in India. He confirmed that the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro will launch in India on October 15. The event will begin at 12pm (noon). These phones were introduced globally last week at a price of EUR 499 (roughly Rs. 43,000) and EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 51,700), respectively. In India too, the phones should be priced in the same range.
Jain hasn't mentioned the Mi 10T Lite in his post, but the Indian version of the phone was spotted on Bluetooth SIG. Both the global model and the Indian model have been listed on the certification site with model numbers M2007J17G and M2007J17I, respectively. This hints that the Mi 10T Lite may also launch in India, but it could be that it arrives at a later date, in case it does not arrive on the same day as the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro.
We already know the specifications of the Mi 10T 5G and Mi 10T 5G Pro, and if the Indian models match that of the global models, then the phones will run on MIUI 12, based on Android 10. The Mi 10T 5G features a 6.67-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,400 pixels) display with 20:9 aspect ratio, 144Hz refresh rate, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. In comparison, the Mi 10T Pro 5G features a 6.67-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,400 pixels) display.
