Rumours on the web have also suggested that the Mi 10i 5G could be a rebranded version of the Mi 10 Lite global version. Other expected specifications include a 6.67-inch FHD+ LCD display with 120Hz refresh rate, 16MP front camera, 4,820mAh battery and 33W fast charging. Another tweet by Jain hinted that the price of the phone could be below Rs 30,000.
With the Snapdragon 750G, we can expect the camera and 5G-compatibility to be the major selling points of the phone. With the pricing hint, it can be said that the Mi 10i 5G could compete with phones like the OnePlus Nord, Samsung Galaxy M51 and the Google Pixel 4A in the country.
