Xiaomi is bringing the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro to India.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T triplets made their debut last week in Europe, but they weren’t likely to remain a continental exclusive for long. Now, Xiaomi India has confirmed that at least two of them will arrive in India on October 15.
Something is brewing. ☕

Xiaomi’s confirmation follows a brief teaser tweet published on Sunday which hinted at the flagship Mi 10T Pro’s imminent arrival. While the company uses “series” to describe the devices, it only mentions the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro in its confirmation tweet. The Mi 10T Lite will seemingly not arrive in India.
Mi fans: Much love, can’t wait. Launch it now. ?

It seems unlikely that Xiaomi will add rumored battery and chipset buffs to the Indian Mi 10T Pro. The phone will still pack a Snapdragon 865 according to Xiaomi’s website, while a 5,000mAh battery is also expected; both figures are arguably more than adequate. The 108MP rear snapper and variable 144Hz LCD screen will also make a return.
Xiaomi India will debut the devices on October 15 at 12 PM IST (2:30 AM ET), so expect more concrete pricing details to emerge then. But if smartphone pricing in the Indian market is used as a precedent, expect the €449 (~$526) Xiaomi Mi 10T and €599 (~$702) Mi 10T Pro to come in well below their European prices.
