As promised a couple of days ago, Xiaomi has launched the Mi 10S 5G in China today. The smartphone is the latest addition to the Mi 10 series that the company launched last year. Mi 10S 5G packs slightly upgraded hardware, a 108MP quad-camera system, fast-charging, and a lot more.
Now, before getting to the price and availability of the new Mi 10S 5G, let me give you an overview of the key specs of the device.
