Not too long ago, Xiaomi launched its Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro flagship smartphones in China. For quite a while now, we have been anticipating the launch of the devices in India.

Mi fans, we've worked very hard to bring this #108MP flagship experience to India.
However, I want to add that we may have a different pricing model for this flagship due to (a) direct import (b) higher GST (c) depreciating ₹. Will keep everyone posted.#Xiaomi ❤️ #108MPIsHere https://t.co/HkMRftpyuz
