Xiaomi made the leap to the highest range in Spain last year with the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. These mobiles stood out for raising the price several notches, but they also improved in terms of quality what Xiaomi was able to offer in a mobile without any concessions. These mobiles became so good that Xiaomi will continue to take advantage of their prestige with the new Xiaomi Mi 10S.

The new Mi 10S is not as special a mobile as the Mi 11 has been at the level of innovation, since in essence it is the same Xiaomi Mi 10 that we met last year with small changes to continue to maintain its appeal.

New Xiaomi Mi 10S: the same mobile, with two key changes

If you remember the analysis of the Xiaomi Mi 10 it was a mobile that we liked and that its only factor that left us with doubts ended up being the price increase. In Xiaomi they are willing to continue selling this mobile and have carried out a renewal of last year’s entry flagship.

We find a terminal that has the same spectacular Harman Kardon screen and speakers, camera and battery configuration, as well as the same fast charging, wireless charging and reverse wireless charging technologies. The technical sheet is practically traced to its predecessor with a single exception.

This model has the Snapdragon 870 processor instead of the 865 that the 2020 flagship had. The Snapdragon 870 is a chip that is slightly faster than the 865+ which in turn was slightly faster than the 865. The improvements between one chip and another are not too flashy either, since all three models have the same internal architecture.

The other change does not even affect the user experience. The camera module gives more prominence to the sensors and the color palette takes the style of the Mi 11, which makes the back look more visually attractive. On a personal level, it is not something that usually takes a lot of accounts, since normally where I spend 100% of the time using the mobile is in the front and the back I usually only take into account ergonomics. The Mi 10 was quite comfortable with its curves and the Mi 10S retains them, so everything is in order.

We have no charger in the box, although we also appreciate a price drop compared to the price of the Mi 10 last year. We have three models with the following prices:

  • Xiaomi Mi 10S of 8/128 GB: 3299 yuan, about 426 euros to change.
    • Price of its predecessor: 3999 yuan
  • Xiaomi Mi 10S of 8/256 GB: 3499 yuan, about 452 euros to change.
    • Price of its predecessor: 4299 yuan
  • Xiaomi Mi 10S of 12/256 GB: 3799 yuan, about 491 euros to change.
    • Price of its predecessor: 4699 yuan.

At this time we do not know if this mobile will arrive in Spain, although if it ends up arriving as much as possible it is that the most basic model will end up arriving at an approximate price of 500 euros, a price that would position it as one of the best mobile phonespremium in relation quality / price.
