The Chinese manufacturer already has an official Hungarian representation.
Founded in 2010, China Xiaomit (pronounced “saomi”) is known for its excellent value for money products. And although it has already been present in Hungary with two official brand stores through the company’s resellers, it has only been represented from now on. The Hungarian office was launched in September, but the initial one was expanded in a short time: as of December 1, four people are already working to make the brand as well-known as possible in Hungary. And at yesterday’s announcement press conference, two brand new smartphone models were also unveiled – while also reminding them that it’s not just the phones on offer: everything from electric toothbrushes to robotic vacuum cleaners and air purifiers to TV. It is true that the latter are expected to appear in Hungary at the earliest next year, as they are not yet competitive in terms of software compared to the competing models on the Hungarian market.
The more serious new model, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, offers no less than the world’s highest resolution camera at the moment: the main sensor, which is also equipped with an optical image stabilizer, captures 108 megapixel images with a resolution of 12032 * 9024 pixels. But in addition to the Samsung Isocell Bright HMX sensor, we also get four additional cameras: a 5-megapixel and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens (the former also got an optical image stabilizer), a 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens (with a 117-degree viewing angle), and a macro camera. Of course, the front-panel camera didn’t even set in with a few megapixels: a 32-megapixel sensor was added to the side of the display. For video, ShootSteady technology helps with image stabilization, and slow-motion shots can be taken at speeds of up to 960 frames per second.
The Mi Note 10 has a 6.47-inch curved AMOLED display, an outstanding battery with a 5,260 mAh, 30W fast charge capability, and is all powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will be available in gray, white and blue soon, at a price of HUF 199,000.
The other phone presented is a mid-range model, but it also has some high-end features. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 cover on both the front and back (the plastic back is more typical in this price range), and there are four cameras on it. The main lens is 48 megapixels, along with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle (120-degree) camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The “selfie camera” has a 13 megapixel panoramic selfie function. Its display is 6.3 inches with FHD + resolution. The dual SIM phone has an eight-core Snapdragon 665 processor. Its battery is 4000 mAh, which can be charged with an 18 W charger via a type C USB connector. It also has NFC as a rarity in its price range. It will be available in night gray, star blue and moonlight white within days, from 74,990 HUF. There are three versions of it: 3 GB + 32 GB, 4 GB + 64 GB and 4 GB + 128 GB.
