Xiaomi is finally bringing the Mi 10 to India today through an online event. The Mi 10 series, that launched in China back in February, will be launched after a previous event was cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. By the looks of it, the company is planning to bring the Mi 10 and not the Pro variant to India, which sort of makes sense. The company is also expected to launch the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 as well as the Mi TV Box alongside the flagship smartphone.
The launch event is scheduled to begin at 12PM IST and will be live-streamed on Xiaomi India's official YouTube channel. You can also tune in by watching the live stream embedded here:
