The top-of-the-line 12GB RAM + 256GB variant costs CNY 3,799 (approx Rs 42,600). The smartphone comes in Black, Blue, and White colour options. Notably, Xiaomi is having a standard edition that does not include a charger in the box and a Package Edition carries a 33W charger. There’s no difference in the cost of standard or Package edition.
In terms of specifications, the Xiaomi Mi 10S sports a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support and Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top.
