Commenting on the launch, Manu Jain, Managing Director, Mi India, said:

Since the beginning of 2020, we at Mi India have separated Mi and Redmi brands. Both the brands have separate product, business and marketing teams. Mi brand aims to bring the latest and the best technology to our Mi Fans. The Mi 10 series (Mi 10, Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro) has received an overwhelming response, reiterating our aspiration to bring breakthrough technology. One of the things that everyone loved about the Mi 10 series was the flagship 108MP camera sensor.

We are happy to bring the India debut of an improved 108MP camera sensor (ISOCELL HM2) on Mi 10i. This future proof smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor which is the latest and probably the most powerful processor in the 700 series. Moreover, we are happy to bring the same AdaptiveSync Display technology that everyone loved on Mi 10T Pro. Mi 10i is our yet another effort in delivering future proof technology, and we hope consumers love it too.
