Xiaomi hints at 108 MP camera sporting Mi Note 10 launch in India

Unlike Xiaomi's other devices, the premium Mi Note series has never been officially launched in India.

Looks like Xiaomi has something in store for India, and its India head has been teasing #108MP mentioning tweets since the last few hours.

For those who have been following Xiaomi's launch cycles, it's evident that the hint is regarding the 108 MP camera sporting smartphone, Xiaomi Mi Note 10. The way Jain is tweeting about 108 MP makes it look like the Mi Note 10 could be coming to India. While Jain hasn't explicitly said out loud that the Mi Note 10 is coming to India, it is the only smartphone in its current line up that sports a 108 MP camera.

Jain hasn't said when exactly this phone is launching in India.

Unlike Xiaomi's other devices, the premium Mi Note series has never been officially launched in India. The last Mi branded device we saw launched here was the Xiaomi Mi 5 (Review). Post that the focus shifted to the Redmi series to an extent that Redmi became a brand unto itself. The only Mi series devices since then have been the Mi A2, Mi A3 devices which are Xiaomi's Android One powered devices. But given the response that Xiaomi's Redmi K20 Pro (Review) has seen after its launch, Xiaomi finally must be feeling confident to launch a flagship device in the country under the Mi Note branding.
