Xiaomi Flagship Mi 10T Series Officially launched & Available in Nigeria - Full Specs, Price, Pros & Cons

 

Xiaomi has officially launched the Mi 10T series in Nigeria on 16th December, 2020. 


After its launch globally few months back, when I made a post about Best Phones Ever? Xiaomi Has Globally Released 5G Mi 10T Lite, Mi 10T & Mi 10T Pro With The Latest Technology Most Nigerians have been anticipating as to When other series apart from the Redmi note series would be launched.

Well, wait no more because the waiting is over. The following Mi 10T series were launched today in Nigeria.


1. Xiaomi mi 10T 5G selling at N231, 000

2. Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro Selling at N265, 000

The major highlights of today's launch is the pricing. The pricing is high though which I believe is due to current NAIRA-DOLLAR PALLAVA. But I believe with time these prices would be sliced.

The Mi 10T series are basically a futuristic devices embedded with 5G modems which is yet to be available in Nigeria.

A high end or flagship processors and a very high screen refresh rate. You will be in for a ride with the flash.

But the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite was left out during the launch and presentation today. I do not know the reason but I think the lite version would have been prefered to the likes of Redmi Note 9S, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Poco X3 NFC and many others. 

But all things being equal, hopefully the Lite version would go on sale also in Nigeria soon if not from Official Xiaomi Retail Stores nation wide, I can bet you could get them via Offline sellers on Nairaland.
