If you’re a Xiaomi Mi 10i owner, then you can upgrade your phone to Android 12-based MIUI 13. As it is a major OS update, it comes with a bunch of unique features, changes, and improvements. Here you can check everything about the Mi 10i MIUI 13 update.
Xiaomi Mi 10i Specs
The Mi 10i is relatively affordable but still offers a 108-megapixel primary camera, 5G, an IP53 rating, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor. It also has some neat touches including a notification LED, a 3.5mm audio socket, and stereo speakers. It’s available in three variants, with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Performance in everyday tasks is good, and even gaming posed no problem. The back of the phone doesn’t get too warm when stressed. The camera performance was somewhat disappointing in the daytime and at night, especially the fact that the three secondary rear cameras are quite ordinary. The 4K video came out looking discolored and there’s no stabilization. Battery life on the other hand was impressive.
Xiaomi is seeding the new update in a staged manner, at the time of writing, the OTA is live in India, and will be available in other regions in the coming days. The new software hits the Mi 10i phones with 184.108.40.206.SJSINXM software version. it is the second major OS upgrade for the Mi 10i. The phone was announced last year with Android 10 OS and later received an Android 11 update. And it is time for the Android 12 build. Since it is a major update it weighs more than general security updates.
It requires more data for downloading compared to the security updates released on monthly basis, it weighs 3GB in size, and you can use both cellular data or WiFi to install the new software.
Talking about the features, then MIUI 13 hits the Xiaomi Mi 10i with an optimized file storage system, RAM optimization engine, processor priority optimization, extended battery life of up to 10%, sidebar, and more.
