2019 has been a good year for Xiaomi. The company launched phones from the budget to mid-range to flagship segment in which they all rocked. Not just phones, but Xiaomi has also marked its place in the wearables department. However, the year, 2020, has been a trying time.
The launch event for Xiaomi’s flagship lineup Mi-series was rumored to take place in the month of February in China before the Samsung Unpack Event which took take place on Feb 11. But Xiaomi launched the Mi 10 series on Feb 13 in an online event instead of organizing a grand one due to Coronavirus epidemy. Xiaomi was expected to globally launch the series during the MWC 2020 which also got canceled due to the same reason.
And now, finally, after three months of release in China, Mi Note 10 with 5G support has made into the Nepali market. Xiaomi Nepal has set the Mi 10 5G price in Nepal as NPR 89,999 for an 8/256GB variant.

The display on the phone has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, 386ppi pixel density and features 90Hz refresh rate with HDR10+ support and in-screen fingerprint sensor. Besides, there sits a punch-hole cutout to confine a 20MP selfie camera on the top-left.
On the back, a vertical array of four cameras and dual-LED flash are aligned. The bottom edge of the phone houses bottom-firing stereo speakers and USB Type-C, but no sight of 3.5mm headphone jack.
108MP Quad Camera and Top-Notch Performance
