Xiaomi has continued its relentless smartphone release schedule with the launch of the Mi 10T series. The Chinese company is renowned for its high quality, low-cost handsets, and with prices ranging from €279 to €649 there's something for nearly every budget. 

The regular Mi 10T makes the move to a 144Hz display, joint best-in-class when it comes to refresh rate. You also get a Snapdragon 865 processor, 6/8GB of RAM and a huge 5000mAh battery. 

With the Mi 10T Pro, the main upgrade is in the camera department, with the device sporting a huge 108Mp primary lens. This enables improved dynamic range, low light performance and 8K video recording, but the two phones are much the same in other key areas. 

The more affordable Mi 10T Lite retains the same core experience as its more expensive siblings, albeit with a less powerful Snapdragon 750G processor. The position of the selfie and rear cameras has moved, but the display comes in at exactly the same resolution and only drops down to 120Hz.

Xiaomi regularly releases phones in its native China before the rest of the world, and with the Mi 10T series there's a completely separate UK launch. Here's how to watch live. 

When is the Mi 10T UK launch?

Xiaomi will launch the Mi 10T series in the UK at 2pm on 19 October 2020. That's despite the company's global launch on 30 September taking place at 1pm UK time, which you can watch back here.

Aside from UK pricing, we're not expecting any major surprises from the second launch event.
