Both phones will be cheaper than the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S20 series.
The Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro went on sale in China at 10am on 14 February, with prices starting at 3,999 yuan (£442/US$573) and 4,999 yuan (£552/$716) respectively. There is currently no word on UK/EU pricing or availability but it will be higher than the Chinese prices.
The Mi 9 launched at £499 for 8GB/128GB and this is likely to increase for the Mi 10.
Realme X2 Pro is currently available for 439 Euros/£370. So it is like that Realme will undercut Xiaomi.
