Mi 10i has become the number one 5G phone in India in terms of shipments, Xiaomi revealed on Friday. The company cited IDC India Monthly Smartphone Tracker for its claim. The Mi 10i was launched in the Indian market in January as a watered-down variant of the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. Xiaomi touted that the Mi 10i was specifically customised keeping the Indian audience in mind. The phone features a quad rear camera setup with a 108-megapixel primary sensor and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC. The Mi 10i is essentially the rebadged Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G that Xiaomi launched in China in November.

Xiaomi India's official Twitter account revealed that the Mi 10i emerged as the number one 5G phone in the country. IDC confirmed to Gadgets 360 that the smartphone's leadership position was based on its shipments recorded in January 2021. The market research firm, however, didn't provide any specific shipment numbers or details about the models that came second and third in terms of shipments.
