After calling off its MWC 2020 event, Xiaomi has finally announced a new date for the launch Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. The phone maker has announced that it will be unveiling its flagships at an online event on March 27.
The phone's launch in the global markets will come almost a month after it was expected to be launched across the world. This delay in the launch, however, is not expected to have an effect on the sale date of the launch. As such, the phone could go up on sale shortly after its global unveil.
Till now, the Mi 10 series of phones have been available in China, and have been quite popular with buyers. The phone sold out in its first sale in China with the Pro model selling about 40,000 units, with the non-Pro model selling 42,000-50,000 units.
