Xiaomi just added a new smartphone to the Mi 10 series dubbed the Xiaomi Mi 10S. The smartphone has the exact specifications of the Mi 10 but only differs in the chipset segment. Mi 10s now comes with the newly launched Snapdragon 870 chipset which is faster than the Snapdragon 865 chipset on the Mi 10 series.
