Video Clones, meanwhile, captures “two selves” in one video, while dual video can record from the device’s front and back cameras simultaneously.
The 5G-enabled Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T feature a 144Hz refresh rate, which "guarantees a smooth experience and optimum battery usage".
The Mi 10T is available for preorder at Dh1,799, while the Pro version will come in December for Dh1,899.
