Does the Xiaomi Mi 10/Mi 10 Pro finally support the USB 3.1?

All previous Xiaomi phones have only USB 2.0 support. Also the Black Shark series (gaming smartphones).

Hello,
Is it a problem Mi 10 supports only USB 2.0? Should I abstain from buying?
Regards

I don't see USB 2.0 as a major issue, since I don't really use USB to transfer stuff to/from my phones. But I may be missing something.

To me, the lack of secure Face unlock is a bigger issue. I have the Mi Note 10 and the fingerprint sensor is hit or miss and pretty frustrating. It seems to be affected by lighting conditions and of course freshly washed hands.I have to punch in the code about 30% of the time. Under screen FP sensors just suck, which is why Apple simply decided not to use them.

I will jump in and say that you are correct about in display fingerprint readers - the current technology available simply sucks compared to the old fashioned fingerprinter readers of yesteryear. I change phones every few months, and I truly missed the old fp readers - they were always dependable. I have used the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy S10 (though their tech is based on ultrasonic scanner), Xiaomi Mi 9, and the OnePlus 7... only the OnePlus 7, because they have a larger embedded scanner and scanning area was really usable.

I am waiting on the Mi 10 only hoping that it is at least a better than the Mi 9. Not many YouTubers have reviewed these fingerprint readers in depth except one or two but then again it all comes down to personal usage.

Bump!

Can anyone with the device actually check?

USB 3.0 implies displayport video over hdmi cable, which makes it super easy to connect the phone to TV screens, mouse/keyboard/storage and turn it into pocketable computer:)

I just have a Xiaomi Mi8, it uses USB2.0, and it's really exasperating.
I use it very often to upload the videos I have recorded and to download maps and other stuff, and it takes 20 times more time than other smartphones with usb3.0.
It's unacceptable that Xiaomi keeps using this very old connection protocol.
