S10 Plus is a remarkable achievement with all the superiority in its specifications.

5G is not an "own" update, because Mi Mix 3 5G has also been updated with the latest chipset, Snapdragon 855. Unfortunately, to allow the Mi Mix 3 5G to have an affordable price, Xiaomi was forced to cut its internal storage to 64GB (initially 128GB). In addition to the chipset and internal storage, other parts of the Mi Mix 3 5G have not changed.
