Xiaomi is expected to launch the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in early February. Although Samsung has confirmed the launch date, Xiaomi has not yet announced the time of the announcement of the Mi 10 series. However, a leak was posted on Weibo that says it will happen on February 11th. Some reports claim that the Mi 10 series can be officially demonstrated before Samsung unveils its flagship Galaxy S20 on February 11th.
According to information from the poster, the launch event for Xiaomi Mi 10 will be held in Beijing on February 11. It also demonstrates the back in black and white colors of the Mi 10 or Mi 10 Pro smartphone. As on the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha concept, an array of 4 cameras here is located on a special protruding vertical strip, stretching from top to bottom.
- Smartphone OPPO A15 (2020): received top-end camera and features
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip (2020): features, price and release date revealed
- Smartphone OnePlus 8 Pro 5G (2020): new design, features and characteristics
- Dream of Millions: Sony Xperia 20 5G (2020) revealed in first renders
A closer look at the camera strip reveals the presence of an LED flash after two lenses, followed by a third 108-megapixel sensor, a certain module (probably laser autofocus) and a fourth lens. The backside of the device bends to the edges. The volume key and power key are on the right side. The authenticity of the leaked poster is still impossible to confirm, so it’s better to be skeptical so far.
The characteristics of Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, voiced so far in rumors and leaks, are somewhat contradictory. It is alleged that the Mi 10 will be equipped with a screen with a frequency of 90 Hz, a 4800 mAh battery with a 30-W high-speed charging; rear camera with 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 main module, 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module, 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and 5-megapixel depth sensor. Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro with 5G support will work on the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform.
It is expected that Xiaomi MI 10 Pro will receive a display with a frequency of 120 Hz; 4500 mAh battery with support for high-speed 66-W charging, high-speed wireless and reverse wireless charging; a rear quad camera with a 108-megapixel Samsung main module, a 20-megapixel ultra-wide module, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.
The cost of the Mi 10 series will supposedly be in the range from 3,500 to 5,000 yuan ($ 509– $ 727). The Mi 10 Pro has been spotted on the TENAA certification site, but specifications have not been disclosed.
