“Mi 10 is the upcoming flagship offering from Xiaomi, rumoured to sport 108MP quad rear cameras and Snapdragon 865 SoC”
Xiaomi is expected to launch its flagship phones, Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, in China on February 13th, followed by a global launch at MWC 2020 on February 23rd in Barcelona, Spain. Ahead of that, the vanilla Mi 10 smartphone has surfaced on Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) with model number M2001J2I. The same model number along with the product name and Wi-Fi bands have also been spotted on Wi-Fi certification agency. This indicates that the Mi 10 is heading to India and could be the same 108MP phone that Xiaomi teased a couple of months ago. If so, the Mi 10 could be the vendor’s first Mi-series smartphone launched in the country since Mi 5 from 2017.
Mi 10 series specifications
The listings, unfortunately, don’t add anything to the Mi 10 series specifications that we already know. Both Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are rumoured to pack Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC. The chipset will be paired with the new LPDDR5 RAM module, which is said to be faster and more power-efficient than the previous-gen LPDDR4X module. The phonemaker could ship the handset with up to 16GB RAM and 256/ 512GB built-in storage. Additionally, the handsets are expected to sport a punch-hole display and run Android 10-based MIUI 11 out of the box.
The Mi 10 series is also rumoured to feature quad rear cameras with a 108-megapixel Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright HMX primary sensor. The phones may come with connectivity options such as 5G, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0. Other highlights may include a beefy battery cell, fast charging tech, wireless charging support, and an in-display fingerprint scanner – the details of which, however, remains vague at the moment.
