Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship, the Mi 10, is expected to come around sometime next month and we have plenty of leaked info so far. But this is the first time we see the phone in the flesh and it’s a bit different from what we’ve expected.
According to a previous leak, the phone was supposed to have a clean display without notches or cutouts and curves to the sides.
There’s also the chance that the previous leak was about the Pro version of the Mi 10 – Xiaomi’s president confirmed the existence of a Pro version so it would make sense the regular one will settle for a punch-hole design while the Pro model gets full-screen looks.
The back design, however, is in line with what we’ve heard so far, meaning the quad-camera setup is there.
Of course, it could all be just a fake and only time will tell if the phone on the photos is the real deal.
Xiaomi Mi 10 banner reveals design and launch date
Xiaomi’s next Mi flagship has been popping-up hire ant there, from time to time in the last few months, but with little actual accompanying info. A few days ago, a couple of alleged live photos of the device did surface, matching earlier rumors of a quad-camera setup, but also missing the mark on others, like an alleged notch and hole-free display.
we now have an official-looking banner to reference. Instantly, we have to notice the Mi Mix Alpha inspired design, the Mi 10 is rocking. Of course, futuristic wrap-around display in sight, but the strip is definitely a nod in the direction of Xiaomi’s recent tech showcase. So, even though the Mix Alpha might be off the table for good, we might at least get a new distinctive Xiaomi design language out its brief existence.
Kind of pointing out the obvious here, but, nonetheless, also on the banner we find a Snapdragon 865 5G badge. Pretty much expected. Still, it’s nice to see a confirmation for 5G connectivity. Though, it could still be limited to the Mi 10 Pro version, which we do officially know will exist alongside a vanilla. That part remains to be seen. There is also a February 11 date on the banner. It is pretty self-explanatory and a February launch for the Mi 10 has crept up before through the grape vine as well.
