Xiaomi is a Chinese electronics company founded by Lei Jun in 2010 and headquartered in Beijing. The company makes and invests in smartphones, mobile apps, laptops, bags, trimmers, earphones, MI Television, shoes, fitness bands, and many other products. Ranked 468th, Xiaomi is the youngest company on Fortune Global 500 List for 2019.
Xiaomi released its first smartphone in August 2011 and rapidly gained market share in China to become the country’s largest smartphone company in 2014.
Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are a flagship Android smartphone by Xiaomi.The company is again about to launch the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro and we’ve been seeing multiple leaks for the past few weeks. The latest one comes from China, of course, and it is a screenshot of the About page of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.
The image suggests the phone will have 16 GB RAM and 512 gigs of storage, along with other impressive specs. We haven’t seen a smartphone with 16 GB RAM yet, and there are just a handful of devices on the market that have 12 GB, so we are either looking at a revolution or a fake image.
Looking at the image, some of the stuff isn’t that surprising – Snapdragon 865 chipset was confirmed as soon as Qualcomm introduced it, and a 6.4” screen with Full HD+ resolution is hardly an innovation. What we do expect, however, is to have an impressively high refresh rate of 120 Hz which appears to be the trend in the first weeks of this year.
The cameras are four, and the mightiest appears to be 108 MP. We’ve seen the sensor in the Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro, but the latter has one extra layer on the lens for better night images. Whether or not Xiaomi will do the same thing to the Mi 10 lineup, we’re yet to see.
The battery’s typical charge is listed as 5,250 mAh, and we’ve already spotted the phone get certified with a 65W charger (that was later photographed). This means the power cell might be big, but it will top up in no time, with rumors suggesting no more than 35 minutes.
There are still a lot of unknowns in the air about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro phones, but they are going to be among the first SD865-powered devices and there is a lot of hype around them. We’ll keep following the rumor mill and update you with everything new about the phone.
