The upcoming Snapdragon 865-equipped Mi 10 was previously announced by Xiaomi Vice Chairman Bin Lin last year during the Snapdragon Tech Summit held in Hawaii. Little else is known about the phone, but a recent leak could actually give us some insight to its design and camera setup.
The leak was uploaded by a tipster on Weibo which showcased alleged live images of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro 5G shown in various angles. The Pro variant sports a curved display with a punch-hole cutout for its front-facing camera on its upper left, and could feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Other details spotted include a volume rocker and lock button situated on its right, as well as a SIM card tray and USB-C port on its bottom. Featured on the top and bottom of the phone are speaker grilles that would produce stereo audio when the phone is positioned horizontally.
Camera-wise, the leak reveals that the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro features a quad camera setup, but its uncertain what sensors it might be equipped with. Most sources have speculated that the phone may also include a similar 108MP main camera which was featured on last year’s Mi Note 10.
Besides the phone itself, the leak also showcased the Mi 10 Pro’s packaging – a matte black rectangular box decked out “10” and “Pro 5G” wordings and Xiaomi branding, arranged in a minimalist design. An image of the phone’s charger was included as well, which reveals its 65W fast charging capability.
Lastly, the tipster mentioned that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 10 series will launch on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2020. However, the post containing the leak on Weibo has been deleted, and its legitimacy is still debatable for now. If the suggested release date is accurate, we should be hearing an official announcement by Xiaomi very soon.
