Even though our 5G network is not yet accessible to members of the public, several manufacturers have begun to release their 5G phones into Malaysia. Among the latest brand that about to join the list is Xiaomi as the 5G variant of its latest flagship, Mi 10 has passed SIRIM’s certification process.
As spotted by the serial SIRIM database observer Kevin Ng TK, the phone was registered as M2001J2G and approved for listing by SIRIM on 6 March. This particular model number on SIRIM database is identical to the details inside a document that Xiaomi has filed to FCC in the United States [pdf].
Even though its actual name was not specifically mentioned inside the document, Xiaomi did mention that the phone has four cameras that feature 108MP, 13MP, and two 2MP sensors. The same FCC document has also mentioned that the phone has a 4780mAh battery which further revealed its identity as the Mi 10.
Back to the listing on SIRIM database, what is interesting about it is that the phone has also been certified as a 5G phone. Not only that, it apparently can support 700MHz and sub-6 (3500/3700MHz) 5G network which we believe could be the main spectrum bands for the 5G network in Malaysia.

But of course, we still have to wait for the official announcement from Xiaomi Malaysia which is likely to take place at least in a few weeks’ time since the official global announcement of Mi 10 will only take place on 27 March. So, stay tuned.
(Thanks for the tips, Kevin!)
