Xiaomi is rumoured to be introducing a Plus version of its Mi 10 Pro smartphone sometime soon. According to recent reports, a listing of the alleged device was spotted in AnTuTu along with a total score of 687,422 – the highest that was ever recorded on the benchmark. It is speculated that the phone is equipped with an overclocked Snapdragon 865 chipset, and a new leak suggests that it will also feature a GPU customisation tool.
The discovery for the latter was reported by reliable leaker Ice Universe in his latest tweet, which included screenshots of the alleged phone’s Game Turbo control panel UI. The leaker brought to light that the tool is developed by Xiaomi, with the collaboration of Qualcomm’s GPU team.
Super Leak：Xiaomi Mi10 Pro+ has a unique feature: Game Turbo, a mode developed by Xiaomi and Qualcomm's GPU team, which is unprecedented. You can use it to adjust GPU parameters and modes, including GPU frequency adjustment and so on. pic.twitter.com/Tu609T7Dy9

According to Ice Universe, Game Turbo will enable users to adjust GPU parameters and presets. Although he claims that the settings will also allow for GPU frequency adjustments, it is not exactly shown in the screenshots provided. Instead, we only see customisation options to adjust the intensity for anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering and texture filtering. Parameters such as these are somewhat elaborate for a first party GPU customisation tool, but not entirely unique.
Whether this leak and the alleged specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Plus are accurate remains to be seen. The company has not confirmed the phone’s existence at this time, but that may soon change once it is ready to let the cat out of the bag.
