Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 in the Mi 10 series

Qualcomm announced its latest flagship processor Snapdragon 865 earlier this month. And even before we had the complete specs of the processor, many of the smartphone brands announced to integrate it into their next flagship phone. One such brand was Xiaomi. Company’s Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman, Bin Lin, announced at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 that the Mi 10 will be powered by the latest flagship processor.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Specs

Let’s start with what we already knew about the device – Snapdragon 865 processor. With this, we can almost be certain that the Mi 10 will be the first of many 5G smartphones that the company promised to launch this year. Qualcomm earlier clarified that the Snapdragon 865 will only come bundled with the X55 modem (for 5G connectivity) though it lacked an integrated modem. The Mi 10 will come with dual-mode 5G support. It will come with three different memory options – 8/128GB, 8/256GB, and 12/256GB.

Talking about the display, the Mi 10 will sport a 6.5-inch AMOLED panel. The display will come with the support of refresh rate up to 90Hz. While its predecessor, Mi 9, came with a notch to hold the selfie camera, we still don’t know if Xiaomi will give it continuity or will go with a punch-hole display instead.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Official Launch

Xiaomi, via its official Weibo account, has confirmed that Mi 10 will be unveiled in China on February 13. Unlike other unveilings by the company, this one will be an online program as pubic gathering in China is quite impossible due to coronavirus outbreak.

As for the international launch, Xiaomi will be bringing the new Mi 10 series to Mobile World Congress 2020. Xiaomi has allegedly sent out invitations for the launch event that is taking place on February 23. Though the specs haven’t been confirmed officially, we believe that the devices won’t vary significantly in terms of specs.
