Do not be fooled by the latest round of fake Xiaomi Mi 10 leaks
The Mi 10 series could arrive any day now, with Xiaomi reportedly planning to upstage Samsung by launching its next flagships before Galaxy UNPACKED on February 11. The Chinese company has already confirmed that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC will underpin the Mi 10, which integrates an Adreno 650 GPU among other components, but other details are scant at this stage.
A recent post on Slashleaks, originally from Weibo, may have given an insight into the capabilities of the Snapdragon 865 and its Adreno 650, though. The photo, which we have included below, shows a device scoring 560,217 points in AnTuTu v8, or about 15% more than the Snapdragon 855 Plus in the OnePlus 7T Pro did we tested it last year. The device outscores the OnePlus 7T Pro by approximately 23% in the CPU benchmark and 5% in the GPU benchmark, for reference.
The Mi 10 is also expected to feature four rear-facing cameras, which is reflected in another photo from the same post. While the vertically-arranged sensors resemble those in the Redmi Note 8, there is one key difference that distinguishes the two. Anyone familiar with recent Xiaomi smartphones will know that many, including the Redmi Note 8, have a silver ring surrounding the primary rear-facing camera. By contrast, the device here does not possess the same ring, although we appreciate this is not much to go on.
Separately, photos claiming to be of the Mi 10's display have appeared online too. While the photos have a 100% trust rating on the website, they look remarkably like the display of the Redmi K30, even down to the placement and angle of its display cable. Finally, a supposed retail box of the Mi 10 Pro has also been doing the rounds, a photo of which we have included below. The photo has been condemned as a fake by multiple respected leakers, though.
