MIIT listing confirms 5G connectivity for August-bound Xiaomi flagship smartphone
There have been quite a few rumours about Xiaomi releasing a new flagship under the Mi 10 brand. Most recently, Redmi Product Director Wang Teng confirmed that such a device was in development, with leaked marketing material referring to it as the Mi 10 Pro+.
Now, a Xiaomi smartphone bearing the model number M2007J1SC has surfaced on MIIT, a Chinese certification authority. According to Digital Chat Station, a popular source of upcoming hardware information on Weibo and Twitter, M2007J1SC is a flagship device. This device will apparently launch in August.
While it is unclear whether M2007J1SC is the Mi 10 Pro+, MIIT has confirmed that the M2007J1SC supports 5G. Digital Chat Station claims that M2007J1SC actually represents three smartphones, not one.
If it is the Mi 10 Pro+, then the device is rumoured to feature a 120 Hz display, 65 W charging and a 12x optical zoom lens. There have been some suggestions that the M2007J1SC will be the Mi CC10, the rumoured successor to the mid-range Mi CC9. Better known as the Mi 9 Lite, the Mi CC9 has a Snapdragon 710 SoC. A successor to the Mi CC9 would not fit with Digital Chat Station's claim of the M2007J1SC being a flagship, in our opinion. There has been talk of Xiaomi releasing a new Mi Mix smartphone too, but nothing appears to link the Mi Mix brand to the M2007J1SC.
