Some new tips concerning Xiaomi's next flagship phone suggest that it could launch before the 2020 Galaxy Unpacked event. That would make it the first Snapdragon 865 device to be announced this year. In addition, there may be a Mi 10 Pro variant in the offing.

According to some new leaks attributed to Weibo tipsters, the Xiaomi Mi 10's launch event could be held before that of the new Samsung Galaxy S-series phones. Therefore, the Chinese OEM would need to schedule this event prior to February 11, 2020 to make this a reality. However, the bragging rights of officially having the first Snapdragon 865-powered device on the market may be worth it.

The Mi 10 is also currently thought to have an 108MP sensor. The Twitter leaker Ben Geskin has reiterated this in his own latest post on this subject. In fact, he refers to a Mi 10 Pro here, which is slightly confusing as it has most of the same specs as in a previous report. However, this version also apparently has quad 108+48+12+8MP cameras and just 1 12GB RAM SKU.

This putative second Mi 10 variant has 128GB to 512GB internal storage options, and is touted to start at US$550. It may also look much like existing renders for this upcoming Xiaomi phone, and could also have a dual punch-hole camera. Then again, these leaks will be confirmed or denied whenever the new premium device is unveiled.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
