Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro: New update pushes performance to record-breaking levels
The Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro have been successes for Xiaomi, at least in China. While the rest of the world awaits the company's latest flagships, Xiaomi has been selling tens of thousands of Mi 10 series handsets in batches. The company has already issued the first software update for the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, too. Called V18.104.22.168.QJACNXM, the update introduces the following, as summarised by Gizmochina:
- Improved the sound quality of the speakers.
- Fixed cellular data related issues.
- Improved the speed of WeChat red envelope notification prompt on mobile network
- Updated the Android security patch to February 2020.
- Optimized the weak signal of WLAN 5G bands.
- Fixed network and latency issues with WiFi connections and a few other minor improvements as well.
V22.214.171.124 also updates the driver of the Adreno 650, the GPU that Qualcomm integrates within the Snapdragon 865. While this is not necessarily a noteworthy change, the updated GPU driver has allowed the Mi 10 Pro to achieve a record-breaking score in AnTuTu v8.
According to a post on Weibo, the Mi 10 Pro can now score over 610,000 points in the popular benchmarking tool. However, we do not expect the Mi 10 Pro to achieve this lofty score when we test it though, as the score was achieved in artificial conditions. The same post describes that the Mi 10 Pro was hooked up to a cooling pad, for instance, and was also benchmarked in a fridge at supposedly 60.5 °F. OnePlus smartphones typically outscore other Android OEMs in benchmarks, so it will be interesting to see whether the Mi 10 Pro can challenge the OnePlus 8 Pro later this year.
