Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra hits Geekbench with a Snapdragon 865 Plus and 8 GB of RAM as official case designs leak and a questionable hands-on image surfaces
Xiaomi is a day away from unveiling the Mi 10 Ultra, and it seems that someone has benchmarked the device on Geekbench. Codenamed Apollo, the device has the model number M2007J3SG and appears to have a Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC and 8 GB of RAM. Recent leaks suggest that this is the entry-level model, which has 256 GB of storage and a ceramic back.
The M2007J3SG scored 912 in Geekbench 5 single-core and 3,304 in the same multi-core benchmark. We are yet to test a device with a Snapdragon 865 Plus, but these scores put the M2007J3SG within a margin of error of the Snapdragon 865-powered devices that we have reviewed.
Images of some Mi 10 Ultra accessories have been published online too. All cases, the images have been reposted by the likes of Slashleaks. On the one hand, the retail boxes for two cases have leaked, with one reminding of us of Samsung's Clear View cases. The other is a simple fabric case akin to those that Google designed for the Pixel 4 series. There is also another image of a case that has "100X INFINITY ZOOM" adorned on it, but the whole for the Mi 10 Ultra's camera array seems oversized.
Finally, a supposed hands-on image of the Mi 10 Ultra is circulating online. We have included the image below, but there are multiple reasons to suspect that this image has been faked. Firstly, the camera housing lacks the sharpness of the rest of the image. Secondly, the edges of the housing are unclean, suggesting that someone has photoshopped the housing atop of an existing image. This is compounded by the fact that the housing has not been lined up straight with the back panel. Finally, the lighting of the camera housing is at odds with the lighting casting onto the back panel. So, we would rule this one out unless other proof comes to light.
