A retailer has published a picture of what it claims to be the Xiaomi Mi CC10. The device is shown to have a punch-hole and waterfall display, abandoning the design of the Mi CC9 and Mi Note 10 series. The Mi CC10 is expected to land next month with 108 MP and 12x optical zoom cameras.
Alex Alderson,

An image purporting to be the Xiaomi Mi CC10 has appeared online. The Mi CC10, as its name suggests, would be the successor to the Mi CC9. Xiaomi released the Mi CC9 in July 2019, which it then followed with the Mi CC9 Pro in November. Both devices share the same design language, with a small notch in the top of their displays and a vertically-arranged rear-facing camera housing that starts in the top-left of their back panels.

According to this image, Xiaomi has abandoned this design on the Mi CC10. Published on Alibaba, the image is for a Mi CC10 screen protector listing. The seller is Shenzhen Keja Optoelectronics, which sells thousands of screen protectors on Alibaba. The listing describes the Mi CC10 as having a "3D curved" display, a description which Gizchina posits "indirectly confirm[s] that the device has a waterfall screen." Additionally, the display has a punch-hole for a front-facing camera. The lack of a visible fingerprint scanner suggests that Xiaomi will use an in-display sensor, just as it did with the Mi CC9 Pro.

The listing also shows the back of the device. There is no guarantee that Shenzhen Keja Optoelectronics has been given details about the back of the Mi CC10 though, so this may be guesswork on their behalf. Nonetheless, past rumours have stated that the Mi CC10, codenamed CAS, will have a 108 MP primary camera and a secondary sensor that is capable of delivering up to 12x optical zoom. The same rumour, circulated by Xiaomishka, claims that the device will have a Snapdragon 775G processor.

We expect Xiaomi to announce the follow-up to the Mi CC9 next month.
