Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro confirmed by regulator certifications; expect premium hardware for half the price of a Samsung Galaxy Note 10
An image of the marketing material for the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 has only been languishing online for a short time now, and it seemed many believed the picture was a forgery. However, MySmartPrice and leaker Sudhanshu Ambhore have shared documents from several agencies that prove the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro are on their way.
Very little is known about the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 series, and the manufacturer has remained impressively tight-lipped about the devices so far. We have model numbers for the smartphones: The Mi Note 10 is M1910F4G and the Mi Note 10 Pro is M1910F4S. It’s also been revealed that the phablets/smartphones have been certified for European and South Asian markets so far. But apart from a glimpse at a decorative box, there have been no leaked device images or hardware specifications so far.
Of course, with the complete lack of information beyond the above details, some have taken it upon themselves to have a crack at guessing the hardware, release date, and price. The release date seems to be the easiest to speculate on, as it’s already been suggested it will be later this month (although that would be cutting it very fine). However, we can expect to see the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro before the year is over.
As for hardware, a consensus is starting to build that points at the SD 855+ SoC, an incredible camera system, a potential 120 Hz display, and 8 or 10 GB RAM with 128 GB or 256 GB storage options. The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro are expected to run on MIUI 11 and feature in-display fingerprint scanners, fast-charging capability, and there is some hope that they will have batteries with capacities that are closer to 5000 mAh than 4000.
It’s worth adding a further reminder that this is all wishful thinking at the moment, although it’s likely Xiaomi will start drip-feeding some factual information about the Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro soon. But what if the speculation matches what the Chinese manufacturer releases? With the possibility of the regular Mi Note 10 costing less than half of a Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Xiaomi could be set to seriously ruffle some feathers in the smartphone industry.
