In January 2015, Xiaomi had launched its first ever Mi Note and Mi Note Pro flagship phones. The Mi Note 2 was announced with the first Mi MIX smartphone in October 2016. After the Mi Note 3 phone was made official in September 2017, Xiaomi hasn’t launched any new Mi Note series phone. In June this year, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had stated that the company won’t be launching Mi Note and Mi Max series of smartphones. However, a reliable tipster from China has claimed that Xiaomi may resurrect the Mi Note series by launching the Mi Note 10 flagship phone by the end of October.
Xiaomi will restart the Note series smartphone, and will release the Xiaomi Mi Note10 flagship mobile phone at the end of October.

Unfortunately, the tipster has not revealed any details on the specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. While the first and second-generation Mi Note phones were packed with flagship specs, the Mi Note 3 was an upper-midrange phone. Nonetheless, the Mi Note 10 is expected to debut as a flagship device. Hence, it is likely to feature the Snapdragon 855+ SoC.
Recent reports by XDA Developers have revealed MIUI 11 beta includes a code for a refresh rate display setting that provides options to switch between 60Hz and 120Hz. Hence, it appears Xiaomi may launch a smartphone with 120Hz refresh rate in the near future. It remains to be seen whether the mysterious phone with 90Hz refresh rate will have an OLED or LCD panel.
The publication has also claimed that the source code of MIUI 11 has references like “tele 5x” and “ultra tele” along with a description that reads “use 50x zoom to capture distant objects in greater detail.” These findings indicate that there could be a Xiaomi smartphone that may offer photography features like 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom. Scouring through MIUI 11 has also revealed that possibly the same smartphone can capture 8K resolution videos at 30fps.
It remains to be seen whether the rumored Mi Note 10 could be equipped with 120Hz refresh rate display with camera capabilities like 5x optical zoom, 50x digital zoom and 8K video recording at 30fps. Readers are advised to wait for further reports to learn more on the specs of the Mi Note 10 smartphone.UP NEXT: Xiaomi launches four Mijia branded Refrigerators in China
