CES is past us and it's time to get ready for the premium flagship phones for 2020. This year, Samsung will announce the new Galaxy S20 series in February while OnePlus is also rumoured to launch its OnePlus 8 series phones earlier than expected. Xiaomi is also part of the race and it did confirm previously that its Mi 10 flagship will be among the first few phones to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset. While Xiaomi is still keeping mum about the Mi 10, leaks have started revealing details and the latest one gives us a glimpse of the Mi 10 for the first time.
Before proceeding with the details, you should know that this leak doesn't come from a verified source. Hence, we are taking this with a pinch of salt. The Instagram channel of TechDroider has shared two images of the alleged Mi 10, showing both the front and device. At first glance, the Mi 10 looks quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10 from the front and the Mi A3 from the back.
At the front, the Mi 10 gets a narrow-bezel fullscreen display with a small cutout for the selfie camera towards the left corner. The bezels are mostly uniform but the chin is slightly thicker. The display also appears to have curved edges on either sides, similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro. The earpiece is also visible on the top bezel. The display shows that it's running a version of MIUI 11 but the Android version hasn't been revealed.
The rear of the phone looks quite similar to the Mi A3 from last year. It gets the same white glass panel with a similar reflective gradient running across the panel. The Xiaomi logo sits vertically aligned in line with the rear camera. The rear camera module itself has four cameras in it with an LED flash accompanying it. There's no vulgar branding of the megapixels or the lens aperture anywhere around the camera, which makes for a clean design.
While many are claiming this leak to be a fake, chances are that this could indeed be the Mi 10. Xiaomi is usually known for launching the Mi series flagships in early February or March and with the tentative launch date lurking close, this could indeed be a prototype device undergoing testing.
Of course, this won't be the only Mi series flagship this year. Rumours suggest another well-equipped Mi 10 Pro with better cameras and extremely faster wireless charging system waiting to take on the OnePlus 8 Pro this year.
