We’re wanting ahead to a number of huge telephone launches within the coming weeks, and now it appears that evidently two new flagships might flip up on the similar time: a leak means that the Xiaomi Mi 10 will probably be unveiled on the identical day that we already know the Samsung Galaxy S20 will probably be introduced.
This leak comes from tech web site GizChina, which has shared a leaked promotional poster for the Xiaomi Mi 10. It is unclear the place GizChina bought the poster from – it cites Chinese language social media platform Weibo, however the web page linked does not characteristic the poster. Nonetheless, there’s nothing in regards to the poster to counsel that it is faux, both.
In line with the poster, the Xiaomi Mi 10 will launch on February 11 – that’ll be a China occasion although, so in different elements of the world it might be February 12. We already know that February 11 is the date of Samsung’s Unpacked occasion in San Francisco, at which it is anticipated to launch the Galaxy S20 telephones, in addition to, we predict, the Galaxy Fold 2 and a few new true wireless earbuds.
If this date is correct, it is intriguing that Xiaomi is launching its new telephone so near the Samsung occasion, because the latter is ready to dominate the tech information round these dates. It is also price stating that we had been anticipating the Mi 10 to be the primary telephone to launch with the brand new Snapdragon 865 chipset, but as a result of time distinction between China and the US it might be that the Galaxy S20 will declare that title.

In addition to the launch date, the leaked poster additionally has photographs of what the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Professional will seem like, and so they’re not fairly what we anticipated. Beforehand we might heard that the Mi 10 would look remarkably like the Mi Note 10 from late 2019, however primarily based on this poster they give the impression of being extra like one other Xiaomi telephone.
The 2 telephones proven within the poster have all their cameras in a black strip down the left aspect of the gadget. It is actually a novel look in comparison with most different smartphones – together with Xiaomi units, which frequently seem like pretty ‘commonplace’ Android handsets – however now we have seen this strip earlier than, within the Mi Mix Alpha concept phone.
There is no 180% screen-to-body ratio proven right here, as on that gadget, however it might be that Xiaomi is borrowing the digital camera format from the Combine Alpha. Does that additionally imply there is no digital camera bump (earlier Xiaomi telephones had fairly a outstanding one)? Properly, not for certain, however we might think about so.
It appears there are 4 rear cameras on the telephones, as we have heard beforehand, however we won’t inform rather more in regards to the Xiaomi Mi 10 or Mi 10 Professional simply but. If this leak is to be believed, although, we do not have lengthy to attend earlier than we discover out extra.
