Xiaomi Mi 10T (Pro): Is it coming?
The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro has become the favorite smartphone of many Xiaomi fans last year. The T-series was brand new and with the release of the Poco F2 Pro we hardly expected a continuation. But now some promising details about a possible Xiaomi Mi 10T and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro have been leaked. And of course, there is probably even a Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite planned.
What we know
There are actually already first leaked pictures of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro, which tell us a lot about the design. On the back, we work with colors similar to those of the Xiaomi Mi 10 and the purple version of the Poco F2 Pro. The camera module, which sits in the upper left corner and resembles the Mi 10 Lite, is a striking feature. However, at least for Xiaomi, the arrangement is new, but reminiscent of the Vivo X50 Pro. The main camera is on its own at the top, below it is a square module with apparently two cameras, flash and another element. This could be a LIDAR scanner or a laser autofocus.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro seems to be equipped with the 108 megapixel camera sensor from Samsung, which is also found in the Xiaomi Mi 10, but not in the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. The normal Xiaomi Mi 10T is supposed to be equipped with a 64 megapixel sensor, probably the Sony IMX686, which is also found in the Mi Note 10 Lite. Nothing is known about the other two sensors yet.
On the front, Xiaomi probably says goodbye to the pop-up design and opts for a punch-hole solution here as well. This means that the front camera is in the upper left corner of the display, just like in the Mi 10. A screen diagonal is not yet known, but it should be 6.67″ again, like in the Mi 10. The first leaks show that the display is probably flat and not curved. That you can expect an AMOLED display here is beyond question. But the refresh rate is questionable. Is the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro even a 144 Hz smartphone? That’s what the information of a leaker points to.
Apart from that, it is probably clear that the smartphone with the code name “apollo pro” (Mi 10T Pro) will probably work at least with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, maybe even with the 865+. With the Xiaomi Mi 10T (codename “apollo”), the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G from the Mi 10 Lite 5G seems likely. The battery is said to have a capacity of 5,000 mAh and thus be larger than in the Mi 10. That MIUI 12 is pre-installed is beyond question.
As always with such leaks, this information has not yet been officially confirmed. But especially since there are pictures and known leakers are involved, the information seems to be realistic. We haven’t received any details about the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite yet. But especially the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro sound very exciting. Especially the large battery and the high refresh rate are interesting. But what do you think about the design change? Would you have preferred to see the Mi 10T Pro with a pop-up front camera?
