The launch of Xiaomi's long-anticipated Mi 10 latest flaghip has been unfortunately interrupted by the new Coronavirus, spreading throughout Asia. According to the newest advancement on that issue, Xiaomi has already sent out invitations for Xiaomi 10 launch scheduled for February 23, which will take place in Barcelona, Spain. Put simply, we are anticipating international announcements as a part of MWC 2020. More than likely - the new flagships Mi 10 and its brother Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. The large number 10 in the banner posted by Xioami on Twitter is a kind of a significant leak, if not meaning anything else.
This however this does not necessarily negate the domestic plans for this pair of gadgets. At least those we remember from the prior leaks. Those inclined an early pre-purchase marketing campaign for Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, scheduled for February 10, later followed by online unveil of both smartphones on February 13. The sales are claimed to start on February 14 for Mi 10 and February 18 for Mi 10 Pro.
A couple of advertising banners were also seen on the official Weibo account of Xiaomi, confirming the the unveil event of 13 February, together with its "pure online live broadcast" character, admitting that it was a challenging choice. So, though we have minimum two established dates, this still looks like a soft schedule due to the circumstances. One of Weibo pictures confirms UFS 3.0 storage for one of Mi 10 flagships, that is fantastic to learn.
No matter what the ultimate launch schedule turns out to be, there are more rumors and leaks coming out every day. So, it should not be too long to wait now. Lately, the Xiaomi Mi 10 flagship pair was noticed in a marketing banner, providing a great, all-round view at the design. Some users could even see hints of Snapdragon 865 as well as a 108 MP camera. Most news agencies agree that both versions are going to be obtain the high resolution snapper and perhaps a 5x zoom module too. The larger Mi Pro is also believed to get a 6.4-inch FullHD+ 120Hz OLED display, fast RAM LPDDR5 (up to 16GB) and 5250mAh battery with 66W fast charging function. Due to 66W the phone can be fully charged from 0% in only 35 minutes, which is a big plus for the battery life.
LPDDR5: What exactly so good about it?
Compared with LPDDR4X of the the previous generation, the biggest advantage of LPDDR5 is that it has the improved transmission rate and lower power consumption. The memory will be divided into 6GB, 8GB and 12GB with data transmission speeds of 5.5Gbps and 6.4Gbps.
In terms of transmission rate, due to Micron’s latest mass-produced LPDDR5 memory chip technology, the transmission rate of low-power DDR5 is up to 6.40Gbps, which is nearly twice as fast as LPDDR4 (3.20Gbps) and more than 20ster than LPDDR4X (4.26Gbps). Access speed is increased by 50%.
In 2020, LPDDR5 memory will undoubtedly become the standard for all flagship mobile phones, which will better meet the needs of 5G, high resolution camera and largee gaming applications. The capacity will mainly be 8GB or 12GB.
A brand new LPDDR5 era is coming. The Snapdragon 865 + LPDDR5 + UFS3.0 package will become the standard for most 5G flagship phones in 2020.
As Xiaomi has cooperated with Qualcomm for a long time, it is natural to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 on Xiaomi 10. According to the current news, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is based on TSMC's 7nm process technology and uses 1 + 3 + 4 8-core design (1 2.84GHz A77 super core, three 2.4GHz A77 large cores and four A55 1.8GHz cores), which has improved performance by 25% compared to the previous flagship.
Camera: 5x zoom?
As far as new Mi flagship camera is concerned, Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group, posted two photos of the snow scene on his social media that are suspected to be taken by Xiaomi 10.
Based on other leaks in the Internet, it is worth looking forward to the Mi 10 series rear shooting performance. It is supposed that the main difference between Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi CC9 Pro is in five-time optical zoom lens; other parameters are basically the same, including a 100-megapixel lens. We hope that after a year of optimization, Xiaomi 10's photos will be worth waiting for.
The SONY Hi-Res Audio indirectly verified on the packaging box of Xiaomi Mi 10, hints that the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will come with true stereo dual speakers. Presumably, Xiaomi wants to get a good ranking in terms of audio in addition to stunning photos.
