- Xiaomi is expected to launch the Mi 10T series soon.
- There could be three new phones in the lineup.
- The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro has also appeared in renders and live images.
Last year, Xiaomi launched the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro globally as rebranded versions of the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. This year, we’ve already witnessed the launch of the Redmi K30 series, but there’s been no word on Mi 9T successors for global markets. That changes today as the Xiaomi Mi 10T series has appeared in multiple leaks.
Folks over at XDA Developers spotted the first live images of the alleged Mi 10T Pro on an online mobile marketplace called OfferUp. The listing was for a “brand new phone” from Xiaomi with the codename “apollo” and model number M2007J3SG. An XDA member later uncovered code in the latest MIUI 12 beta linking this and similar model numbers to the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro.
After some more digging, the publication found evidence of the codename “apollo” in Xiaomi’s camera app. They were able to determine that the standard model in the Mi 10T series has a 64MP triple camera setup, while the Pro model also has a triple camera array led by a 108MP shooter. The code also suggests that the series will have global as well as Indian variants. You can see the possible live images of the Mi 10T Pro found in the OfferUp listing below.
More evidence for Xiaomi Mi 10T series
Corroborating the information above, tipster Abhishek Yadav also outed the specs of the alleged Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro on Twitter alongside a render of the phone that resembles the live images above.
According to Yadav, the Mi 10T series comprises three phones: Mi 10T, Mi 10T Pro, and Mi 10T Lite. As for the Pro model, the leaker suggests that the phone will get a large 5,000mAh battery, a display with a 144Hz refresh rate, a 108MP primary camera, and possibly a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
As you can see, a lot of specs are missing from this list, including details about the phone’s processor. But from what we can see, the phone doesn’t appear to be a rebranded Redmi K30 or any other device in the K30 series.
Firstly, its vertical rear camera design is clearly associated with other phones in the Mi 10 series in contrast to the round camera housing on all Redmi K30 phones. Secondly, leaked specs of the Mi 10T Pro don’t match any Redmi K30 phone launched till now, the latest one being the Redmi K30 Ultra. You can see the leaked render of the Mi 10T Pro below.
Yadav claims that the new series will launch soon — possibly in the next “10-20 days” — and we’re hoping to hear more about it in the coming days.
