Xiaomi flagship with Snapdragon 870 gets certified with a familiar design Xiaomi Mi 10

The Xiaomi Mi 10 from 2020 marked the company’s re-entry into the premium smartphone space in markets such as India. For 2020, it might be considering launching the series again with improved specifications.

A new high-end Xiaomi smartphone with the model number ”M2102J2SC” recently passed through TENAA, revealing a design very similar to the Mi 10 Ultra. What’s interesting is that this device is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 870 chipset, which will be a step up from the Mi 10’s Snapdragon 865. 

Launched in August, the Mi 10 Ultra was confined to the Chinese market — Its local name was “Xiaomi 10 Premium Edition”. Specifications included 120W fast charging, a 120Hz OLED display, a 108MP primary camera and a zoom lens that could go all the way up to 120x. Six months later, these features remain unmatched.

We don’t expect most of these features to make it to the refreshed Mi 10. Along with the new chipset, it has a curved OLED display, quad-cameras on the rear, an in-display fingerprint scanner and a punch-hole selfie camera. Considering that the camera module is much smaller than the Mi 10 Ultra’s, we wouldn’t be surprised if the 108MP sensor and periscopic telephoto zoom modules get axed.
