Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro confirmed in MIUI 11 code, will support 66W fast wired charging

Xiaomi will be launching the Mi 10 flagship series in China very soon. The phone succeeds Xiaomi’s existing Mi 9 (review) flagship series and should be built upon similar virtues of bringing a premium experience at a price that makes it more desirable than a real flagship. At the Snapdragon Tech Summit back in December, Xiaomi confirmed that the new device will be powered by the latest and the best – Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. While the date for this year’s launch event is yet to be confirmed, we have just received convincing info that there will be a Mi 10 Pro besides the regular Mi 10 and one of the devices will support 66W fast charging.

Xiaomi namedropped the Mi 10 at the Snapdragon Tech Summit, quashing every other speculation about a special moniker in light of the company’s imminent tenth anniversary. Several rumors and alleged hands-on images of the Mi 10 and the Mi 10 Pro have been making rounds on Weibo but XDA Member kacskrz has compelling information confirming the existence of two different models. According to kacskrz, MIUI 11 v20.1.6 i.e. the nightly build from January 16, 2020, for the Redmi K30 5G confirms the codenames of the two devices along with the marketing names.

The member confirms that the Xiaomi Mi 10 is associated with the code name M2001J2C whereas the Mi 10 Pro is referred to as M2001J1C. This confirmation also helps us corroborate the super-fast 66W charging support on the more powerful out of the two smartphones. While Xiaomi has already teased its much-faster 100W charging technology, we might have to wait for a little while before it becomes commercially available.

Back in November last year, we learned that a phone codenamed M2001J1C, which has now been confirmed to be Mi 10 Pro, passed through China’s CCC certification portal. The listing revealed that the device would support fast charging at up to 66W – by delivering 6A across a potential of 11V. At the time, we believed that this device would be the Redmi K30 5G but that turned out to not be the case.

Notably, the M2001J1C was accompanied by another smartphone codenamed M2001J1E that would also support 66W charging. While there is no evidence to back this claim, the E in the codename might be an identifier for the Explorer Edition, a series which comprises special editions of the last two Xiaomi flagships furnished with transparent back. Do not take this as a confirmation as M2001J1E could just as well be any other flagship phone from the company.

While Xiaomi chose to launch the Mi 9 last year on the same day as the Samsung Galaxy S10 series, we’re not sure of the launch date yet and the on-going Coronavirus epidemic might lead to some unexpected delay. Xiaomi’s co-founder and vice-chairman Lei Jun, however, reportedly assured that the Mi 10 with Snapdragon 865 5G will be launched in the first quarter itself. We’ll update you as we learn more about the company’s plans.
