This is Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 10T Pro flagship smartphone
Xiaomi’s Mi 10 series is the company’s current flagship lineup, and it consists of the Mi 10, the Mi 10 Pro, the Mi 10 Lite, the Mi 10 Lite Zoom, and the Mi 10 Ultra. Xiaomi isn’t quite done expanding its Mi 10 series, though. Recent rumors point to the company launching a new “Mi 10T” series, and we now have what we think are the first live images of the highest-end model in this new series: the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro.
Over on OfferUp, an online mobile marketplace, we spotted a listing (h/t @Tech_Savvy) for a “brand new phone” from Xiaomi with the code-name “apollo” and model name M2007J3SG. We cross-referenced the two IMEIs shown in the About Phone screen with an IMEI database to confirm that the device’s model name is indeed M2007J3SG. Furthermore, XDA Member (and frequent Xiaomi tipster) kacskrz uncovered code within Xiaomi’s latest Android 11-based MIUI 12 beta that ties the model names M2007J3SC, M2007J3SI, M2007J3SP, M2007J3SG, and M2007J3SY to the marketing names of Xiaomi Mi 10T and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro. We also found references to the “apollo” code-name in Xiaomi’s camera app, revealing that the standard model has a 64MP triple camera setup while the “apollo pro” model has a 108MP triple camera setup. That same code suggests there will be global and Indian versions of “apollo” and “apollo pro,” so we can expect the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro to launch globally.
The OfferUp listing has 8 photos, 5 of which show the rear and 3 of which show the front of the Mi 10T Pro. The color of the back cover looks wildly different in each photo because of the different lighting, though it’s likely that the color seen in the image on the far right in the gallery below most closely represents the actual color. We think that’s the case because it matches the color shown in a leaked render published by Twitter user Abhishek Yadav.
Possible live images of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro
The 3 photos showing the front of the Mi 10T Pro confirm that the device has thin bezels and a single hole-punch cutout on the left. These images are clearly of a pre-production unit since the software shown is stock Android 10 rather than MIUI 12.
Some of the specs of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro may include a 5,000mAh battery, a 144Hz display, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, according to @yabhishekhd. We can’t corroborate the battery capacity or fingerprint scanner placement, but kernel source code analysis does corroborate 144Hz refresh rate support. We also learned from kernel sources that the device will likely be powered by either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 or the Snapdragon 865 Plus. We don’t have information about the other specifications of the device, the pricing, or the launch date, but we’ll likely learn more about the Mi 10T Pro soon given that press renders and live images have already started to leak.
