The Xiaomi Mi 9T was released in June 2019. Information about a potential successor boiled down to a code name, Apollo, and some technical specifications.
But that has now changed with this new leak giving a good look at the upcoming Mi 10T Pro ahead of its official launch.
XDA Developers discovered the first images of the alleged Mi 10T Pro on an online mobile marketplace called OfferUp. On the back of the phone, you can see the number of model M2007J3SG. The site then discovered a piece of code in the latest beta of MIUI 12 that connects this model number to a number that corresponds to the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro.
According to the information disclosed, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro will be equipped with a LCD screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. This high refresh rate has become mandatory to enjoy a good browsing experience. However, we may regret the presence of an OLED screen. The battery would have a capacity of 5000 mAh.
The device should be powered by the Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865 Plus, as a benchmark previously revealed. On the camera side, it should carry a 108 MP sensor, which had already been unveiled last month. The phone has, according to the images, 2 other photo sensors on the back, as well as a selfie sensor housed in a punch on the front.
The phone wouldn't come alone
Indeed, the leaks evoke a total of 3 phones. We would be entitled to a Mi 10T, a Mi 10T Pro and a Mi 10T Lite, which should succeed the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite. The phones should therefore all succeed the Mi 10 series, which we had been able to test.
Thanks to the absence of an OLED screen and other concessions on these versions, these should be sold cheaper than the phones already marketed by Xiaomi. We can expect a lower selling price, between the Poco F2 Pro (€ 499) and the Mi 10 (€ 799).
