Mi 10 Series Teaser Poster Confirms Extravagant Features

Mi 10 Series

Xiaomi will unveil its flagship Mi 10 series smartphone on the 13th of February, at an online-only event. Most insiders believe the event will see the Chinese OEM launching Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. The phones will run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC and will boast of 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. It is not clear at the moment if the RAM will come from the warehouses of Samsung or Micron. Mi 10 Pro may also feature 66-watt fast wired charging. 

Lei Jun leaked teaser poster revealing details on Weibo

In support of the rumors and expectations, Xiaomi has launched a teaser poster on the Chinese social media platform Weibo. Lei Jun, Xiaomi’s co-founder, shared the teaser posters on his Weibo page. So, while it is confirmed that the release is imminent, it also throws light on certain features of the smartphones. 

From the teaser poster, one can infer a number of things about the Mi 10 series smartphones:

  • Mi 10 will sport a 108MP primary sensor, in addition to 3 cameras modules on the back of the smartphone. This means photography enthusiasts can feed their hobby and/or profession. 
  • The smartphones will come with a curved display, which seems to be a trend in recent months. Samsung’s S20 series comes with a curved display too. 
  • The phones are compatible with UFS 3.0 storage, allowing the smartphones to process images very quickly

The Mi 10 series phones come with unique heat-dissipating technology

Mi 10 boasts of the largest VC heat-dissipating board among smartphones currently available. As a result, the phone remains cool for a longer time and performs superbly. The software detects when the smartphone is heating up and helps the device to cool down by dynamically adjusting power consumption and performance. By far, this remains the defining feature of the Mi 10 duo. 

There may be difficulties in being able to purchase these phones in the short term

When the phone is finally unveiled in the next few days, smartphone lovers can heave a sigh of relief that these are no regular phones. They come with some unique features and innovative designs, making them very different from other available smartphones. However, it remains to be seen when the poets will be available in the US, or elsewhere in the world. Chinese products are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and with the new coronavirus situation, there is an unofficial embargo on tech products emerging from China.

Huawei P40 Pro May Sport 7 Cameras and a Ceramic Body

Huawei P40 Pro

Enigmatic phone leaker Evan
Blass, also known by his Twitter handle @evleaks, just shared a rendition of
Huawei P40 Pro. He shared the images on his Twitter account, and the first look
guarantees a very stylish and sturdy design.

More about the Huawei P40 Pro

The phone leaker suggests that
the P40 Pro may come in a ceramic build, with front glass and back panel
sporting curves. The most striking aspect of this design rendition are the five
camera lenses that dominate the back panel of the phone. The Leica-branded
camera may support 18-240mm coverage and 13x zoom. On top of this, the phone is
likely to sport software enhancements compared to its predecessors. The
cellphone also comes with two front cameras for crystal clear selfies.

Connectivity may come via USB-C
port, while the speaker is located at the bottom of the phone. The P40 Pro will
not have a headphone jack, much like many of the newer smartphones these days.
Huawei launched its P-series phones in Paris, last March. Thus, the actual
model will probably be announced very soon. Rumors also indicate that the phone
may not support Google services.

Here are the features of the Huawei P40 Pro in brief:

  • P40 Pro is expected to sport 7 cameras in total
  • 5 cameras will be placed on the back panel,
    while 2 will be on the front of the phone, for taking selfies
  • There won't be a headphone jack, and the speaker
    will be located at the bottom of the phone
  • A USB-C port will help people to connect the
    phone to other devices and plugs
  • A sleek and curvy design will appeal to those
    who are aesthetically inclined

Are Evan Blass’ leaks reliable?

@evleaks is a major source of leaks and information related to smartphones. For a long time, Evan Blass tweeted anonymously, until he decided not to. He has shared important leaks in spurts, and has often been the target of both criticism and praise. Today, he is a well-respected observer and journalist whose information leaks are often true to the mark. Thus, it should not come as a surprise if the P40 Pro looks exactly how it does in the rendered images.
