Some of the anticipated telephones of early 2020 is the Xiaomi Mi 10, and new hands-on pictures have given us the primary ‘actual’ footage of it (aside from leaked renders). Followers of Xiaomi telephones would possibly discover these footage eerily acquainted although – they present a tool that appears rather a lot just like the Xiaomi Mi Word 10.

These footage come from TechDroider, who posted them on Instagram. It is not clear the place these footage originated although, and the posting refers to them as a ‘idea system’.

However based mostly on some contextual clues (a wire hooked up to the system, and a visual placard within the background), we might guess it is a media hands-on occasion the place they obtained to check the telephone.

The leaked footage present a smooth system with a curved display screen, a rear digital camera bump within the high left of the again of the telephone, and a punch-hole cut-out front-facing digital camera. Save for this final level, it is extremely comparable when it comes to design to the Xiaomi Mi Word 10 from late 2019, even all the way down to the colour of the system, often known as ‘Glacier White’.

Whereas the Instagram put up refers to this system because the Xiaomi Mi 10, we might count on it is truly the Mi 10 Professional, as we have heard the previous can have a flat display screen whereas the latter can have curved show edges.

We had been fairly huge followers of the Xiaomi Mi Word 10’s design, nevertheless it’s nonetheless stunning simply how comparable the Mi 10 seemingly seems to the older system. Maybe Xiaomi has taken to coronary heart the mantra ‘if it ain’t broke, do not repair it’.

It is price emphasising that this picture is known as a ‘idea based mostly on leaks’, nevertheless it’s virtually unprecedented for somebody to make a bodily system based mostly on leaks. So whereas it is potential that somebody went to loads of effort for this posting, it is also potential that was simply stated to guard a supply (or is a translation error of some variety).

Both method, we’ll discover out for positive within the first few months of 2020 (doubtless at MWC 2020 in February) once we’re anticipating the system to launch. Keep tuned to TechRadar for all the most recent information.
