The Galaxy S20 series will be unveiled on February 12. But we have heard the Xiaomi Mi 10 series will be the first to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship platform. So if Xiaomi’s phone is a Snapdragon 865 starter, then it may appear before February 12. As for now, there is speculation that this handset will choose to hit the market on February 11.
However, some media pointed out that the Xiaomi Mi 10 may debut in mid-February, and the specific time may be on February 19 and February 25. And though this is much later than the Galaxy S20 launch, it is ahead of this phone’s release in China.
If the news is true, then the Mi 10 series will miss the first launch of the Snapdragon 865 flagship platform. But this doesn’t mean it won’t be the first to ship with this platform onboard.
On the other hand, the ZTE AXON 10s Pro has obtained the network access license of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Thus, this model is not far from the market launch.
In other words, there is every reason to think the Xiaomi Mi 10 will be announced sometime in February but we still don’t know a specific time. By the way, the Xiaomi Mi 9 was released on February 20 last year and went on sale on February 26.
