According to recent report, Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, will release its flagship Xiaomi Mi 10 series and BlackShark 3 gaming phone this month. However, there are now claims that these launch event will take place online. BlackShark co-founder and CEO, Luo Yuzhou, provides the reason for this online launch event.
He said that due to the recent Coronavirus epidemic ravaging China, it is no entirely safe to hold traditional press conferences. Although there is no information on the exact launch date, he said that the company will host a high-quality online launch conference.
Likewise, there are reports that the Xiaomi Mi 10 series launch conference will also hold online. According to a statement from popular Chinese leakster, the Mi 10 series and BlackShark 3 will be released online.
Apart from the fact that it will save the company the risk of dealing with the 2019-nCoV, it also saves Xiaomi extra costs. As of now, there is no official launch date for both events. Nevertheless, there are speculations that the Mi 10 series will arrive on February 13.
As we know, the Samsung Galaxy S20 series will arrive on February 12. If the Mi 10 series arrive on February 13th, this means that Samsung will be the first OEM to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. In terms of price, the starting price of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series may exceed 3500 yuan. However, the top version may hit 4000 yuan or even 5000 yuan.
In the core configuration, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro use a hyperboloid OLED punch-hole display. This smartphone uses a FHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 90Hz. They come with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship platform. We also expect a LPDDR5 memory, UFS 3.0 flash memory, quad-rear cameras, and up to 66W super fast charge. Furthermore, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro may arrive DxOMark for testing. We expect this smartphone to top the chart with its 108MP camera.
