We are already in the second half of the years and Chinese manufacturers are getting set to unveil flagship for the second half of the year. In recent times, there have been rumors and speculations regarding a higher version of the Xiaomi Mi 10. Xiaomi usually releases two flagships yearly – the digital series which comes in the first half and the MIX series which arrives in the second half of the year. However, this wasn’t the case last year. The company did not release the “Mi MIX 4” instead, we got the MIX Alpha which never hit the market.
There are rumors the company will launch a new MIX series smartphone quite soon. However, it seems that this will not be the only flagship of the company in the second half of the year. In addition to the MIX, there will be the Xiaomi Mi 10 Super Large Cup. Just recently, Redmi product director, Wang Teng, technically confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi 10 Super Large Cup does exist. His statements suggest that this smartphone is in testing and it will not be cheap.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Super Larg Cup to use a Snapdragon 865+ SoC
With the release of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC, we are expecting Chinese flagships with this chip. Thus it is not a surprise when the Xiaomi M2007J1SC was listed to use the Snapdragon 865+ SoC. In addition, this device will also come with a 120Hz screen. According to Digital Chat Station, it has “three certificates to be announced and ready to be released”.
The reports of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Super Large Cup first hit the web in May. At the time, Digital Chat Station said that this device will debut in August with high zoom capabilities.
In all, the specific name for this smartphone is not known. It could be a Pro Plus version of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series. As for the fast charging power, Lu Weibing previously hinted that 100W fast charging is mature and ready for use. As a reminder, the current price of the top version of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is 5999 yuan ($855). So there is every reason to think it will be the starting point of the Xiaomi Mi 10 series super-large cup.
