A new smartphone from Xiaomi has passed through Tenaa, which is responsible for certifications in China. The design is very similar to the Mi 10 Ultra.
For 2021, Xiaomi seems to be preparing a very busy smartphone catalog for the high end. After the Xiaomi Mi 11 which will soon land in France, the brand is preparing a Mi Mix 4, and two smartphones capable of being charged wirelessly up to 67W. We also know that the manufacturer is taking a keen interest in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 5G, a chip that should support the Snapdragon 888 on high-end smartphones.
Today, thanks to a certification from TENAA, the Chinese official body, we are discovering a new premium smartphone developed by Xiaomi. Under the model number M2102J2SC, this smartphone takes the design of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra from 2020, with some adjustments.
An international “refresh” of the Mi 10 Ultra?
We recognize in particular the large photo module, except that the lens used to offer a zoom “up to 120x” on the Mi 10 Ultra seems to have been replaced here, we see it with the square periscopic lens which here has become a circular lens.
As a reminder, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra never left China. It was an ultra premium smartphone with a 120x zoom, but also a 120 Hz OLED screen and the ability to receive a charge of up to 120W wired. We may have a slightly reworked international version of the phone in front of us.
In the photos, we can recognize a curved screen on the front, most likely OLED, with a punch at the top left. The back also seems rounded, as if to better match the shape of the hand. The Tenaa certification does not reveal the characteristics of the mystery smartphone, but it seems to correspond to the leaks concerning a new Mi 10 equipped with the Snapdragon 870. Xiaomi could unveil this smartphone very soon to accompany the launch of the Mi 11 with a more accessible price bracket.
