A new year just started and Xiamoi seems to have big plans for the year ahead. The company is looking forward to launching more than ten 5G smartphones this year, and the new MI 10 series is expected to be released soon enough. Xiaomi has already confirmed that they are working on the MI 10 series, and references to the Xiaomi MI 10 and MI 10 Pro were found in the MIUI 11 v20.16 code base. The model numbers for MI 10 and MI 10 Pro are M2001J2C and M2001J1C respectively. Recently, there were rumors about the price and specs for the two 2020 Xiamoi premium smartphones on the internet and possibly we also got a hands-on look at the premium variant. The MI 10 and MI 10 Pro seems to differ in terms of battery capacity, memory, and camera setup.
In the last week of January, a Weibo tipster uploaded pics of what they called is the Xiaomi MI 10 Pro 5G. The images and packaging suggest that this could be the name of the smartphone, and the images show a few possible design details about the upcoming device. From the images, we can see that the device will have a curved display with a camera cutout on the left-hand side and a curved glass back panel. It also looks like the handset could feature a quad-rear camera featuring a 108MP primary lens and speaker grills at the top and bottom of the device. We can't quite make out whether the phone has an IR blaster, but we don't see a headphone port.
The picture only shows a mobile phone in one color - deep electric blue. But there would be other color variants that may we know about shortly. The Xiaomi MI 10 is believed to be more affordable than any other phone in the series. As per leaked specs, the MI 10 could feature a 6.5-inch 90Hz OLED display. Xiaomi has officially confirmed that the device will be one of the first smartphones to use the Snapdragon 865 silicon, meaning it will support dual-model 5G network connectivity. The Xiaomi MI 10 is also expected to have a quad-camera setup, with a Sony IMX686 sensor leading the pack. This is the same 64MP sensor featured on the Redmi K30. The other lenses are said to be including a 20MP lens, a 12MP telephoto sensor, a 5MP snapper, and hopefully a 30X digital zoom.
As per reports, Realme may soon launch three smartphones with model numbers RMX2121, RMX2176, and RMX2200 / RMX2201 have been certified by TENAA authority of China. TENAA has full specs and images of the RMX2176 phone. However, the Chinese telecom regulatory body has little information on the specs of the phone. A reliable tipster from China reported some information on the upcoming Realme 8 series phones.
According to the tipster, the upcoming smartphone is a standard Realme series and a higher model. The first device has a 4,300mAh battery and the second has a 4,500mAh battery. Both phones support 65W fast charging. The phone is also reported to be lightweight with long battery life. The Flagship variant is only 4,500mAh and 65W all series that don't exceed 200g. The Realme series has taken a slim profile serious with only 8.xmm phone size. From the weight and slim profile of the unknown series, we can safely assume that the tipster isn't talking about the Realme X series or V5 series as the upper-end variants of these sires houses a larger 4,980mAh rated battery.
The RMX2176 has an AMOLED display with a hole-punch design. It also supports a full HD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The phone is powered by a 2.4GHz octa-core processor that comes with 6GB and 8GB RAM options. The phone available in China may come in 128GB and 256GB storage options. The phone has a 32-megapixel front camera with a quad-camera system on the rear side. The rear camera system includes a 64-megapixel primary camera, 8-megapixel, a 2-megapixel, and a 2-megapixel phone. The phone runs on the Android 10 operating system is expected to be released in blue, white, and symphony color options.
Nokia is known for its affordability and extraordinarily long battery life. And now at the end of the year, HMG Global released another smartphone in the budget category- known as Nokia 2.4. The smartphone runs the latest stock Android 10 operating system out of the box and the latest entry in the budget-category by the company. The phone is an affordable handset and its specifications also fell in the same category.
It features a 6.5-inch HD+ display with 700x1600 pixel resolution, which is good enough to watch videos or play games. The device has a water drop notch in the front. It is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC and is run by a large 4,500 battery pack with the regular 5w charging support which definitely disappoints users looking for fast charging.
The phone isn't too slow or too fast. It features 3GB of RAM which is great if you are a medium level user. The phone is available in two variants with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, which can be further extended via a microSD card slot. Since the device runs on Android One, it runs on the stock Android 10 OS, and most properly receives the Android 11 update as well.
The phone has a dual-camera setup on the rear side, with a 13-megapixel primary sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth lens for portrait shots. The selfie camera is a 5-megapixel camera and the device sports the usual connectivity features like 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, micro USB port for charging. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the rear side with a separate physical button for Google Assistant. The phone only weighs 189 grams. Nokia 2.4 will be available in India for 10,399 INR (estimated around $140). You can purchase the phone in the dusk, Fjord, or charcoal color. It is currently available for pre-booking throughout India, and so far, we don't have any official date when it will hit the market. So, stay tuned for more updates.
