Xiaomi has confirmed that it will launch the Mi Note 10 – successor to 2017’s Mi Note 3 – in global markets on November 14. The phone in question is being claimed to be the world’s first smartphone with a 1080MP penta camera setup. If all this sounds familiar to you, you’re not the only one. The Mi Note 10 seems to be the global variant of the Mi CC9 Pro which is set to be launched in China on November 5.
Xiaomi has already confirmed that the Mi CC9 Pro will come with a 108MP five-camera setup on the rear and while it hasn’t explicitly said that it is rebranding it for global markets as the Mi Note 10 – there's a high possibility that it is. The 108MP penta cameras is one hint of course. The other comes in the form of design. Xiaomi’s Mi Note phones were doing curved screens when not many were doing curved screens. Basis of renders shared by Xiaomi, the Mi CC9 Pro will also come with a curved display – reminiscent to the company’s Mi Note lineup.
Xiaomi has already confirmed some key aspects of the Mi CC9 Pro – the Mi Note 10 should get them too. The Mi CC9 Pro will come with five rear cameras consisting of a 108MP main camera, a 5MP telephoto camera for 5x optical zoom, a 12MP portrait camera, a 20MP ultrawide angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera. On the front, the Mi CC9 Pro will come with a 32MP camera. Under the hood, the Mi CC9 Pro will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor and a 5,260mAh battery with 30W fast charging.
Xiaomi will launch the Mi Note 10 on November 14 in Poland to begin with – unless it launches it elsewhere before that. The Mi Note has always been a China-only affair, which makes the Mi Note 10 different. While it still isn’t confirmed if the Mi Note 10 will be coming to India, at this point of time, the phone launching in global markets is a major shift in strategy for the lineup. This is because the Mi Note has always been about spectacular design and good specs at attractive prices, but limited availability meant it was hard to get for most buyers outside of China.
