Xiaomi is expected to soon announce its Xiaomi Mi 10 series of flagship phones. Rumors have so far revealed that the lineup includes Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro smartphones. Xiaomi’s Product Manager Wang Teng Thomas shared a Weibo post and then seems to have deleted it quickly. A screenshot of the deleted Weibo post revealed that pricing and release date of the Mi 10 series.

In the Weibo post, Teng has suggested buyers to go for Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro or Redmi K30 smartphones if they needed a smartphone under the 3,500 Yuan (~$505) pricing. However, users who are looking for an expensive and premium phone can wait for the Chinese year to end.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G smartphone was introduced with a starting price of 3,699 Yuan (~$533). Hence, there is a possibility that the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro phones could be priced between 3,500 Yuan (~$505) and 5,000 Yuan (~$721). As far the launch of the Mi 10 series is concerned, Xiaomi may announce it after the upcoming Spring Festival of China (after Jan. 25). Hence, it may debut earlier in February.

Past reports have revealed that the Xiaomi Mi 10 series will be equipped with an AMOLED display with punch-hole design. Known tipster and designer Benjamin Geskin has shared the render of the Xiaomi Mi 10 based on the rumors surrounding it. A leaked photo of the phone that had surfaced last week had revealed that it is equipped with a vertical quad camera setup.
