Xiaomi could soon launch the Mi 10i as it has been spotted in a listing on Geekbench. The Mi 10i is rumoured to be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G that was announced in November alongside the Redmi Note 9 4G and Redmi Note 9 5G. Interestingly, Xiaomi is already teasing the launch of a new Redmi phone in India but if previous leaks are to go by, that could be the Redmi 9 Power.
The listing on Geekbench mentions the model number of a Xiaomi phone as M2007J17I which lines up with the listing spotted on Google Play Console. The listing also reveals the base clock frequency of the processor as 1.80GHz which is likely the Snapdragon 750G. Having said that, there is no word on the launch of another Redmi phone in India at the moment.
Xiaomi has started teasing the launch of a new Redmi phone that is rumoured to be the Redmi 9 Power. As per previous reports, the company may be bringing the Redmi Note 9 4G to India as the Redmi 9 Power, though with a quad-camera setup instead of three cameras. Additionally, the company has also scheduled the launch of its QLED TV in India on December 16.
Nevertheless, if the Mi 10i does turn out to be the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G in disguise, here is a brief look as to what we can expect.
