After a hiatus of two years, Xiaomi’s Mi Note lineup is ready to be revived again. Xiaomi, in a Twitter post, has confirmed that the Mi Note 10 with the world’s first 108MP Penta camera is on its way to launch. The confirmation comes after the Mi Note 10 was recently certified in Thailand and Russia alongside the Mi Note Pro.
Hot on the heels, Xiaomi has also teased the Mi CC9 Pro, which will see the daylight in China as early as November 5 with the same 108MP Penta camera onboard. It is speculated that the Mi Note 10 would be the global variant of the Mi CC9 Pro.
Since the Mi Note 10 happens to share the 108MP Penta camera of the Mi CC9 Pro and has been certified outside of China, this speculation seems valid.
Besides, a tipster called Mukul Sharma recently tweeted that the Mi Note 10 and Mi CC9 Pro will share a lot of the same features but will differ mainly in terms of processor. However, he didn’t specify if the Mi Note 10 will indeed be the global version of the Mi CC9 with any tweaks.

As per the previous leaks, the Mi CC9 Pro is likely to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, which brings a 15% boost in graphics compared to the Snapdragon 730 SoC. So, for differentiation, the Mi Note 10 is expected to be driven by the Snapdragon 855 or Snapdragon 730 SoC. The latter one is more probable, however.
Xiaomi hasn’t confirmed as to when the Mi Note 10 will launch, but it seems imminent since the company is billing it as the world’s first 108MP Penta camera smartphone. It should be launched in November, but if the veil gets off right alongside the Mi CC9 Pro, there won’t be any surprises.
Regarding specs of the Mi Note 10, nothing is known as yet. However, the Mi Note 10 (also the Mi CC9 Pro) will mount the 108MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor, which has been developed by Samsung in collaboration with Xiaomi. Like the Mi CC9 Pro, the Mi Note 10 is also likely to come with 5x optical zoom capability.
Earlier this year, HMD Global launched the Nokia 9 PureView as the first smartphone with Penta camera setup. However, with the inclusion of a 108MP primary camera, the Mi Note 10’s camera setup will boast better configuration. Also, the five cameras in the Mi Note 10 will be arranged in a vertical layout at the top-left corner of the back panel as against the circular Penta camera setup found in the Nokia 9 PureView.
More details about the Mi Note 10 are expected to surface in the coming days. So keep an eye out for our next update. Stay tuned.
