Xiaomi accidentally leaks the specs for the Redmi 10
Specs for the upcoming Redmi 10 were accidentally leaked by Xiaomi itself
Updating a handset’s screen every 90 seconds can put a serious dent in its battery life. But by dropping the refresh rate down when the content on the screen is static (when emails and texts are displayed, for example) and hiking it to make scrolling and animations buttery smooth, users should get plenty of life from the 5000mAh battery that powers the phone. While the battery supports 18W fast charging, the Redmi 10 will ship with a 22.5W charger.
The device is equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and Android 11 based MIUI 12.5 is pre-installed out of the box. About the only thing that Xiaomi failed to share was the pricing of the new phone. It does have a premium look compared to the predecessor model and anything that Xiaomi didn’t blab about should be revealed by them this coming week.
Xiaomi was temporarily blacklisted by the U.S. Department of Defense
Not that Xiaomi wasn’t targeted by the Trump administration earlier this year. Just a week before Donald Trump left office, Xiaomi was one of nine Chinese firms blacklisted by the U.S. because of an award that Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun received from China’s MIIT; this is the government agency that oversees the country’s policies related to technology and industrial policy.
Because of the blacklisting, U.S. investors in Xiaomi would have been forced to sell their holdings in the company by this November. However, in May the U.S. Department of Defense agreed to remove the company from the blacklist and would no longer be “designated a Communist Chinese Military Company.”
