Similarly, there are rumors that the device would be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC instead of the newer Snapdragon 865+, such as the one present inside the ROG Phone 3. It seems that the new Qualcomm chip has high costs. Hence several manufacturers have launched their flagship phones revamped with the Snapdragon 865 SoC; such is the case of the recently presented Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra.
The smartphone is expected to pack a 5,000mAh battery capacity with support for 30W fast charging via USB-C. This was discovered through its certification by the TÜV Rheinland entity. Meanwhile, its certification in the NCC entity revealed that it would come with WiFi 6, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, and internal storage of up to 512 GB. Although, it is expected that there will be more configurations with less storage capacity.
