The Xiaomi Mi 10 is one of the most awaited phones in 2020. The phone has been leaked quite a bit for some time now. After teasing a couple of sample cameras shots from the phone, Xiaomi has now revealed more information on the launch of the Mi 10. The company confirmed on Chinese social media site Weibo that the Mi 10 will be announced on February 13.
However, the launch will be an online-only event. This will be the first time Xiaomi will launch a flagship phone without the media attending. The Mi 10 was expected to launch around mid-February. The phone was also competing with the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, to be the first phone announced with the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC.

While a hands-on experience with the phone will not be possible with the Mi 10 during the online launch, Xiaomi might showcase the phone during the upcoming MWC 2020 event in Barcelona, Spain. Xiaomi is one of the companies that has still not pulled out of the upcoming event in Barcelona. Brands including LG, ZTE and Nvidia have withdrawn their participation from the event because of the ongoing novel coronavirus crisis.
