Xiaomi Mi 10 screen protector leaks showing curved glass, no holes
Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro flagship smartphones together, possibly at Mobile World Congress in February. Earlier this year a full list of purported specs for both models leaked, and today we have an alleged shot of a tempered glass screen protector for the Mi 10.
This shows us that the phone's display will be curved, at least on two sides, but possibly even on all four (although the curvature is unsurprisingly much more pronounced to the left and right).
The panel seems to have incredibly small bezels all-round, with only the chin sticking out somewhat - still much less than any previous Xiaomi handset, though. There are no visible holes in the screen protector nor cutouts for a possible notch, which might make you think that it will boast an under-display selfie camera.
However, the leakster who provided this image says that there are in fact holes - plural - to be found. So we wouldn't be surprised to see a dual punch-hole design. The screen protector doesn't need a cutout for those. It looks like pop-up selfie cameras are going the way of the dodo in 2020, to be replaced, for starters, with punch-holes mostly, but also some notches here and there for good measure (mostly in the more affordable devices).

So well said! Just to add that the screen protectors are not only more expensive, but they are not as good as the flat ones. I am on the third one on my Note9 and at the end I had to resort into an old fashioned film type in order to get acceptable...

I'm not a fan of curved screen. My Mate 20 Pro screen doesn't break just because it's curved. However, I think it will break if I drop it ... just like flat screens. Is it more expensive to replace? Of course.
