The next flagship phone of Xiaomi is about to come dubbed as Mi 10. Don’t get you wrong! Mi 10 is not the same as Mi Note 10. Both are completely different phones.
Mi Note 10 has codename “Tucana” and is also known as Mi CC9 Pro, the Chinese variant of the phone.
It boasts Snapdragon 730G (8 nm) chipset from Qualcomm. Tucana also comes with Penta cameras making it as the first Xiaomi phone to feature 5 cameras setup.
Orangefox is a modified version of TWRP. It comes with advanced features not available within the original TWRP.
Those features, since not getting approved by TeamWin Dev Team, are packed in a new recovery with a different name.
