Xiaomi has launched a new version of their existing flagship series, Mi 10. The Chinese company has introduced Mi 10 Ultra.
The company unveiled the phone at a virtual event today to mark its 10th anniversary.
The imaging capabilities are the smartphone’s one of the highlights that will join Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Mi 10 Lite in the company’s portfolio. While the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro were unveiled back in February this year, the Mi 10 Lite debuted in March. Xiaomi also released the Mi 10 in India in May; however, the other two phones are yet to get an India release.
The first Ultra in Xiaomi’s lineup carries notable improvements over the Mi 10 Pro including a 120Hz refresh rate display, 50W wireless charging and the absurd 120W wired fast charging.
Around the back, Xiaomi is bringing a periscope module with a large 48MP sensor and 120x digital zoom next to the even larger 48MP primary shooter, shorter telephoto unit and a 13mm ultrawide camera, which is also the widest on a phone.
The Mi 10 Ultra is built around a curved 6.67-inch FHD+ OLED display with 10-bit color output.
The aforementioned 120Hz refresh rate is accompanied by 240Hz touch sampling for buttery smooth operation. The HDR 10+ panel sports a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and can reach 800nit peak brightness.
The top left corner houses the 20MP selfie shooter and there’s also an improved in-display fingerprint reader as well as stereo speakers.
Xiaomi is also bringing LiquidCool 2.0 vapor chamber alongside a six stacked graphite layer combo to ensure optimal thermal management. Cooling will also matter big time to the Mi 10 Ultra due to its blazing fast charging speeds.
The included 120W Mi Turbo Charge will be the fastest commercially available solution once the phone hits the shelves. Xiaomi claims it can fill up the 4,500 mAh battery in just 20 minutes flat.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra will be available in Obsidian Black, Mercury Silver all of which feature ceramic backs. The real gem however is the limited Transparent Edition.
