Xiaomi is marking its 10 years in the smartphone business with an ultra premium version of the Mi 10 series from earlier this year. Not counting the Lite model, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, as it is called, is the fourth Mi 10 device following Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro and Mi 10 Youth Edition.
The device is known as the Mi 10 Supreme Commemorative Edition in Chinese, btw. Not sure how that managed to translate to ‘Ultra’. Somehow, we felt like it is another name copying. Just saying…
Anywho, Mi 10 Ultra is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 with 5th-gen AIE, along with up to 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512 GB UFS 3.1 storage.
Display is a 6.67-inch 120 Hz FHD+ (2,340 x 1,080 pixels) AMOLED display rocking 10-bit, 1.07 billion colors.
The main snapper is a 4-camera setup on a rectangular camera bump that is so in vogue these days. The camera comprises of 48 MP main camera with OIS, 48 MP 120X (!) telephoto camera, 12 MP portrait camera and a 2 MP ultra wide-angle lens camera. Up to 8K videoing is possible, so is 4K and FHD slo-mo (up to 960 fps).
Meanwhile, the front is a 20 MP item with EIS that is capable HD slo-mo at 120 fps.
The device packs a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 120W super fast charging (wired) and 50W wireless fast charging, plus 10W reverse wireless charging. And yes, it does come with a 120W wired charger. Fast charging standards supported are QC5, QC4+ as well as PD3.0.
The Mi 10 Ultra is a high-spec handset that is a tad upmarket than the Pro model. As such, it is, naturally, a 5G handset with a premium built to boot. The device is offered in bright silver, ceramic black and a special transparent model.
Pre-order for the device is happening in China with prices starting at 5,200 RMB (about US$750). No words if it will be available outside of China.
