Xiaomi is celebrating 10 years of making smartphones by releasing a new and improved version of its Mi 10 smartphone from earlier in the year. To make the occasion memorable, Xiaomi launched a couple of new smartphones. One of them is the new Mi 10 Ultra. Let’s go through the specs features, expected price, and availability of Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra in Nepal.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra Overview
From the front, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra looks like the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. The phone comes in black, white, and a kind of “see-through gray” colors – the latter is reminiscent of the Mi 8 Pro, and it lets you see the internals. Mi 10 Ultra still comes with notable upgrades to the Mi 10 Pro.
Display and Design
Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra comes with a 6.67-inch FHD AMOLED Display with a peak brightness level of 1120 nits and supports a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The display also supports the native 10-bit color depth. With a 1080 x 2400 resolution, HDR10+, 10-bit color, and a 120Hz refresh rate it sounds like a MI 10’s Display with a faster refresh rate. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The device is available in three colors – Obsidian Black (Ceramic back), Transparent Edition (transparent back), and Bright Silver (Glass back).
According to DXOMARK, the camera scores 130 in their testing and the photo score of 142.
One of the biggest draws of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra looks to be its 120x digital zoom capability that is more than the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Sony IMX586 sensor stands out among the rest of the cameras. This sensor uses 1.6micron four-in-one Super Pixels, that can capture details without overexposure even in low light.
The main camera is only 48MP, not 108MP as in the other Mi 10 phones with a 1/1.32-inch custom-made sensor. It also supports OIS and can record 8K videos. Xiaomi has also included Dual Native ISO Fusion technology, chip-level HDR, and HDR10 capture. The device has a 20MP ultra-wide sensor and a 12MP portrait lens. At the front, you’ll find a 20MP selfie camera inside a punch-hole cutout on the top-left corner.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra Features and Specifications:
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra is set to run MIUI 12, a fork of Android 10. The chipset on the phone is the Snapdragon 865, which is not quite the best available to Android phones as of the device releases, as for some reason Xiaomi hasn’t opted for that chipset’s Plus version. It has a 4,500mAh battery, and it is the first phone released with a whopping 120W fast charge rating, using technology Xiaomi announced earlier in the year, and which the company says should power the battery up from zero to 100% in just 23 minutes. And There’s also 50W wireless charging, which again is faster than we’ve seen in any other device, and this will supposedly fully power up the phone in 40 minutes.
