2020 was a difficult year for some smartphone makers due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, after a lukewarm Q1 and a tough Q2, companies are starting to recover and continue their plans. Xiaomi is a good example. The Chinese giant is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2020 and is preparing to unveil two special editions of its best devices right now. The company is expected to unveil commemorative versions of the Mi 10 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro just next week (August 11). The first will receive a new variant called Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra.
Interestingly enough, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra was named “Pro Plus”. This is a new trending moniker in 2020. However, the CEO of the company Lein Jun revealed that in English the phones will bring the “Ultra” moniker and the “Extreme Commemorative Edition” to China, or maybe Supreme. According to recent leaks, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra will be available in different flavors with a ceramic back and one with a transparent back. The ceramic model comes in two different variants with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage or 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. When it comes to the Transparent version, it will go higher with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage or an impressive 16 GB of RAM with 512 GB of internal storage. This latest version is just crazy.
Snapdragon 865+ and up to 16 GB of RAM
Under the hood, the Mi 10 Ultra will be proud of Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865+. These recently revised chips increase clock speeds to 3.09GHz resulting in an overall improvement in performance. As for the GPU, the phone will debut with jaw-dropping technology that allows users to adjust the power of the GPU. The phone has a 120Hz AMOLED screen with FHD + resolution. Powered by a 4,500mAh battery with fast 100W or 120W wired charging and 55W wireless charging. Today we have some image leaks showing the cases and the wireless charger for the headset.
Lei Jun also took the opportunity to share a picture of his retail phone box for the anniversary. According to him, many units will be available, however, he advises fans to pre-order early. The handset will probably be more expensive than any other variant of the Mi 10 Pro. However, this will not be a big problem for some Xiaomi fans.
