Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra launched with 120x zoom camera and 120 W fast recharge


On the occasion of 10th Anniversary of the brand, Lei Jun CEO of Xiaomi presented Mi 10 Ultra to the world. Although most of the details of this smartphone had already been leaked on the web, but official details are now on paper which shows that this device has some extraordinary features.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra is the new top model of the current flagship Mi 10 line, which debuted at the beginning of the year. The novelty stands out for its extremely unusual rear panel design – the massive vertical block of the main camera in the left corner takes up almost a quarter of the area and protrudes noticeably above the rear panel.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra also offers a number of very significant technical improvements over the former top model of the Mi 10 Pro line. The main difference is the main camera on four modules, among which a rectangular module with periscopic lens clearly stands out, providing 5x optical and 120x hybrid zoom.
