On August 16, 2020, Xiaomi launched Mi 10 Ultra on the occasion of its 10th anniversary in making smartphones. The phone just isn’t an ordinary phone but a heated spec packed phone. Many geeksters even hailed the phone as the Smartphone Camera King whilst even compared to Samsung Galaxy S20 and Huawei P40 Pro. However, the phone is only available in China currently but it may find its way to other foreign countries as well. Xiaomi Mi 10 Price in Nepal could be Rs. 95,000 for the base model when it launches.
Whatever you can imagine, #Mi10Ultra has it.

The company had already announced Mi 10 Ultra on August 11 stating it will launch 5 days later, which happened. Since the introduction of Xiaomi in the smartphone market, the company has owned its value in the market. From entry-level budget to Mid-range and Premium flagship, the company has nailed it in every segment. Now, this is the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra review, let’s learn about it more.
Display, Design, And Build
Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra flaunts a 6.67-inch 120hz refresh rate HDR10+ OLED display with a resolution of 1080x2340p. This display is house to an in-display fingerprint scanner and a single punch-hole embed into the top left corner. To add more, this fantastic display has the protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The viewing, gaming, and content creation experience in this device are sure to give you some goosebumps.
From the front, Mi 10 Ultra resembles a bit like its younger sibling, Xiaomi Mi 10 5G. Moreover, the curved edges and the rounded corners are what look and feel really beautiful. The bottom bezel chin is as thin as it should be in a premium flagship phone. It has an aluminum frame and at the back, it has a glass layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for protection against dents and scratches and more. The phone features Splash protection and P2i coating to repel water but sadly there is no IP certified rating.
The dedicated power button and volume rockers are placed at the right edge, SIM tray at the left and 3.5mm headphone jack, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector, and speaker grille at the bottom. On the rear side is what catches the audience’s eyes. A rectangular module is placed at the top left where the Quad camera resides. It seems as if there are two separate modules inside the module. One is a silver module where the main sensor is and on the other, there are three camera sensors and a Dual-Led dual-tone flashlight. Just below it is the company logo.

The King of All Quad Camera Setup
Mi 10 Ultra features a Quad camera setup; 48MP main sensor, 48MP Periscope telephoto lens, 12MP telephoto lens, 20MP Ultra-wide sensor supported by a Dual-LED dual-tone flash. Now the question is how 48MP camera sensor became a king when there is already 108MP camera sensors on other phones. It’s because this 48MP sensor is a homemade custom tech by Xiaomi who also has developed a special algorithm that digitally up-scales every image to 100MP.
This setup has Optical Image Stabilization and 120x Digital Zoom which is higher than Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 100x Digital Zoom. The quality of the images and videos it captures is intense and immersive as shown by geeksters. Even the low light shot and Ultra-Wide shots were so detailed and balanced like no other phone. This setup is capable of recording videos in 8K at 24fps, 4K at 30/60fps, 1080p at 30/60/120/240/960fps. It has modes like AI 2.0, Night Mode 2.0, ShootSteady Video, and Vlog Mode.
This camera setup scored 130 in DXOMARK which is the highest score recorded to date. Its photo score of 142 is also a new high record in photos and as for video, the setup scored 106.
For the selfie shooter, the phone features a 20MP camera sensor. It can take HDR selfies, AI Portrait selfies, AI scene detection, and Portrait Video. This sensor is able to record videos in 1080p at 30fps, 720p at 120fps.
Power-Pack Performance And Storage
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset, 2.84GHz Octa-core processor, Adreno 650 GPU is inserted into the device to give you a bad-ass performance. 8GB, 12GB, or 16GB LPDDR5 RAM which you can choose from supports this setup for even more smoothness in performance. All this runs on the latest Android 10 out of the box skinned with MIUI 12. The phone broke the AnTuTu record reaching 660,000 points. It’s nuts.
Xiaomi has integrated cooling system into the phone to make the performance even greater while doing heavy tasks or heavy gaming. Liquid Cool 2.0 Vapor Chamber, 6-stack Graphite Layer, and Graphene all contribute to this feature. With all this feature and hardware backing you up, you can a lot of seamless heavy stuff. The GameTurbo 4.0 allows the user to customize GPU drive parameters such as rate, resolution, and frame for different games.
As for storage, you can choose different variants; 8GB/128GB, 8GB/256GB, 12GB/256GB, and 16GB/512GB. But the sad part is, the phone doesn’t offer you storage expanding option. However, the offered storage should be enough for everyone. Or else, you can use cloud storage.
Battery And Connectivity
The battery isn’t among one of the highlights in this phone but the charging is. Mi 10 Ultra comes with a 4500mAh battery. This battery supports 120W Fast Charging, 50W Fast Wireless Charging, and 10W Reverse Wireless Charging.
The company claims that the 120W Fast Charging Technology can juice the battery of Mi 10 Ultra from 0%-100% in 23 minutes and similarly 50W Fast Wireless Charging Technology in 40 minutes. It feels lunatic.
As for connectivity, you get Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, Infrared, GPS, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, 3.5mm headphone jack, Type-C 1.0 Reversible Connector, 5G Network, and Dual Stereo Speakers. It also has Hi-Res Audio speakers and AI noise reduction.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra Price in Nepal
The phone has already launched in China on August 16, 2020. However, the company has made no follow-ups on its availability in foreign countries such as in the U.S and India where it has a huge market. This all maybe because of the worldwide pandemic situation we all are facing currently. A phone with this much of calibre and spec should be launched globally for more recognition of the company.
In China, the price tag for the phone is 5,299 Yuan for 8GB/128GB variant, 5,599 for 8GB/256 variant, 5,999 Yuan for 12GB/256GB variant and 6,999 Yuan for 16GB/512GB variant. By reading this and taking into account, we expect Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra Price in Nepal to be around Rs. 95,000 for the base variant which is 8GB/128GB.

Mi 10 Ultra comes in three colour options; Obsidian Black, Mercury Silver, Transparent Edition. The Transparent Edition always receives more love from geeksters because it decorates with an outline of the device’s interior parts. If Mi 10 can come to Nepal, why not Mi 10 Ultra. We can expect the device to launch in Nepal if it ever has a global variant.
The phone was launched together with another Ultra phone: Redmi K30 Ultra

The Mi 10 Ultra is a phone packed with all the highest components and features but comes with a higher price tag as compared to Xiaomi’s own phone. But comparing the price and specification of the phone, the price tag seems fair. The charging options and speed, the hardware, the RAM, and the camera setup worths every single penny. Now the question remains, will you still buy this phone instead of Samsung phones and iPhones.
If you want the high-end specs, use the mobile camera for content creation and prefer the fast charging, then, of course, you should go for this Mi 10 Ultra phone.
