For the Chinese market, Xiaomi has introduced the new Mi 10 Ultra smartphone, whose quad camera differs from the Mi 10 Pro in a few points. The main camera is equipped with a 48MP Quad-Bayer sensor from OmniVision (OV48C). So it has clearly less sensor pixels than the one in the Mi 10 Pro with its 108MP. As the sensor surface remains similarly large (1/1.32″), the size of the sensor pixels increases to 1.2µm or to 2.4µm after pixel binning. The optically stabilized main camera has a f/1.85 lens, the focal length is Kb-equivalent 25mm.
Furthermore a wide angle 20MP camera with 128° angle of view, a 48MP tele camera with OIS and 5x optical zoom à la periscope and digital 120x "AI" zoom as well as a 12MP camera module with 2x optical zoom are on board.
According to the manufacturer, the Mi 10 Ultra can be filmed in 8K at 24fps (other sources say 30fps), in 4K at 60fps. The smartphone supports video recording in HDR10.
The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 memory, also a 5G modem is included.
The 6.7" curved OLED display offers a refresh rate of 120 Hertz, 800nits brightness and 10bit colour depth. Furthermore a new 120W fast charging technology is implemented, which should be able to fully charge the battery in 23 minutes.
At DXOmark the camera scores extremely well in the test -- it lands on place 1 in the ranking, especially because of the photo quality. The video mode also seems to be good (tested in 4K), with slight reductions in dynamics, among other things.
It is not known when the smartphone will come to Germany and at what price.
