Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra expected specifications
With the Mi 10 Ultra, Xiaomi will be offering some key upgrades over the older model. One of the biggest ones is supposed to be the telephoto camera. The phone will feature a 120X zoom camera along with other three cameras. The phone is also tipped to come with up to 16GB RAM as well as 512GB onboard storage.
Other than these specifications, the Ultra is also speculated to bring the Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset.
