Xiaomi is set to launch another variant of the Mi 10 in the coming days. The Mi 10 Ultra and its rumored features have leaked on the internet over the past few days. And now, a new development suggests the phone is likely to pack an under-screen camera. This possibility was mentioned by Ross Young, lead analyst at DisplaySearch. Replying to one of the tweets about the Mi 10 Ultra recently, Young said, “It will likely be the first phone with an under panel camera.” Also Read - Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha won’t be selling, no plans for new MIX series device this year
Using the under-screen camera has been a challenge for phone makers. We’ve already seen Oppo, Samsung and Xiaomi demo the technology. But bringing it to the market for consumers is a different matter altogether. Young says because of the camera built into the display, chances are the Mi 10 Ultra will be sold in limited quantity.

The phone is likely to come in two variants; 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 256GB. It will feature a periscope lens, like the Vivo X50 Pro, and feature a display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Being a flagship phone, it will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, and support 100W fast charging and 55W wireless charging. The Mi 10 Ultra will have an antimicrobial coating on its bundled case. The coating will also extend to the screen protector that will ship with the Mi 10 Ultra.
