Xiaomi is turning 10 this year and will celebrate with special editions of two of its best phones at the moment – the company is expected to announce commemorative editions of the Mi 10 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro on August 11.
Previously, rumors dubbed them “Pro Plus”, but CEO Lei Jun posted on Weibo that in English the phones will bear the “Ultra” name and “Extreme Commemorative Edition” in China (or maybe “Supreme”).
Leaked info suggests that there will be two versions of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra – one with a ceramic back and one with a transparent back. The ceramic model will come in 8/256 GB and 12/256 GB configurations, the transparent one will go higher with 12/256 GB and 16/512 GB options.
