Mi 10 Ultra and Redmi K30 Ultra may not be launched in India, or any other market outside of Mainland China, as an online report claims that the phones are exclusive to Xiaomi's home market. The flagship handset Mi 10 Ultra as well as the affordable Redmi K30 Ultra were on Tuesday launched in China at Xiaomi's virtual event marking its 10th anniversary. While Mi 10 Ultra offers an impressive 120W fast charging, the Redmi K30 Ultra comes with an AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate.

Additionally, the representative also ruled out the launch of these phones under the company's different sub-brands such as Poco. In India, the company is only selling the Mi 10 from the entire Mi 10 lineup.
