In a recent revelation by Xiaomi, one can now control cars from the comfort of their homes by just using their smartphone and a 5G connection!
Xiaomi unveiled their flagship Mi 10 earlier this year. On the occasion of their 10th Anniversary in the technology world, the brand released a premium version of the same, known as the Mi 10 Ultra, which would supposedly push technology as we learn to the next limit.
In the video released by Xiaomi, one can see how the Mi 10 Ultra can easily control a car from thousands of miles away using the zero-lag 5G connection, with only a second of delay.
In comparison, the current 4G network would have a delay of about 20 milliseconds. Xiaomi has been working on reducing this delay in connectivity.
This excellent sense of connectivity was achieved by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 5G, which means that alongside the high speeds of the internet, one would also expect the smartphone to be able to handle all sorts of multitasking and gaming smoothly.
The low-latency network created by 5G modems across the world is said to be able to produce a lag-free online gaming experience. Also, it hails tons of other online activities made much faster and lag-free, but this is the first time we see the impact in the physical world.
Innovations in the Mi 10 Ultra
Apart from this, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra is a smartphone with no compromise. Reports say that it will not be coming to the Global Market, but we can surely enjoy the innovations in this phone and hope for an equivalent counterpart from Xiaomi in the times to come.
The Mi 10 Ultra comes with a 120W wired fast charging, 50W wireless fast charging, and even 10W reversible wireless charging; with the 4500 mAh battery on board, the phone is a beast when it comes to battery performance.
In the optics department, the rear panel array of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra ranks first for the time being on the DXOMARK rankings with 130 points.
Mi 10 Ultra Pricing
The Mi 10 Ultra launched in China in four variants, with the base variant of 8GB+128GB starting at 5299 yuan (774 USD). The premium version costs around 6999 yuan (1023 USD) and comes with 16 GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
However, the remote car controlling technology is not fully developed right now, and even if it were, there are no road laws in place for a driver-less automobile to move around on a fully functional road. But even so, technology like this would surely excite the consumer and make way for even more innovation.
