Xiaomi releases kernel sources for the Mi 10 Ultra and Redmi 7/Y3 Android 10 builds
Of late, Xiaomi has been doing a great job of releasing kernel sources for newly launched devices. Earlier this year, the company released the kernel sources for its flagship Mi 10 series on the day the devices were unveiled. Similarly, kernel sources for the Redmi K30 Pro were released just a few days after the device was announced. In keeping with the trend, Xiaomi has now released kernel sources for the recently launched Mi 10 Ultra.
Xiaomi’s 10th-anniversary flagship Mi 10 Ultra is the most powerful smartphone from the company yet, featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chip, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage. The device packs in a 6.67-inch 120Hz OLED display, with a 240Hz touch response rate, 1120 nits of peak brightness, HDR10+ certification, and a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera.
In the camera department, the Mi 10 Ultra features a 48MP primary sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide sensor, a 48MP 120x digital zoom telephoto camera, and a 12MP depth sensor with 2x optical zoom. Over on the front, the device includes a single 20MP selfie shooter. The Mi 10 Ultra includes a 4,500mAh battery with support for 120W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging.
The device runs MIUI 12 based on Android 10 and, thanks to the kernel source code release, developers will now be able to build TWRP or Android 10-based custom ROMs for the device. If you’re a developer, you can access the kernel sources for the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra from the GitHub link below. It’s worth noting that Xiaomi has combined the kernel source code for the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro with the Mi 10 Ultra, and it can be accessed via the same link.
Additionally, Xiaomi has released kernel sources for the Redmi Y3 and the Redmi 7. The kernel source code for both the devices has also been combined and you can download it from the GitHub link below.
