A report suggests that the Redmi K30 Ultra and Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra will be exclusive to China. A Xiaomi representative has confirmed that the company doesn't plan on selling either handset internationally, even as a Poco device.
A Xiaomi executive has hinted that there could be a future wider release.

Update August 13: A senior Xiaomi Product Marketing Manager has stated that Xiaomi has no plans to release both phones globally now. However, they could be released at a later point in time.

Original story:

It is quite common for OEMs like Xiaomi to unveil products in their home country of China. It is only a matter of time before they hit international shores, sometimes under different names. However, that won't be the case with Xiaomi's Mi 10 Ultra and Redmi K30 Ultra.

A Xiaomi representative told GSMArena that the company plan on keeping these two releases exclusive to China. Both the Mi 10 Ultra and Redmi K30 Ultra are significant upgrades over the Mi 10 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro, respectively. They're remarkably cheaper too. Xiaomi's vast repertoire of smartphones often undercut each other, and it looks like the company wants none of that.

Some pundits speculated that the Redmi K30 Ultra would hit international shores as a Poco device. Unfortunately, that isn't the case, as the representative ruled out any possibilities of it happening. One can still get their hands on the Redmi K30 Ultra and Mi 10 Ultra from Chinese e-commerce websites such as Banggood and Aliexpress. It's best to exercise caution when doing so, as they might not work with your local network provider.
