Meanwhile, competitors such as Xiaomi and Samsung have in turn diversified the proposal in the high range. Both manufacturers have created an Ultra version of their top of the range, as the futures demonstrate Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra e Xiaomi 12Ultra. Not to mention other top exponents, like Moto Edge 30 Ultra, ZTE Axon 30 Ultra e Redmi K30 Ultra. Once "Pro" was the way to make consumers understand that this was the flagship model. But apparently it is no longer enough, between Pro, Pro +, Ultra variants and so on.
