Starting from the Mi 10 series, Xiaomi has launched Ultra named flagships every year. Among them, we can mention the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Moreover, the latter has attracted a lot of attention once it was launched. It even managed to lead the DXOMARK list and was called the “Android Light”. Earlier today, a Xiaomi executive was interacting with Mi fans on Weibo and hinted at the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra smartphone. He said that an Ultra model is on the way and will hit the market this year.
Recently, the alleged Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra leaked in spy photos showing the aluminum alloy model. Through this group of photos, we can get a preliminary understanding of the design of the upcoming phone. But the appearance is not going to be the biggest highlight of this phone. According to various rumors, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra will come with a Leica-branded camera.
Thus, we are dealing with the first Xiaomi smartphone that will come with a Leica camera. So it’s logical to know that the rear camera of Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra will adopt a two-layer stacking design. The spotted photos we were talking about above are just another confirmation of this.
However, this shouldn’t be surprising to our readers. We mean back in November last year, there were many reports saying that a few Leica experts were working on the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra camera. The first Leica-branded camera should appear on the Mi 11 Ultra. But because of unknown reasons, the phone lacked the Leica blessing.
When it comes to the camera parameters, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra ought to sport a 200MP main camera (Samsung ISOCELL HP1). The size of this CMOS is 1/1.22 inches. Apart from this, there will also be a periscope ultra-telephoto lens, ultra-wide-angle lens, and other standard components.
When this phone is out, we guess it will take no effort from Xiaomi to land in the first spot at DxoMark again.
Other than that, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra will also boast a number of outstanding features. They will include a 2K AMOLED flexible screen with a 120Hz high refresh rate, Snapdragon 8 flagship processor, wired charging solution of Xiaomi (120W), wireless fast charging, etc. Thus, Xiaomi will do its best to make the phone’s performance match its name. It’s Ultra.
