At the end of last year, Xiaomi launched three flagship models, namely the Xiaomi Mi 12, Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro, and Xiaomi Mi 12X. But the very top-end model dubbed the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra was absent from this conference. Fortunately, after the launch event, we got tons of information saying that the manufacturer is going to release the top-notch model after the Chinese New Year. Also, we knew that Xiaomi will join hands with Leica to build a mobile phone imaging system. If nothing else, the phone will once again dominate the DXOMARK list. As the release time draws nearer, we are getting more and more news concerning not only the camera department but other features as well. Recently, some sources released hand-drawn drawings of the appearance of the machine.
According to the latest information released by the well-known Weibo blogger, the front of the new Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra will use the mainstream center-hole full screen. If nothing else, it will adopt a micro-curved screen. The latter is thought to bring outstanding visual impact and feel. On the back of the fuselage, the machine will carry a huge rear camera module. It will use a multi-layer structure. The bottom layer is a large-area square base, whereas the top is an “Oreo” shaped lens module. It is worth noting that the machine will have a triple-camera module, including a periscope telephoto lens, and will be jointly tuned with Leica.
Well, we have heard that Xiaomi won’t release it as a Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra but as a Xiaomi MIX 5 Pro. Regardless of the name, our protagonist will use OLED material. Under the hood, it will host a new generation of Snapdragon 8 processors. The Oreo camera design looks outstanding. Also, the entire camera area occupies nearly half of the back area, with 4 built-in lenses. By the way, the main camera is expected to be a 200-megapixel CMOS, which will use Samsung’s latest ISOCELL HP1 sensor. The latter comes with a size of 1/1.22 inches.
Likely, Xiaomi will use its single-cell 120W fast charging solution on this handset. If so, Xiaomi once again will prove that it can make premium smartphones and it does. There will also be up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage, a battery with a capacity of at least 4500mAh, etc.
The new Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra is expected to debut around March and has been in trial production.
