The latest news proves that Qualcomm will unveil the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus around May 20. Thus, the first smartphones with this chip will hit the market in about a month. There have been leaks that say the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra will be among the first models with this chip. but soon XiaomiUI find the phone in the code of the latest software version. The device is codenamed Thor. As the stable version of MIUI is not yet ready, there is every reason to think that the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra may officially debut before June or even July.
Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra should be available with a 6.73-inch display with a resolution of 3200 × 1440, which will use LTPO 2.0 AMOLED panel. In simple words, the display will adaptively adjust the refresh rate to 120Hz.
Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra camera
Although these two features make the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra a real flagship, they are not the biggest highlights of the phone. We mean that the rear camera is what customers should pay attention to when buying this smartphone. The triple camera module will include a 50-megapixel main camera, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens. The front camera will have a 48-megapixel resolution. We have heard from various advisors that the main camera will use Sony IMX 989 CMOS. The area of the latter’s sensor will be close to 1 “. This simply means that it will be one of the largest sensors on the market. We’ve already seen some models that come with 1-inch sensors. Among them we can mention Leica Phone 1 and Sony Xperia Pro-I. But these cameras are already several years old.
Xiaomi has experience in developing its own ISP chip. Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra is expected to come with its own developed Surge C2 ISP.
We also have several renderings based on current rumors and leaks. As we can see, the phone will support 120x magnification and will be available with a Leica setting.
Previously, Huawei was chosen as Leica’s number one partner in the field of smartphones. However, due to his passivity, Leica decided to change his partner. We assume that thanks to this collaboration, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra will top the DxO list. This is how we deal with the future best camera phone. In this regard, it should not be considered the most powerful smartphone in the Xiaomi range.
