A range of Xiaomi smartphones, including the 12 Ultra (code name: L1), the 12S Pro (code name: L2S), the 12S Pro Dimensity Edition (code name: L2M), and the 12S (code name: L3S), have all obtained network access certificates from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra, the firm’s imaging flagship model, will be released soon. Domestic technology industry tipster with Weibo username “Digital Chat Station” indicated that this smartphone will be released in early July.
The account also claimed that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will not have Leica logo on the cover of the phone, but there will be a surprise with the image watermark. This may mean that there will be a Leica logo on the watermark of Xiaomi 12 Ultra photos.
Last month, Xiaomi announced that it had reached a global imaging strategic cooperation with Leica. The new mobile phone is expected to have a 50MP main camera, a 48MP super wide angle camera and a 48MP telephoto camera. Its camera module will be jointly built by Xiaomi and Leica, adding the latter’s imaging algorithm.
Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, revealed earlier that the cooperation between Leica and Xiaomi will include the whole chain of smartphone imaging, spanning from optics, imaging and processing to the user experience. Leica also sent a team of engineers to Beijing to work with Xiaomi engineers.
In terms of configuration, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra is expected to be equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ chip, based on TSMC 4nm process. It will have 12GB RAM and 512GB large storage. The phone will adopt a 6.7-inch 2K AMOLED LTPO display, supporting a high refresh rate of 120Hz, with a built-in 4800mAh battery. It supports 67W wired fast charging and 50W wireless super-fast charging.
