Xiaomi 12 Ultra

The Xiaomi 12 Ultra has been doing the rounds on the rumour mill for some time. Leaked renders of the smartphone revealed a big circular rear camera module. The island houses four sensors including a primary unit, an ultra-wide-angle shooter and two periscope lenses. Reports also suggest that Xiaomi has partnered with camera-maker Leica for the development of the camera system on the upcoming flagship. 

As per Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra is expected to come with an OLED display with QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The smartphone will reportedly be backed by a 4,900mAh battery unit with support for 120W fast charging. Rumours also indicate that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra may be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ processor.

Xiaomi unveiled the Xiaomi 12 series globally nearly three months after its China debut. Hence, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra might debut internationally later than expected. However, we can expect the upcoming flagship to go official in China in the coming months.

We expect more information on the Xiaomi 12 Ultra to crop up in the coming weeks.
