New rumors are surfacing about the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, and allow us to learn more about what will be the photo offer of Xiaomi’s next premium smartphone.
A new rumor is surfacing regarding the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, expected around May-June. This is a snapshot of a future shell of the phone on which we can distinguish its possible photo characteristics.
A photo offer similar to that of the Mi 11 Ultra
The snap is from the Weibo Digital Chat Station account. On this one, we can see the famous hull which shows us a photo module which would no longer be rectangular like last year, but rounded this time. This would therefore confirm this change in design of the photo block.
The shell also has inscriptions on the photo block where you can read the words “120x, 12-120 mm, f/1.95-4.1”. The “12-120 mm” here refers to the focal distance that this smartphone would cover between an ultra wide-angle 12 mm and a 48 Mpx 120 mm telephoto lens. As for the mention “f/1.95-4.1”, this would designate the apertures of the camera lenses which would range from the f/1.95 aperture of the main sensor to the f/ 4.1 telephoto.
All this coincides with the rumors that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra would take over all the sensors present on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, although we could have expected to see some new arrivals to come and strengthen the photo equipment.
The same sensors, but coupled with a better ISP
The smartphone is also rumored to arrive equipped with a new SoC from Qualcomm, likely the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, but if the first 8 Gen 1 is still on the table. As a reminder, this chip would make it benefit from higher performance, but also significant improvements in the image processing part with a new ISP (Image Signal Processor) which would allow it to generate better shots while keeping the same photo sensors. than last year. A partnership with the Leica brand could also be on the agenda for the photo part.
The Xiaomi 12 Ultra should first be launched in China before being formalized here. It is likely that there will be a few weeks between the two launches. The phone would be available in three different versions: one in ceramic, one in glass and one with vegan leather on the back. Price level, no rumor has yet filtered on this subject. As a reminder, the Xiaomi 11 Ultra was trading at 1200 euros when it was released.
