Xiaomi 12 Ultra With Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Could Launch in July

The Xiaomi 12 Ultra is expected to be the company's first flagship device with Leica branding.


Xiaomi, back in December, unveiled the Xiaomi 12 series in the Chinese market. The Xiaomi 12 series, as of now, consists of three devices – the Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12X, and Xiaomi 12 Pro. The brand is expected to launch the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, Xiaomi 12 Lite, Xiaomi 12S, and Xiaomi 12S Pro in the future. Now, Xiaomi co-founder – Lei Jun, in a post on the Chinese micro-blogging site – Weibo, has revealed that the brand will introduce a new flagship, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 next month in China.

Though Jun didn’t specifically reveal the moniker of the device, it is expected to be the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, the successor of last year’s Xiaomi 11 Ultra. To those unaware, Xiaomi had introduced flagship devices with Ultra monikers back in 2020 starting with the Mi 10 Ultra. However, Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra didn’t make it to the global markets, but its successor did. Let us take a closer look at what we know about the Xiaomi 12 Ultra so far.

Xiaomi 12 Ultra: What We Know So Far!

The Xiaomi 12 Ultra might be the company’s first flagship device with Leica branding. To those unaware, the brand had announced its partnership with Leica last month. A couple of weeks ago, Mr. Jun, on Twitter, posted a picture of his old Leica camera and said I think it’s time for me to pick it up again hinting toward the arrival of the upcoming flagship.

The renders of the upcoming Xiaomi 12 Ultra were leaked earlier this month which revealed that the smartphone will come with a quad rear camera setup. Also, the renders revealed that the brand will not be continuing with the rear display that it had introduced last year with the Xiaomi 11 Ultra.

The Xiaomi 12 Ultra is said to come with a 50MP Sony IMX989 sensor which will serve as the primary shooter. It will be accompanied by a 48MP ultrawide camera, and two periscope camera sensors of different focal lengths. We can expect the device to offer a 120Hz AMOLED display, 5,000mAh battery, and 120W fast charging support.
