Xiaomi 12 Ultra is expected to launch in the coming months. A new report states that the flagship Android smartphone will debut in May. Xiaomi will first launch the device in China, followed by other markets.

Citing tipster Mukul Sharma, the report did not reveal the exact launch date. Details about the 12 Ultra have been doing rounds on the web. Some reports claim that the secondary display next to the camera module will be gone this year. Xiaomi will instead offer a huge camera module that will house four camera sensors, an LED flash module and the Leica branding. The camera setup is likely to include the main camera, an ultrawide camera and two periscope camera sensors.

Tipster Digital Chat Station had previously revealed that the phone will sport a QHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It will pack a 4900 mAh battery and come with 120W fast charging support. The 12 Ultra is also said to come with the next-gen Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC, which is yet to get a launch date. The upcoming Snapdragon chipset will come with some minor improvements over the existing Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

Other details of the device remain unknown. We can expect the 12 Ultra to come with Android 12-based MIUI 13 out of the box. It will have multiple storage options with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage at least. More details should surface online in the coming days.
