Xiaomi Mi 12, Mi 12 Ultra May Feature 200MP Camera, Alongside Macro and Ultrawide Lenses

Xiaomi, earlier this year, launched the Mi 11 Ultra in India. The company’s current flagship phone features a 1/1.12” 50MP sensor and also two 48MP camera sensors for telephoto and ultra-wide shots. It also launched the Mi 11 in China, which features a Snapdragon 888 SoC and a 108MP triple-camera setup. Xiaomi could unveil the standard Mi 11’s successor later this year. The company is also rumoured to launch the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, aka Mi 12 Ultra early next year. Ahead of the launch, some key details of the two Xiaomi flagship phones have leaked online.

Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra, Mi 12 camera specs tipped

Xiaomi is expected to unveil the Mi 12 series later this year. Ahead of the launch, some key details of the upcoming flagship phones have leaked. According to XiaomiUI, the upcoming Mi 12 series will debut with a 200MP front camera. There have been on and off rumours suggesting the inclusion of a 200MP camera sensor in future Xiaomi flagships. That being said, there is nothing concrete to support these rumours.

XiaomiUI further claims that the 12 Ultra model, codenamed Zeus, will feature a 50MP ultrawide lens and a 50MP periscope camera with 10x zoom. The vanilla 12, on the other hand, will have an ultrawide camera and a macro sensor. Details about the sensors for this one remain unknown.

Both devices will come with a top-tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC, aka Snapdragon 895 SoC under the hood. It was previously reported that the 12 series will feature an LPDDR5X RAM. The ‘X’ version of LPDDR5 was unveiled earlier this week. It pushes the maximum data rate from 6,400 Mbps to 8,533 Mbps. It is double what the LPDDR4X RAM does.

Currently, the Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 870 chips do not support LPDDR5X RAM. It is, therefore, expected that the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, dubbed Snapdragon 898, will come with LPDDR5X support. Details of the SD898 SoC were tipped recently. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 will feature a four cluster core layout, configured in a 1+3+2+2 structure. You can click here to know more about the leaked Snapdragon 898 SoC details.
