Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra Tipped to Launch in Q2, to Be Amongst the First Phones to Feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC

Xiaomi's upcoming flagship phone may arrive by June 2022!


Xiaomi announced the 12 series globally comprising three smartphones, but the successor the last year’s flagship has not yet arrived. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra was introduced early last year, but there’s no word from the company yet, on when it plans to introduce the Mi 12 Ultra.

A new report reveals that the Mi 12 Ultra may arrive in the second quarter of this year. The phone will also reportedly be amongst the first batch of smartphones to be powered by the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC. Let’s take a closer look at the Mi 12 Ultra, specifications, features and everything we know so far.

Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra May Launch by June 2022

Popular Chinese tipster, Digital Chat Station on Weibo, revealed that the Mi 12 Ultra will be equipped with a stunning 2K curved display, manufactured by Samsung with a single punch hole cutout on the front, housing the selfie camera. It is very likely that it is an AMOLED panel with support for LTPO 2.0 and a high refresh rate.

The design might in fact be in continuation with the past leaks, revealing a large circular camera module on the rear and an edge-to-edge screen. The phone reportedly has a large camera module but not as the past renders reveal.

The Mi 12 Ultra is rumoured to include at least four rear camera sensors, one of which could be the much-requested Telephoto lens. The camera system on the rear might comprise a primary, a secondary ultra-wide, a super-telephoto and a 5X zoom lens. Xiaomi is expected to continue dominating the DXO benchmark charts.

There’s a possibility that Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra might be the first smartphone to have a Leica partnership, similar to what OnePlus has done with Hasselblad. A previous report suggests that the upcoming flagship smartphone will feature support for 120W fast charging and a 4,900mAh battery. It may arrive in three variants – glass, ceramic and vegan leather.
