Xiaomi 12 Ultra, important rumor: complete technical data sheet and China prices


Everyone seems to be waiting for Qualcomm to formalize the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. Motorola with Edge 30 Ultra, OnePlus with 10 Ultra and Xiaomi with 12 Ultra, projects all united by the next very high performance American chip and all united by waiting for it to be presented. If Qualcomm were to move shortly as they say, the three smartphones could be made official in the same period.

Among them, the one that seems closest to the moment of “therefore” is Xiaomi 12 Ultra: to suggest it is the breadth and wealth of details of the indiscretion of Shadow Leak, who used Twitter to convey what looks like a real technical preview on the top of the Chinese range. In short, the perimeter of the project seems more than delineated. Excluding one of the few certainties, namely the presence of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+, for Xiaomi 12 Ultra it does not seem to have been easy to offer something more than its younger brother, the 12 Pro.

The display has very similar characteristics, and the same can be said for the type of memories and the speed of charging. To take the informant’s advances for good, Xiaomi 12 Ultra will have some different cameras and logically better, with the use of the new sensor Sony IMX989 for the main wide (the Pro has an IMX707), it will have an optically stabilized ultra wide (and some suspicion that the informant may be wrong there is, especially due to the absence of OIS from the “tele” that between the sensors is the most sensitive to micro movements), and a telephoto lens with an optical zoom still unknown but with a total of 120x.

The front camera should remain 32 MP: one would think that the sensor used could be the same as the Pro, which is not very good news in light of the fact that during the review it was among the components that convinced us less. There drums Sara more capacious4,900 mAh instead of the Pro’s 4,600 mAh, and the IP68 certification against water and dust inexplicably absent on Xiaomi 12 Pro.
