Xiaomi introduced the 12 series with three phones, but fans are still holding their breath for the real flagship – the Xiaomi 12 Ultra.
A new report from China emerged to reveal some of the design traits of the upcoming Xiaomi 12 Ultra. We already have a good idea of what the phone would look like, so the latest rumor is here to fill in the blanks when it comes to materials and colors. At least to some extent.
While the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra from last year featured only one ceramic version, the company wants to give you a choice this time around. Supposedly, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will come in three variants – glass, ceramic and vegan leather.
The first option will be available in multiple color options, the ceramic iteration will only be in black and white, whereas the vegan leather configuration’s colors are still unknown.
It’s probably needless to say that the ceramic option will be a tad more expensive than the glass one since it’s harder to mold, but it’s more durable in return.
Leak reveals Xiaomi 12 Ultra will bring new Sony sensor; confirms rear design
Several leaks suggested four cameras on a circular setup for that one and the latest info from Digital Chat Station corroborates this.
The leakster posted two images of the phone from the back, in Black and White colors, revealing the design once again. They also said the phone would introduce a new IMX8xx camera sensor from Sony.
The numbers of the Exmor IMX sensors do not mean much sadly. They are consecutive, meaning the IMX800 doesn’t really mean much on its own.
According to previous rumors, we might get the same 50MP main + 48MP 5x telephoto + 48MP ultrawide-angle combination, but the difference will be the sensor behind the main lens. Xiaomi is yet to say anything about a global launch of the 12 series, so the waiting will continue for a while longer at least.
