INDIA: Xiaomi displayed its most recent flagship series, the Xiaomi 12S at an event in China. This time around, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra is the primary flagship product. Additionally, it is a legitimate replacement for the older Mi 11 Ultra smartphone.
The camera module on the back is designed to resemble a DSLR camera’s lens. The design honours Xiaomi’s partnership with German camera maker Leica.
The 12S series will still only be sold in the Chinese market, according to the company. We also received confirmation of this from the Xiaomi PR department. The original report came from Android Central.
This is remarkable as Xiaomi also live-streamed the event on its foreign YouTube channel. We only presently know that it is unlikely that the Xiaomi 12S Ultra will be sold in India and other countries.
It’s still possible that the Xiaomi 12S Ultra will be offered in additional areas, possibly with a different brand or model number. All of it is simply speculation at the moment, so we must wait for confirmation.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra: New features, specs, and information
Although Xiaomi claims that the material is more durable than real leather, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra has a leather-like back. The product is being offered by the corporation in two colour options: Classic Black and Verdant Green.
The phone has a 6.73-inch AMOLED screen that supports HDR10+, HDR10, and Dolby Vision formats.
The resolution of this 2K monitor is 3200 x 1400, and the PPI is 522. Since this is an LTPO 2.0 (Low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) display, the maximum refresh rate is 120 Hz, and the refresh rate may vary automatically between 1Hz and 120Hz.
It is said to improve battery life. It boasts a maximum brightness of 1500 nits and a 360-degree ambient light sensor. This is a 10-bit colour display as well.
Like all other phones in the series, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra runs on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Additionally, it includes a brand-new 3D cooling system to guarantee superior temperatures and cooling when tackling more demanding jobs.
The phone includes a 4860 mAh battery with 67W wired, 50W wireless, and 10W reverse wireless turbo charging capabilities. For added protection, it has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on top.
The colour options for the Xiaomi 12S Ultra are Green and Black. The phone is water and dust resistant to IP68 standards. It includes Harman/Kardon-tuned audio, immersive dual speakers, an X-axis linear motor, an IR remote control, and Bluetooth 5.2.
On the camera front, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra gets a 50MP+ 48MP+48MP combination. The main camera is the 50MP Sony IMX 989 sensor which is one inch in size and comes with optical image stabilisation (OIS). This comes with an 8P aspherical lens, which includes an IR light filter, and anti-glare lens coating as well.
