Xiaomi 12 Ultra is trying to end the year with the fastest processor for not just 2021, but 2022, as well.
We know Samsung is gonna spearhead the year with its end of January launches. So the company should come on top in terms of press and spec highlights, right? Only thing is Xiaomi is trying to steal the spotlight even before 2022 begins.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra: Fastest Android Phone Around
One way they are going to do that is by using Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chips for all their Xiaomi 12 series phones. Those are the flagship chips all premium phones are gonna sport next year. So, by offering the best performance before everyone else does, Xiaomi caught our eye.
Besides impressing with their business savvy, the company is also going to get users’ attention with the phones’ processing abilities. The chips will come with faster memory, 8K HDR video capture, and better gaming mode attributes.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra: Circle Camera Design
In the case of Xiaomi 12 Ultra, buyers are also gonna appreciate the new design and camera. Recent renders showed that Xiaomi doesn’t intend to replicate last year’s Ultra design.
Instead, they are taking the Huawei/Honor route.
This means a huge circle on the back of the phone will be holding all cameras together. And they aren’t few; you’ll have a 50MP main one with an ISOCELL GN 5 sensor and a 48MP ultrawide to begin with. Then, towards the bottom, you’ll find a 48MP tele periscope with 10x zoom and another tiny ToF sensor or shorter tele in the 2-3x range.
Of course, next to this quad module, there will be an LED flash and a couple more sensors. If camera brands matter to you, then you’ll be happy to know this one is signed… Leica. The pros that have made some magic at Huawei are coming to Xiaomi.
And one more thing – the selfie camera is a 20MP lens that will hide under the display.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra: Display and Battery
As for the rest? Xiaomi shouldn’t disappoint. The display will be a beautiful 6.8 inches AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. You’ll likely get a 4,500-5,000mAh battery cell considering last year’s Ultra specs and 67W wired and wireless charging or faster.
Since Xiaomi 12 Ultra will accommodate an under display camera, you bet the fingerprint sensor will be similarly hidden.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra: Price
Xiaomi 12 Ultra should show up in China by the end of the year and a month later, internationally. Since we’re talking about an Ultra model, the phone is not going to be cheap. In fact, it could be more than $1000 but at least it’s going to have the tech to justify it.
