Leakster: the Xiaomi 12 will have a triple 50MP camera with a 5x periscope

30 August 2021
The Mi 11 Ultra is already close to that with a 50+48+48 MP camera and a 5x periscope. The next ultra will probably have a 200 MP camera, though.

    Nope. You have no idea what you are talking about. Small sensor camera modules are so cheap, unless they use similar size sensor of main cameras. Like 5 USD or cheaper cheap!

    That's why cheap phones can put multiple cameras on the back.

    In those case larger sensor auxillary cameras, results are really good.

      How about one 12 SE, compact, max 140x70x9mm, 160 gr? For example.

        I thought you guys already knew that megapixels by themselves don't mean anything and more is not necessarily better.

          'But, when you think the effect on the whole image, not by as much as you'd think (if at all). Here were talking about relatively large sensors typically used in interchangeble lens camera - pixel size can play more of a role at the extremes of small pixel design encountered in tiny smartphone sensors.'

          Rest my case.

            Unlike one of the BBK brands that bleeds money and BBK has to cover.

                    So that means it wouldn't occupy 108mp? And the 13 ultra is getting 200mp? Hmm. For ages mobiles were stuck on 12 and 16mp. Apple still stuck on 12mp for the past 6/7 generations. And here we are. 200mp after 3 years. 😱

Which will run games at 80fps, using double Chambers copper massive cooling along with ddr5 ram and S888+ at 3.5ghz at 12 watts to run Power hungry s888, with sapphire all round glass is not possible, I've course it is. Why you do jelly for if I or millions would buy this , people would pay £1600+ for these spec's. Just because you can't afford too.?

                      I m not nick but learn just a little iudiuot like your parent does

                      There no such thing such as imx 888
                      Xenon flash does not needed it only have close range and the night mode on flagship already great without flash
                      12gb still overkill for now
                      Gpu 1300 mhz? You dont know what your talking about it's 1.3ghz speed but you need to see complete picture what is the sox , transistor, design and so on
                      Games at 80 fps? 2020 flagship can run at 120hz for some games
                      Now you talk snapdragon 888+

                      You talk like a child but in the future nothing you said will happen it's again physics

                              The same obviously wouldn't apply to smartphone sensors whose noise levels are already high at base ISO and colour reproduction suffers a lot even at ISO 1600 compared to that of full frame sensors, so your argument is moot.
