Xiaomi 12 Ultra will stick to 50MP main camera, mold confirms design once again

Yordan, 05 January 2022

The Xiaomi 12 Ultra is still unannounced, and rumors and leaks keep floating online. The latest one comes from tipster Digital Chat Station, who revealed the company will stick to a 50MP sensor for the main camera, as well as a high resolution ultrawide and a telephoto shooter with some optical zoom.

In the meantime, an aluminum mold appeared online, based on the schematics accessories manufacturers receive from Xiaomi, confirming the camera design of a big circle on an even bigger rectangle, taking up more than 1/3 of the back of the phone.

The Mi 11 Ultra had 50MP main, 48MP ultrawide and 48MP 5x telephoto cameras and it appears its successor won't increase the resolution significantly. However that's not to say it can't bring new and improved sensors, resulting in even better image quality.

In our long-term review of that phone we once more established its imaging brilliance so it's no wonder that Xiaomi is choosing to further perfect what's already a great setup instead of stgarting from scratch.

Previously, rumors pointed to a Zeiss partnership, although there's no solid confirmation of that yet. What is far more certain is the 12 Ultra is going to run on Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and sport a big AMOLED screen with 1440p resolution. There’s still no word on eventual arrival, but a Q1 launch is in the cards, including an MWC 2022 appearance.

It looks like Huawei now!

If the picture and video quality get better quality from the brilliant Mi 11U even P50 Pro, I think it's ok. The big question here, where's the second display on the back? Is it gone?

Yuk... So ugly. Is Xiaomi management blind? Such a huge camera bump!
