Xiaomi 12s Ultra Overview 

Design & Display

The Xiaomi 12s Ultra is a premium flagship offering from the brand. Upfront we are getting a 6.73 inches 2K display with a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels. This is a 10Bit AMOLED panel with a 120Hz display, support for Dolby Vision, HDR10+, 1000 nits (HBM), 1500 nits (peak) brightness, and LTPO technology. Also, the curves give a more premium look to the device. The device is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.

The back of the device also deserves to be admired. Here we have a circular bump for the Camera, about which I will talk in a bit. Along with that, we get ceramic back with an Aluminum frame and the device is IP68 certified for dust and water resistance.


Xiaomi 12s Ultra is all going to be about its camera. The device houses the industry-first Sony IMX989 Sensor. This is a 1-inch Sensor with a resolution of 50MP. On top of that, it will have the Leica optimization too. So, Xiaomi might have a big leap when it comes to optics with its 12s Ultra. This primary sensor supports Dual Pixel PDAF, Laser AF, and OIS too.  Completing the quad-camera setup we have a 48MP f/4.1, periscopic telephoto lens supporting PDAF, OIS, and 5x optical zoom.

Performance & Software 

Xiaomi 12s Ultra features the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. This is the latest chip from Qualcomm based on the 4nm fabrication process. Here we get 1×3.19 GHz Cortex-X2 & 3×2.75 GHz Cortex-A710 & 4×1.80 GHz Cortex-A510 CPU cores along with Adreno 730 GPU. The upcoming Xiaomi 12s is also rumored to launch with the same processor.
