The Xiaomi 12S Ultra made its debut in China at the beginning of last month as the first Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 gadget in the globe, and it also garnered praise for its 1-inch 50 MP camera. Sadly, that phone will never leave China, but Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has now said that the next time around, things will be different.
The newest flagship device from Xiaomi is the 12S Ultra, which is a true powerhouse. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra even managed to defeat the iPhone 13 Pro Max in a gaming test. It is outfitted with Qualcomm’s most cutting-edge chipset, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra specs
A Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC and a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC are featured in the Xiaomi 12S. The phone can charge at a rate of 67W quickly, 50W wirelessly, and 10W wirelessly in reverse. As was already mentioned, the 12S Ultra has a triple camera configuration on the rear.
The arrangement also features a 48MP ultrawide camera and a 48MP periscope camera in addition to the 1-inch 50MP main camera.
The front of the device has a 6.73-inch 2K AMOLED display. The 120Hz refresh rate is supported by the 12-bit curved LTPO display. It has dual speakers tuned by Harmon-Kardon and comes pre-installed with Android 12.
Excellent, isn’t it? The Xiaomi 12S Ultra, meanwhile, is not for sale. Only China carries it for sale. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra’s replacement, though, seems to be something you’ll be able to purchase when it’s released.
Every year, Xiaomi releases one or two Ultra models—typically a true flagship under the Xiaomi brand’s umbrella and a “flagship killer” from Redmi. The “Redmi K50 Ultra” was instead marketed as the Redmi K50 Extreme Edition this year, and the firm only released the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. That strongly suggests that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will be the company’s next “Ultra” model.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra, which is anticipated to be introduced at the end of this year, may be the upcoming Ultra model, according to rumors. Rumors suggest that the Qualcomm 8 Gen 2 chipset, which has not yet been officially unveiled, will be included in the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. This chipset may be officially unveiled at Qualcomm’s Tech Summit in November.
The Xiaomi 13 series will reportedly offer 100W wired and 50W wireless charging, as well as an LTPO AMOLED panel with QuadHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) quality. The display and charging capabilities for the Ultra model will likely be the same as those for the rest of the series.
Currently, we do not yet have additional rumored specifications such as RAM and battery capacity, nor do we know the cost for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, but we are confident that this will change once the Xiaomi 13 series is announced. So, if you’re a Xiaomi fan, just keep an eye on PhoneArena for additional information about Xiaomi’s future top-tier phone.
