Xiaomi 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced specifications leaked: Snapdragon 898, 50MP camera, and more

Xiaomi 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced could be upcoming premium offerings from the company.

Highlights
  • Xiaomi 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced phones are rumoured to be in the works
  • The smartphones will reportedly feature Snapdragon 898 chipset, 50MP quad cameras, up to 120x zoom, and next-gen in-display fingerprint sensor
  • The Xiaomi 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced are said to launch in Q2 2022

The Xiaomi 12 smartphone is expected to launch in December, right after the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset unveiling. Speculations are rife that the brand is also working on the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. However, a new post has emerged online that says the company might launch another model in the series, dubbed as the Xiaomi 12 Ultra Enhanced, which could be a superior model to the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. According to tech blog Xiaomiui, the code of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra and Xiaomi 12 Ultra Enhanced are built on the same ROM and source. Both phones have the codename ‘Thor’ and ‘Loki’, respectively. The Xiaomi 12 Pro reportedly has a codename, Zeus. 

The Xiaomi 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced are said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon SM8450, which could be the Snapdragon 898. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra is likely to pack a 50MP Samsung GN5 primary camera but there’s a little chance of the device featuring a 200MP snapper. The main sensor will be accompanied by three more 48MP cameras with 2x, 5x, and 10x zoom capabilities. The report says the phones are expected to bring 0.5x, 1x, 2x, 5x, 10x, and 120x zoom in photos. For videos, the phones will have a 15x zoom as well. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced may feature a next-generation in-display fingerprint sensor.

There are chances the Xiaomi 12 Ultra series might be exclusive to China, and the smartphones are expected to launch in Q2 2022 similar to the Mi 11 Ultra earlier this year. There are reports that Xiaomi might use Leica optics for its upcoming Xiaomi 12 Ultra. That’s pretty much everything we so far know about the alleged Xiaomi 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced edition but since the launch is still quite far, we should learn more details soon. Stick around.
