In China, Xiaomi has introduced the 12S series of smartphones. The company has expanded its flagship smartphone lineup with the introduction of three brand new flagship models. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra stands out as the most luxurious option among the three new smartphones that were introduced today. On the rear of the device are camera sensors that have been tuned by Leica.
The Xiaomi 12S Ultra features an AMOLED 120Hz display, the brand-new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, 1″ Sony IMX989 sensor and much more. Xiaomi could bring its Ultra model to the Indian market by the end of 2022 (possibly!?). Let’s look at the price, specifications, camera details and other info about the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra Specifications and Features:
The new ultra-premium smartphone from Xiaomi features an AMOLED display that is 6.73 inches in size and has a resolution of 2K. Support for a refresh rate of 120 Hz is included in the 12-bit curved display. The refresh rate of the phone ranges from 1Hz to 120Hz, depending on the content that is displayed on the screen, thanks to LTPO technology.
A Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 system-on-chip is also built into the 12S Ultra. It comes with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage space on the inside. The battery that comes with the 12S Ultra has a capacity of 4860mAh and can be charged quickly at 67W, wirelessly at 50W, and in reverse at 10W. Xiaomi has combined its Surge P1 and G1 chipsets to improve how the battery is managed.
Comparing it to conventional VC heat dissipation systems, Xiaomi’s three-dimensional cooling pump is cleverly constructed with a number of channels that use a capillary network to actively pump cooling liquid condensed at the side opposite of warm areas, greatly improving efficiency and increasing the thermal conductivity of a single unit by 100%.
The 12S Ultra comes preinstalled with Android 12 operating system. MIUI 13 has been applied as a layer on top of it. In addition, the phone has a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display, dual speakers tuned by Harmon-Kardon, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, 5G, 4G VoLTE, and other similar features.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra Camera Specifications:
There is a Leica-tuned triple camera setup located on the rear of the device. A 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 1-inch sensor is built into the 12S Ultra. It comes with a 48-megapixel ultrawide camera as well as a 48-megapixel periscope camera that has a hybrid zoom of up to 120 times.
The Sony IMX989 1′′ sensor with a Quad-Bayer pixel array and individual pixel sizes of up to 1.6m is found in the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. According to Xiaomi, this reaches 3.2 m after pixel binning, which lowers noise, increases dynamic range, increases light captured, and produces better imagery overall in low-light situations.
The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is the first Android device to support recording and playing back of high dynamic range (HDR) videos using Dolby Vision. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra employs HyperOIS for ultra-stable performance, which provides continuous movement compensation while video is being recorded.
Additionally, the phone includes a front-facing camera with a resolution of 32 megapixels that is concealed within the hole-punch cut-out located in the top-center of the display.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra Price:
The new top-of-the-line smartphone on the market is the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, which was just released in China. In China, you can choose between three different types of storage for it. The base model comes with 8 GB of random-access memory (RAM) and 256 GB of storage space.
It can be purchased for 5999 Chinese Yuan (roughly Rs 70,700). The price for CNY 6499 includes 12 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of internal storage (roughly Rs 76,600). Last but not least, the storage option with 12GB and 512GB is priced at CNY 6999. (Roughly Rs 82,500). Both black and green are available colour options for the 12S Ultra.
Will Xiaomi 12S Ultra Launch in India?
To this day, Xiaomi has not provided any confirmation that the 12S Ultra will be released in India. Considering the price, import duty, and the 18% GST that the company has to worry about, we anticipate that it may come later; however, the likelihood of this happening is lower given our expectations.
