In the latest development, Dutch publication LetsGoDigital has shared concept renders of the phone, revealing a brand-new camera system housed in a massive circular bump. Here's our roundup.
Why does it matter?
- Xiaomi has been tight-lipped about the 12 Ultra but these concept images, which are based on recent leaks, provide an early look at the handset.
- The Chinese tech giant has also reportedly collaborated with German camera manufacturer Leica and the 12 Ultra might benefit from this.
- It will be pitted against upcoming flagships like Samsung Galaxy S22 Note and Realme GT 2 Pro.
The phone might have a QHD+ AMOLED display
The Xiaomi 12 Ultra is rumored to sport an all-screen design with slim bezels and an under-display fingerprint sensor. On the rear, it will have a circular camera module. It will flaunt a 6.8-inch QHD+ (1440x2560 pixels) AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a 509ppi pixel density. It is also expected to offer an IP68-rated build quality.
It will come with a quad rear camera setup

A Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip will power the device
