Gizchina News of the week
The success of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra means that Xiaomi has established itself in the high-end market. The implication of this is that the company can now confidently release flagships that cost more than 5000 yuan ($775). Furthermore, the Mi 11 Ultra places Xiaomi’s imaging system at the forefront of Android phones. With this smartphone, Xiaomi is now a major player in the Android camera department, at least amongst Chinese manufacturers.
From the available report so far, the Xiaomi Mi 12 series will also come with huge improvements in the camera department. We can be sure that the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra will get the best of them all. The report from popular Weibo leakster, @DCS claims that a flagship will use a 1-inch ultra-outsole 192MP main camera. The native 1-inch ultra-outsole is currently the largest known in the industry. Although @DCS did not mention the name of any manufacturer, Chinese media, MyDrivers, has reasons to believe that he is referring to the Xiaomi Mi 12 series.
Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra may be the only device in the series to use the camera
Furthermore, the sensor will also support 16-pixel-in-one technology to achieve the equivalent of 12MP shooting effects. On the basis of the original 1-inch outsole, it has once again improved the amount of light and image capturing capabilities. This will enable the camera to have top shooting effects both during the day and night. However, this ultra-large bottom sensor may be too demanding for the internal space of the fuselage. Thus, it is most likely that we will only see this technology on the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra.
In addition to camera improvements, there were reports that the Xiaomi Mi 12 series will use an under-screen camera technology. It company has improved the latest generation of under-screen camera technology such that the screen shadow in the camera area is now much better.
It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi will also upgrade the charging capacity of the Mi 12 series. In addition to at least 120W wired fast charging, we may see a wireless charging capacity of up to 100W.
