The network is actively discussing the topic of the upcoming announcement of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. It is believed that it should be presented no earlier than the second half of February and the smartphone will be able to compete with the premium devices of competitors. But it may happen that Xiaomi 12 Ultra will not come out and this is not the first time we hear such an assumption.
According to Xiaomiui, instead of Xiaomi 12 Ultra, the company will present Xiaomi Mix 5 and Xiaomi Mix 5 Pro. Where does this conclusion come from? The resource based its reasoning on the model numbers of devices. To understand the situation, the publication recalled that Xiaomi 12 received the code name Zeus and the model number 220123C, and Xiaomi 12 Pro – Cupid and 2201122C.
Model number Xiaomi 12 – 22 01 12 3 C can be deciphered as follows:
Xiaomi 12:22 01 12 3 C
22=2022, 01=January, The important place: 12=L (A,B,C etc.) 3 (L3), C=China
Xiaomi 12 Pro:22 01 12 2 C
22=2022, 01=January, The important place: 12=L (A,B,C etc.) 2 (L2), C=China
Since the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro are currently being introduced in China, the model number is written with a C at the end. When it will be introduced to the global in the near future, G will be written at the end of the model number instead of C. Now let’s get back to our topic.

MIX 5:22 03 12 1A C
22=2022, 03=March, The important place: 12=L (A,B,C etc.) 1A (L1A), C=China
MIX 5 Pro:22 03 12 1 C

There are rumors that Xiaomi 12 Ultra will not come out
Xiaomi flagships have an acronym with specific numbers. Please note that the decoding of the indices mentions L3, L2, L1A, L1. In particular, the numbers Xiaomi 12 L3, Xiaomi 12 Pro L2, Mix 5 L1A, Mix 5 Pro L1. If the Xiaomi 12 Ultra were destined to come out, then the Xiaomi 12 Pro would not have received the L2 number. The numbering ending in L1 corresponds to the Xiaomi 12 device. The L2 numbering already belongs to the Xiaomi 12 Pro. Since the L1 number is also mentioned in the Mix 5 Pro, then, according to the source, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra was not licensed. An uncertified device cannot be marketed. The source concluded that the Mix 5 series will be flagship devices that Xiaomi will release exclusively for the Chinese market in March.
On the last day of last year, Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro and 12X smartphones went on sale; which, as we already reported, were sold for almost $ 300 million in 5 minutes. Now the exact data and comparison with the results of the Xiaomi Mi 11 series have appeared. So, sales of the Xiaomi 12 series in 5 minutes reached 1.8 billion yuan (or $ 283 million); and the previous record for Xiaomi smartphones belonged to the Xiaomi Mi 11 series; which for 5 minutes were sold for 1.5 billion yuan ($ 236 million).
