XIAOMI 12S ULTRA DESIGN
The 12s Ultra represents an upgrade over the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. It does away with the tiny second screen on the rear of the 11 Ultra and switches to a new, attention-grabbing circular camera surround, which elevates the line from gimmicks to gravitas. It is a large phone, the 12s Ultra. The Xiaomi 12s Ultra weighs 225g, which puts it in the same weight range as the iPhone 13 Pro (204g) and Pro Max (240g). The power button is beneath a volume rocker on the right side of its stylishly tapered matte metal frame. A speaker, SIM card slot, and USB-C port are located at the phone’s base.
The phone has a second-generation LTPO AMOLED display with a 2K resolution, which gives it a bold, colourful, and punchy appearance in terms of screen quality. The brightness increases to nearly 1,000 nits. A 32MP punch-hole selfie camera is located in the top centre of the display, while a fingerprint scanner is located in the bottom centre. In contrast to the 12s Ultra’s flat top and bottom, the front and back gently curve off towards the sides.
PERFORMANCE AND MEMORY
The new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 engine powers the Xiaomi 12s. Additionally, it comes with 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM. The 12s Ultra is gaming-ready and handles games like Genshin Impact and Tower of Fantasy exceptionally well, thanks to better heat management than the Mi 11 Ultra. The software version is Android 12.
The Xiaomi 12s Ultra has one front camera and three cameras on the back. Only the main 50MP Sony IMX989 sensor stands out among these cameras because of its superior size to the competitors. Large camera sensors typically result in better photos because they can collect light, which is the foundation of all photographs, more effectively. The primary camera of the 12s Ultra boasts an excellent sensor, optical image stabilization (OIS), an aperture of f/1.9, an eight-element lens, and phase detection autofocus (PDAF). The additional cameras on Xiaomi’s flagship camera have two 48MP 1/2-inch sensors; the telephoto camera has a 120mm focal length, and the ultra-wide angle camera has a 13mm focal length. This is equivalent to a telephoto zoom experience of about 5x.
The phone uses a Li-Po 4860 mAh, non-removable battery. In addition, there is a 67W which can take the phone to 100% in 41 min, as advertised. It also supports reverse wireless charging 10W
