Xiaomi 12 Ultra: Reports suggest that Xiaomi may replace its flagship with the Mix 5 Pro

After debuting the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro last week, Xiaomi fans may have expected the company to release the Xiaomi 12 Ultra later this year. It appears that may not be the case after all, with current information indicating that Xiaomi may release the Mix 5 Pro as its range-topping flagship phone instead.

Last time out, Xiaomi released the Mi 11, then followed it up with the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra. The company recently launched the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro, and while fans may have been expecting the Xiaomi 12 Pro to make an appearance later this year, it appears that may not be the case. 

According to Xiaomiui, it looks like Xiaomi actually has no plans to release a Xiaomi 12 Ultra this year. Instead, the company will launch the Mix 5 Pro as its range-leading model for the year. 

Xiaomiui's rationale is solid as well—Xiaomi is yet to certify a device that should be the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. Xiaomi's model codenames follow a certain logic, with the Xiaomi 12 being codenamed "L3" and the Xiaomi 12 Pro going by "L2". Logic dictates that "L1" would ordinarily be the Xiaomi 12 Ultra but that codename looks to have been registered with a device that will be the Xiaomi Mix 5 Pro, with the regular Mix 5 being "L1A". There's also the fact that early renders of the supposed Xiaomi 12 Ultra and Xiaomi Mix 5 Pro look surprisingly similar.

Either way, we can expect the Mi Mix 5 Pro to be an extremely premium phone. Leakster Digital Chat Station recently teased L1. The phone is tipped to feature a flagship-grade 50 MP main camera along with a high-quality telephoto lens.

Buy the Mi 11i on Amazon.
