A leaker has shared numerous specifications for the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, Xiaomi's long-awaited successor to the Mi 11 Ultra. Reportedly, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will have a 2K and 120 Hz display, plus up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra is believed to offer high megapixel cameras all round, too.

@Shadow_Leak has outlined numerous Xiaomi 12 Ultra specifications, presumed to be the company's next flagship smartphone. According to the leaker, Xiaomi has equipped the handset with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, a chipset rumoured to arrive this month. Unsurprisingly, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will have a large display, which @Shadow_Leak alleges will be based around the Samsung E5.

Purportedly, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra's display will measure 6.73-inches across while operating natively at 2K and 120 Hz. Additionally, the OLED panel will offer 10-bit colour depth and will rely on an LTPO 2.0 backplane, rather than the third-generation version that Vivo showcased with the X80 Pro@Shadow_Leak adds that the display should feature an under-panel optical fingerprint scanner too, a mainstay of modern flagship smartphones.

Moreover, the leaker asserts that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra has stereo speakers, an x-axis linear motor and an IR blaster. Elsewhere, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra is expected to offer a 4,900 mAh battery that supports 50 W wireless, and 120 W wired charging. Allegedly, the device will launch with the following camera hardware as well:

  • Front-facing: 32 MP
  • Primary: 50 MP (Sony IMX989/OIS)
  • Ultra-wide: 48 MP (OIS)
  • Telephoto: 48 MP (120x digital zoom)

While @Shadow_Leak has not shared a launch date, they have outlined how much the Xiaomi 12 Ultra could cost in China. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether Xiaomi will reveal the 12 Ultra outside China, which @Shadow_Leak tips to debut in black, marble and white colourways:

  • 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM/256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage - CNY 5,999 (~US$893)
  • 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM/256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage - CNY 6,499 (~US$967)
  • 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM/512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage - CNY 6,799 (~US$1,012)
  • 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM/512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage - CNY 7,299 (~US$1,086)
