Xiaomi is constantly working on promising devices, and most of them go through the mandatory patenting stage. And the images accompanying the patent often become the primary source of information about the design of a particular model. Usually, by the external performance, one can judge which class the model from the patent belongs to. And in this case, Xiaomi has unambiguously portrayed the flagship device. This could very well be the Xiaomi 12 Ultra.
As you can see, the smartphone received a quad camera, and not an easy one: with a large main sensor at the top and a periscope module at the bottom. Now a bunch of such modules is used in Mi 11 Ultra, but this flagship has only three modules, and the picture shows four. According to rumors, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra and Xiaomi 12 Ultra Enhanced Edition will have so many sensors – that is why the image in the picture can be compared with the promising flagships of the Chinese company. According to preliminary data, the resolution of the sensors will be 50, 48, 48 and 48 megapixels.
The Xiaomi 12 Ultra will probably receive a conventional flush-mounted front camera, as shown in the picture, while the Enhanced Edition may include a sub-screen camera, like the Mix 4. Finally, the Xiaomi 12 smartphones have a curved screen on the sides, which is also reflected in the picture.
If the official premiere of Xiaomi 12 is scheduled for December, then Xiaomi 12 Pro, 12 Ultra and 12 Ultra Enhanced will be released, presumably at the end of February next year.
