We didn’t have time to follow the next batch of rumors about Xiaomi 12 Ultra, as a number of network sources were confirming the likely date of its presentation. It is expected that the release of the smartphone is scheduled for May 10, and in order to give a touch of reliability to this information, the supposedly official poster of the company was leaked to the network, anticipating the announcement of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra.
Given this poster, we can conclude that Xiaomi’s super-flagship will launch in a month and it will carry the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chipset on board. There is a possibility that this will be the first device with a new chipset. Recall that this will be an improved variation of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform. We know that TSMC chipmaker is producing it using its 4-nanometer process which is more mature and offers better energy efficiency in comparaison to similar technology from Samsung, the norms of which are used in the production of Snapdragon 8 Gen1.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra: we finally have a possible announcement date
The Xiaomi 12 Ultra will offer an AMOLED panel with LTPO 2.0 technology; and a 120Hz refresh rate, up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, 125W fast charging, and a quad rear camera. The key role in the camera will be for the latest Sony IMX800 sensor; with a resolution of 50 megapixels and Leica optics.
Interestingly, against the background of talk about the upcoming presentation of Xiaomi 12 Ultra; information appeared that the company canceled the release of Xiaomi Mix 5. True, we are talking about a global market, which the newest flagship with a sub-screen camera will not enter. But in China, the smartphone will appear, but only next year. Rumor has it that the company considered it a priority to announce the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2; which is a foldable smartphone.
A source who regularly monitors changes in MIUI and various Xiaomi internal software pointed out an interesting fact: Xiaomi 12 Ultra was spotted in the IMEI proprietary database – and with the same catalog number 2203121C, which was previously assigned to the Mix line. From this follows a logical conclusion that Xiaomi has canceled Mix 5, and Xiaomi 12 Ultra will launch instead. Although at the beginning of the year it was just the opposite. Then they said that there would be no Xiaomi 12 Ultra; but Mix 5 and Mix 5 Pro would launch instead.
