The rear design of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra is ahead of the global launch, compared to the Vivo Flagship

The Xiaomi 12 series was launched in China last December. The flagship line includes three smartphones – Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12X. However, Xiaomi 12 Ultra was absent from this series. Reports suggest that Xiaomi 12 Ultra is close to a global rollout after some of its key specs were reportedly leaked. Recently, its rear design details surfaced on Weibo, indicating that this flagship smartphone may feature a particularly large rear camera module. The tipster compared its design to an upcoming flagship offering from Vivo.

The alleged details come from known tipster Digital Chat Station via Weibo. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra is believed to feature a large rear camera module that spans almost the entire width of the handset. Its outer part should have a rectangular shape while the circular inner section placed in the center is angled to house all the camera sensors. The tipster mentions that this design layout could be very similar to the design of an upcoming flagship smartphone from Vivo which could have its circular camera island aligned to the left.

Earlier reports hinted at Xiaomi 12 Ultra to pack a quad rear camera setup with a 5x periscope telephoto lens. This lens could be the highest optical zoom available on a smartphone at launch. Moreover, the smartphone is supposed to be equipped with Leica cameras. The smartphone is expected to sport a curved display with a centrally placed punch-hole selfie camera. Moreover, it is expected to be powered by internal Xiaomi Surge chips similar to all other Xiaomi 12 series smartphones. These chips are designed to improve the overall image quality of the smartphone.

Xiaomi 12 Ultra is said to have a 6.6-inch 2K AMOLED display. It is believed to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The smartphone is rumored to be launched in February as a successor to the Xiaomi 11 Ultra.
