Since the first details about the inevitable Xiaomi 12 began to leak, one of the first data that blew our minds was the rumor that with this family they would start a new era in their photographic section.
All because they would have reached an agreement with the people of Leica to become its new partners, opening a new stage in the trajectory of this brand after its exclusive agreement with Huawei.
Little time passed before we knew the first conceptual images that already integrated a rear module with the well-known photographic brand.
But now everything indicates that any previous conception was wrong. Because yes, the Xiaomi 12 would have a Leica camera. But nothing like what he had imagined before.
This would be the Xiaomi 12
From these data they would have created this piece where we would be shown what would be the closest representation to the real one about the design of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra.
And we must say that it looks very consistent with previous models of the brand, highlighting its huge rear photographic module:
As we can see, this design of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra completely contradicts the previous render where a less bulky rectangular rear camera was shown complemented by a secondary screen.
However, this leak looks more coherent and is supported even by a series of images of the filtered protective housings for the Xiaomi 12 Ultra.
The distribution of elements suggests that the device could have a photographic module with four lenses plus some support sensors. Possibly a 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) and even a color temperature one.
The Xiaomi 11 was presented to the public in January 2021. So everything makes us think that the Chinese manufacturer would repeat the same movement within a few weeks. There we can confirm all these rumors.
The disturbing thing is that in all of them Leica continues to appear as the new partner of this brand. So it is perhaps the element that generates the most expectation.
