Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, has officially announced that the brand’s next Ultra models will be launched worldwide. An arrival in France is therefore more than likely, even if the name of the first model in question remains to be determined. Does this mean that they will also be released in the United States?
Needless to say, the failure to launch the Xiaomi 12S Ultra in Europe surprised many. This smartphone seemed like a really positive development from the Chinese giant, with its one-inch sensor and partnership with Leica. If you were waiting for it, good news, the head of Xiaomi shared a very short tweet that should cheer you up.
The next version of Ultra will be available in our global markets! https://t.co/TgdDWq8724

The formalization of the new numbered ranges at Xiaomi traditionally takes place around December. Therefore, there is reason to believe that the next range, possibly the Xiaomi 13, will be affected by this statement. However, Xiaomi also launched Xiaomi 11Ts last September, so we are not immune to Xiaomi 12Ts in the meantime.
Enter the United States?
Beyond the great interest of Xiaomi’s premium smartphone, XDA points out that this ad probably hides another one. If we know the Chinese giant in France well since it has been in the top 3 in sales for some time, its arrival in the country of Uncle Sam has not yet occurred.
Notably, a blacklisting of the company in early 2021, finally resolved. We can also add that the US smartphone market leaves much less room for Android: around 50% of users use an iPhone, compared to just under a quarter in France. Furthermore, Samsung is also ultra dominant in Android devices.
