As we mentioned yesterday, the surprise would come from the hand of the Ultra model that will be part of this new range. While a presentation of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra has been planned, this model may never see the light of day. In fact, the manufacturer would prefer this “S” series. The announcement of a Xiaomi 12S Ultra should offer better readability in the range and, above all, mark a break with the Xiaomi 12 series, developed without Leica. The rapprochement with the German manufacturer is expected to be driven by the brand.
