Xiaomi 12 Ultra, luxury finishes: not only ceramic, it could also come in leather

If for Xiaomi 12, 12X and 12 Pro (the latter we have just reviewed) the Chinese giant has chosen a sober and rather minimal design, Xiaomi 12 Ultra instead it will definitely catch the eye. A bit like for Mi 11 Ultra, the back will be dominated by a huge photographic module (which will lose the small display of the predecessor), only in this round instead of a large rectangle we will find an important circular element.

In short, Xiaomi for its spearhead has made more courageous choices. And if the personality comes from the rear camera, which, moreover, should be the result of the prestigious collaboration with Leica, the impression of having to do with a premium device will pass through the materials chosen for the smartphone body.


The younger brothers all arrive with a nice matte finish, while Xiaomi 12 Ultra according to the latest rumors coming from China should be available with three different versions: one with back cover in ceramic (black and white, with which we have already become familiar with in recent months through the renderings), one in glass and finally one in vegan leather (i.e. a material similar to leather in tactile and visual rendering, but obtained from plant sources).

Xiaomi 12 Ultra will not be premium only in materials, but also in hardware equipment. The smartphone, which could be presented as early as May, should in fact be one of the first to mount the next flagship SoC from Qualcomm, or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus made by TSMC with 4nm process. The display will be an OLED panel with QHD + resolution and refresh rate up to 120Hz, while the battery should have a generous capacity of 4,900 mAh as well as supporting lightning-fast charging a 120W.
