The fact that Huawei and Leica had a long-standing partnership with each other for a long time was already ingrained in the public consciousness. Still, after the US government’s bans, the German company began to cooperate with others. Sharp has created the Aquos R6 and Leitz Phone 1 and, according to the latest information, can start working together with a new Chinese business partner. It’s about Xiaomi. German technicians can fine-tune the optics of the manufacturer’s next flagship mobile.
The truth is that the rumor is not entirely new. As early as May, it was heard that Xiaomi could replace Huawei as a potential phone business partner. Then half a year passed, and Digital Chat Station reheated the news when it announced that Xiaomi and Leica had already partnered behind the scenes. In addition to the info, he also published a photo of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, with the Leica logo flourishing on the back screen. This probably suggests that the successor, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra Leica, will be equipped with optics.
Digital Chat Station is one of the most trusted leaks in Asia, but we can only be sure when an official announcement confirms this news. Unless the partnership is announced separately, this could happen no earlier than early next year, when the Xiaomi 12 Pro and Ultra models will be unveiled. The latter has already been heard of. For example, in connection with the cameras, there are three sensors on the back of the high-end smartphone, each of which will be 50 megapixels. One can have a lens with 5x optical zoom.
The Xiaomi 12 Ultra also features an AMOLED screen, up to 12GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, a battery with a minimum capacity of 4,500mAh, and support for a 120-watt fast charge for those who sit close to the fire and know more than we do.
