ts Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept Leica M Mount

Xiaomi demonstrates smartphone with interchangeable camera lenses

Remarkable ·

As phones get better cameras and stay thin, we are running into the limits of what is possible. So does Xiaomi. And that's why they are experimenting with an interchangeable lens, as seen on this custom-designed Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

The already official Xiaomi 12S Ultra already featured an impressively large 1-inch camera sensor. In the video below, Xiaomi has added a second 1-inch sensor. Around the camera module, we see a Leica M-compatible lens mount.

The 1-inch large sensor is covered by sapphire glass, unlike system cameras, where it sits unprotected. Whether this Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept Phone will hit the market remains to be seen. Xiaomi made no statements about that. As interesting as this solution may seem, it doesn't look that practical. After all, you can't just tuck the phone, including the lens, in your pocket undetected.

Is this the next step for camera phones?

Still, camera phones are getting better and better. Especially the sensor, partly because it keeps getting bigger. That is not true for lenses, which are also essential in image quality. Lenses must not become too thick; there are limits. This solution from Xiaomi certainly offers a way forward, but only time will tell whether it is the right path.

Rumors ·

Any time now and the first result of the Xiaomi-Leica collaboration is there; the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. High-resolution renders of this flagship with a striking camera module have now appeared.

The front of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra looks like any other phone. The back is a completely different story. The Leica camera takes up almost one-third of the back. We expect a 50MP wide-angle, 48MP ultra-wide-angle, and 48MP periscope camera.

Other specifications of the 12 Ultra may include a curved 6.6-inch color screen, dual speakers and a 20MP selfie camera. Given its high-end nature, the 9.5mm thick device is also likely to get the latest Qualcomm processor; the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1.

Xiaomi and Leica

Xiaomi announced a collaboration with German Leica in May 2022. Both are jointly developing a phone with a release around July of 2022. Previously, Leica worked exclusively with Chinese Huawei. However, the latter's phone business is in dire straits internationally due to the US trade ban.
