There have been several rumors that Xiaomi and Leica will collaborate to create a new generation of imaging flagships. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra might be the first smartphone to have the Xiaomi – Leica camera. The two parties’ collaboration has now been completed. Cellgazette discovered signs of Leica in the MIUI album source code earlier today. The MIUI album source code included Leica filters. This suggests that Xiaomi and Leica are now working together on a strategic level. According to sources, the MIUI album will have Leica lenses. Users can freely take photographs with a “German taste” with these filters.
According to the latest reports and earlier rumors, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra with “Leica taste” would be released in Q2 of this year. The smartphone is now part of the Leica imaging algorithm. It also supports 8K film master Leica video filters, as well as Leica natural color, black and white, and other filters.
Furthermore, the Xiaomi imaging flagship sports three cameras. The three cameras are a super-large bottom primary camera, an ultra-wide-angle camera, and a periscope telephoto camera. These cameras, or at least one of them, will include Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
The previous generation imaging flagship Mi 11 Ultra formerly led the DXOMARK list, as we all know. With Xiaomi’s collaboration with Leica, imaging will enhance to a greater level. It is also possible that it will dominate the DxOMark rating.
