There are still many rumors about the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. The smartphone, whose camera is being developed in cooperation with camera manufacturer Leica, has not yet been officially presented. A well-known leaker in the smartphone cosmos has now published some specs for the flagship on Twitter. Accordingly, the 12 Ultra should load much more slowly than the current top models.
The leaks come from the leaker Yogesh Brar, who is usually very familiar with the smartphone scene. In his tweet he claims that the 12 Ultra comes with a 4,800 mAh battery and can be charged with 67 watts on the cable and 50 watts wirelessly.
This is particularly surprising because Xiaomi’s top models use the manufacturer’s so-called 120-watt HyperCharge technology. These include the Xiaomi 12 Pro or the even older Xiaomi 11T Pro. The full specs from the tweet can be found here:

Rumor mill disagrees
On the other hand there is also Chinese leakers, who claim that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will come with a 4,900 mAh battery and charging speeds of 120 watts. Interestingly, they also say that the 12 Ultra has a single-cell battery, which is unusual for 120-watt stores.
The technology usually divides the battery into two cells, since they can load alternately and thus share the resulting heat among themselves. In our opinion, a single battery cell would rather indicate that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra can only be charged with 67 watts.
We’ll probably know more soon because the 12 Ultra might, according to another Twitter-Leak to be presented in China next week, on June 21st. It is still unclear when the flagship smartphone will make it to Europey. In June, however, Android will receive a few updates with new functions:
Four new Android features are coming in June
Xaoimo 12 Ultra will probably come with the latest top chip
The processor or SoC (System on a Chip) in the 12 Ultra will likely be the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. It is even more powerful than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 built into the 12 Pro. You get 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 or 512 GB of data storage as main memory.
The camera system of the 12 Ultra is said to be the result of a collaboration with camera manufacturer Leica. On paper, however, it is very similar to that of the Mi 11 Ultra. The main sensor is probably a 50-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization, plus you get a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 48-megapixel periscope lens and a depth sensor with which you can create realistic bokeh effects.
But Xiaomi doesn’t just make smartphones that you can use to make long-distance calls. The company recently introduced a walkie-talkie with a range of 5,000 kilometers:
Xiaomi’s new walkie-talkie has a range of 5,000 kilometers – but it can do even more
How important is fast loading times for smartphones to you? Does it have to be fully charged in 20 minutes or is it ok if it takes an hour or more? Please let us know.
