Xiaomi is set to introduce its new Xiaomi 12 series on September 15, but the smartphones will not come with the top-end model, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. Indeed, it seems that this one is only planned for later this year, since its release is not expected until this summer.

According to leaker Ice Universe on Weibo, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra should be the first model equipped witha new generation of high-end Sony IMX8XX sensors. This new main sensor is expected to be a direct successor to the Sony IMX707 found on the Xiaomi 12 Pro.
