In the past, we have seen many brands including Huawei, Sony, Oppo, and OnePlus tying hands with different camera makers to compete against each other. 

Now, it appears that the popular Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi will hop on the bandwagon. 

After long-rumored collaboration news, the brand has finally uncovered its new camera partner, Leica. 

The German camera maker has had a history of partnerships with smartphone makers. 

For the unversed, Leica has previously partnered with Sharp and Panasonic, and its most recent collaboration was with Huawei. 

It appears that the camera brand will take its forte to the masses with the Xiaomi partnership. 

This partnership makes us believe that Leica will now have a wider presence in more regions, which was not possible earlier. 

How will that happen? It's just that Xiaomi's presence in the Asian and European regions has been fairly good and is increasing over the years. 

Also, owing to its popularity, we can expect its forthcoming Leica-branded smartphone to be accepted well in several regions. 

Speaking of the actual smartphone, we can expect the upcoming Xiaomi 12 Ultra to be having the Leica-branded lens. 

Rumors have it that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, or could also be called the Xiaomi 13, will launch with the same camera as the predecessor Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. 

However, we can expect the cameras of the upcoming Xiaomi phone to be co-tuned by Leica.

As for the specs, the tipster Digital Chat Station has revealed that it will feature a camera lens with a 12-120mm focal length, 120x zoom, and f/1.95-4.1 aperture. 

This corresponds to the predecessor, Mi 11 Ultra’s 48MP ultra-wide camera, which has a 12mm area. 

Although the specs of the camera are tipped to be familiar, some expect the cameras of Xiaomi 12 Ultra to be better, thanks to Leica partnership.

As per Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, we’ll see more on the Leica partnership in July this year. So, we can expect the phone’s launch to be in that month.
