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

Xiaomi 12 Ultra to be better,
thanks to Leica partnership.
As per Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, we’ll see more on the
in July this year. So, we can expect the phone’s launch to be in that month.
