After weeks of speculation, Xiaomi has unveiled the highly anticipated camera-centric flagship phone Xiaomi 12S Ultra in Beijing.

As mentioned in the title, Xiaomi has collaborated with Leica Camera AG, a world famous German imaging company to bring the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

The new phone is the first in the world to boast of a huge 1 inch camera lens. It comes with an 8P aspherical lens, which promises to solve common photography issues such as flare, ghosting, and chromatic aberration.

Together, these features promise to deliver a clearer and more consistent overall picture across the lens.
