Xiaomi is all set to announce its next premium flagship with a successor to Xiaomi 11 Ultra aka the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. Unlike the last year when Xiaomi made a global launch of the new Xiaomi 11 Ultra that is not going to happen this year. Yes, the source has now confirmed that Xiaomi 12 Ultra will make its global debut with China first.
As per the source, Xiaomi will launch the next flagship Xiaomi 12 Ultra first in China and will later expand to global regions. Further, the tipster also revealed that Xiaomi 12 Ultra will be launching sometime in May this year. So probably the wait is a bit longer as we are still in March and have almost a month to go. Sadly, we are still not sure about the exact launch date at the moment.
Xiaomi will indeed ship the Xiaomi 12 Ultra with the latest flagship chipset in the market. Yes, the tipster revealed that Xiaomi 12 Ultra will be powered by unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC. The source has spotted the alleged Xiaomi 12 Ultra that revealed the device being powered by SM8475 SoC. So the device is indeed powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC.
Apart from this nothing much about the device is known. Qualcomm only launches the latest flagship chipset by H2 of 2022. We can confirm that Xiaomi 12 Ultra will be official by Q3 of 2022 not earlier than that.
