In addition to the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, the premium device had precisely the photography power as the biggest highlight in front of the 1-inch sensor and Leica’s optimizations.

Excellent results but strong inconsistency

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra camera set has very advanced specifications, bringing optimizations implemented in partnership with Leica, after the end of the renowned camera manufacturer’s agreement with Huawei – possibly as a reflection of the US sanctions that the manufacturer faces.

The device ships three lenses, with a 50 MP Sony IMX989 main sensor, with dimensions equivalent to 1 inch, f/1.9 aperture, 8P 8-element lens and optical stabilization (OIS), 48 MP ultrawide with f/2.2 aperture. , 128° field of view, optical and electronic image stabilization (OIS and EIS), and a 48 MP telephoto with f/4.1 aperture, 5x optical zoom, 120x digital and OIS.

Already as flaws, the team points out notable instabilities in HDR and exposure in several scenes, delay of about 0.3 second in HDR and low light captures, focus and exposure instabilities with the telephoto lens, noise visible in high contrast scenes even with good lighting, low contrast and occasional lighting artifacts in backlit scenes, and no HDR processing in the preview.

Xiaomi 12S Ultra: amazing inconsistent camera

according to DXOMARK, with 138 points, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra has excellent camera quality but is very inconsistent. Taking the 5th place in the global ranking of the site, the device delivers incredible results when all components work in harmony, but the lack of stability in the quality of photos and videos makes it less reliable than rivals like the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Interestingly, experts claim that the device is even less reliable when compared to its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, which would deliver slightly superior results in multiple aspects — the graphics prepared by the DXOMARK show advantages of the previous generation in all aspects evaluated. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is exclusively sold in China, with prices starting at 5,999 yuan (~R$4,460).
