Xiaomi 12S Series is the first result of Xiaomi and Leica's imaging partnership.

The new Xiaomi 12S Series, "co-engineered with Leica," was formally presented by Xiaomi recently. The strategic partnership between Xiaomi and Leica in image technology has culminated in this remarkable product line. The complete series includes several Xiaomi and Leica co-developed imaging systems, incorporating Leica Summicron lenses, and supporting Leica imaging profiles. These systems are all designed to enable independent producers to express their creativity while maintaining the authentic look of Leica pictures.

Genuine Leica pictures, Leica image profiles

Together, Xiaomi and Leica have established a new benchmark for smartphone photography in this new era of mobile photography. The Xiaomi 12S Series, which was "co-engineered with Leica," offers unrivaled smartphone image quality and colors that closely resemble Leica's distinctive look and feel thanks to a combination of Leica's in-depth knowledge of optics, image processing, and image quality and Xiaomi's extensive experience in smartphone computing photography.

Xiaomi and Leica have worked together to build sophisticated optical lenses that will aid in pushing photography technology to new heights. In order to achieve ultra-high resolution, ultra-high light sensitivity reduced dispersion, and decreased flare, Xiaomi 12S Ultra, as the top model, uses Leica's top-notch optical design talents in its lens system. It also adheres to their strict optical quality testing criteria.

The primary camera of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra uses an 8P aspheric lens, and the camera module also includes anti-glare lens coating, lens edge ink coating, cyclic olefin copolymer material, and an infrared light filter with spin coating technology to address common photography issues like a flare, ghosting, and chromatic aberration. Together, these attributes provide a more uniformly sharper overall image.

The Xiaomi 12S Series, which was "co-engineered with Leica," not only features a superior optical design but also Leica imaging profiles that inherit Leica's century-old image aesthetic and faithfully replicate it using cutting-edge algorithms. This gives the user access to two photographic looks: the "Leica Authentic Look" and the "Leica Vibrant Look," both of which give the photographer more creative freedom.

  • The "Leica Authentic Look" aims for the authentic imagery for which Leica is renowned. Maintaining the contrast between light and shadow gives images a sense of three-dimensional depth while maintaining the absolute perfection of Leica's time-honored light and shadow aesthetics.
  • Leica and Xiaomi both contributed to the "Leica Vibrant Look." Photographers can attempt to capture the moment's emotion by fusing Xiaomi's expertise in smartphone photography with Leica's leading aesthetic, signifying Leica's research in the smartphone photography area.

The Xiaomi 12S Series, which was "co-engineered with Leica," gives smartphones the genuine "Leica Image Look."

Sony's IMX989 1 camera is used in the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. "Using a Quad-Bayer pixel array, the sensor has individual pixels with a maximum size of 1.6 mm. This reaches 3.2 m after pixel binning, which improves low-light images by enhancing light capture, extending dynamic range, and lowering noise. This establishes a new standard for smartphone cameras by matching the hardware requirements of conventional cameras.

The first Android device to enable Dolby Vision HDR video recording and playback is the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. Dolby Vision gives your videos more lifelike and improved image quality by enhancing them with bright colors, a better contrast ratio, and deeper details. HyperOIS is used by the Xiaomi 12S Ultra to provide ultra-stable performance and continuous movement compensation during video shooting. Each frame has a full effective range of stabilization thanks to HyperOIS, which makes use of the space between two frames to move the OIS motor back to its initial position.

The primary sensor for the Xiaomi 12S and Xiaomi 12S Pro is Sony's IMX707, which has big pixels (1/1.28" after pixel binning) and large sensor size (2 and 2.44mm). These sensors can quickly startup, capture, and capture in continuous mode with the assistance of Xiaomi AI Image Solution and Xiaomi ProFocus. These cameras have outstanding low-light photography capability and an industry-leading 30fps ultra-fast burst mode. Additionally, they include All-scene snapshots in their cameras, which makes it simpler to catch the critical time.

The Xiaomi 12S Series, which was "co-engineered with Leica," was also created to be more post-production-friendly for photographers. All of the series' 10-bit RAW formats are supported, and the files' color-correction metadata is incorporated in each one. Adobe Camera RAW software automatically optimizes photographs based on metadata when Adobe Lightroom is used to view photos taken on Xiaomi 12S Series, giving professional photographers an excellent place to start when editing.

Two Xiaomi Surge chips and one smartphone

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra, which was "co-engineered with Leica," is the company's first flagship model to come with two of its own proprietary Surge chips: the Surge P1 fast-charging chip and the Surge G1 battery management chip. These chipsets significantly enhance battery management and the user experience as a whole.

Support for 67W wired fast charging, 50W wireless fast charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging is provided by the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. The 4,860mAh single-cell silicon-oxygen anode battery and Xiaomi Surge P1 fast-charging processor, which also supports up to a 16A output current with 96.8% conversion efficiency, are the two main components of the Xiaomi Surge Battery Management System. Additionally, the Xiaomi Surge G1 battery management chipset offers a wide range of battery management algorithms, embedding self-developed battery management algorithms to safeguard the battery's operational safety and keep track of the device's discharge load in order to precisely predict its remaining battery life. Additionally, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra supports adaptive charging, which raises the number of charge cycles by 25% and stops the battery from overcharging.

While the Xiaomi 12S delivers 67W wired charging, 50W wireless charging, and a 4,500mAh battery, the Xiaomi 12S Pro has a 4,600mAh single-cell battery, a Xiaomi Surge P1 fast-charging chipset, 120W wired charging, and 50W wireless charging.

Flagship Display and Performance

The all-new Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform, manufactured on the TSMC 4nm process, powers the Xiaomi 12S Series, the  company's most recent flagship, and was "co-engineered with Leica." Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has a core area that is 21% smaller than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, with a 10% performance increase and a 30% energy efficiency increase for the CPU and GPU, respectively. This not only provides for decreased heat emission and power consumption under high-load computing scenarios but also dramatically lowers the standby power consumption of the Xiaomi 12S Series.

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra has a brand-new heat-dissipation system that works similarly to how a plant's leaves might absorb water in nature. Comparatively to conventional VC heat dissipation systems, this three-dimensional cooling pump is cleverly constructed with a series of channels that use a capillary network to actively pump cooling liquid condensed at the side opposite warm areas. This increases efficiency significantly and increases the thermal conductivity of a single unit by 100%.

The 6.73" display of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra and Xiaomi 12S Pro "With a peak brightness of 1500 nits, 2K resolution, P3 color gamut, and 1-120Hz AdaptiveSync Pro, AMOLED color displays with E5 luminescent material provide a professional level of detail, brightness, and color performance. At just 6.28", the Xiaomi 12S is a little bit more compact and supports the P3 color gamut display, HDR10+, and 120Hz AdaptiveSync.

Xiaomi Book Pro 16, Xiaomi Book Pro 14, Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro, Xiaomi Home WiFi, and Xiaomi 12 Pro Dimensity Edition were also revealed.
