Xiaomi announced its newest smartphone concept which is quite interesting, namely the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. The phone features a unique rear camera setup that includes a removable or interchangeable Leica lens.

Based on the teaser video and poster image from the official Weibo account. Xiaomi shows off how its phone is designed as a high-end smartphone that focuses on photography capabilities.

As we know, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra is one of the phones with the most advanced camera thanks to its 1-inch sensor and Leica technology. But different from the standard version, this Xiaomi 12S Ultra concept edition has a lens mount.

That is, this smartphone does not only rely on the default 50 MP camera module. But you can also add an interchangeable camera lens from Leica which is supported by a 1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor.

Interestingly, Xiaomi coated the entire rear camera module with sapphire glass to make it more scratch and dust resistant. The body structure of the phone is also strengthened to be able to withstand the weight of the paired lens.

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept seems to offer two 1-inch sensors paired with the built-in camera sensor. Where the middle will be filled by the secondary 50 MP camera, while the 48 MP ultrawide camera that was previously in the middle is shifted to the side and replaces the 48 MP telephoto periscope camera.

Unfortunately Xiaomi says this special edition Xiaomi 12S Ultra will not be sold publicly. Because this smartphone is still in the development stage, although the idea of ​​adding a lens module to a smartphone is not a new idea.

Xiaomi juga membagikan hasil foto menggunakan smartphone konsep yang dipasangkan dengan lensa Leica tersebut, dan hasilnya cukup menakjubkan. Terlihat hasil fotonya mirip dengan kualitas foto menggunakan kamera mirrorless/DSLR.

Head of Product PR Xiaomi Agatha Tang juga membagikan beberapa foto Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept Edition. Foto-foto yang diunggah di Twitter itu menunjukkan Xiaomi 12S Ultra edisi konsep dengan lensa Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH, seperti dikutip dari Engadget, Sabtu (5/11/2022).

Xiaomi mengatakan ponsel konsep ini mengandalkan AI Image Solution untuk memproses hasil foto dan menawarkan opsi pengambilan foto dalam 10-bit RAW. Lensa Leica yang dipasang juga akan terintegrasi dengan aplikasi kamera, serta mendukung fitur seperti focus peaking, zebra lines, dan histogram.
