Android version and market relevance

In July 2022 was announced smartphone Xiaomi 12S Ultra. It is located in the series Xiaomi 12 among many others smartphones Xiaomi.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Xiaomi 12S Ultra works on Android 12, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2022. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Xiaomi 12S Ultra, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Xiaomi 12S Ultra works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. Xiaomi 12S Ultra has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.

Screen, body and battery

6.73-inch LTPO2 AMOLED touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Xiaomi 12S Ultra and has an original solution for placing a selfie camera in the form of a small round hole in the screen. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 9.1 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 4 860 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and normal battery.

The most interesting thing is that the screen in the Xiaomi 12S Ultra has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The higher the value, the better. And this is very important in mobile games, because the high refresh rate makes the graphics smoother in the game. All smartphones with a display refresh rate of 120 Hz are collected in our catalog.

The case of the smartphone is completely protected from water and dust. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone Xiaomi 12S Ultra possible on the main camera (50.3 MP Wide + 48 MP Periscope telephoto + 48 MP UltraWide + TOF 3D camera) and on the front camera (32 MP Wide). We tried to group all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the top segment. At the moment this is one of the best cameras on the market, so we advise you to buy this smartphone and enjoy the quality of the photos and videos taken on his camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Xiaomi 12S Ultra is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (4 nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 8 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 12 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 256/512 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Xiaomi 12S Ultra: buy or not to buy?

$950 is the price for Xiaomi 12S Ultra at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a cool selfie camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.

Xiaomi 12S Ultra will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
