According to published reports, the Xiaomi 12 series handsets will probably hit the market in early 2022. The family consists of three phones, Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro and 12 Ultra, and now, according to one of the whistleblowers, Xiaomi has used a better sensor for the periscope camera of the 12 Ultra.
Specifically, Instead of the 48-megapixel 1.2-inch sensor found in the previous generation, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra uses a 1.5-megapixel 1.5-megapixel sensor for the periscope camera. The detector did not specify the exact sensor model, but Samsung's ISOCELL GN5, Sony IMX766 and OmniVision OV50A sensors are based on such specifications. Of course, since Xiaomi is very interested in Samsung sensors, we are probably dealing with ISOCELL GN5.
