Finally, after various rumors, Xiaomi and Leica officially confirmed their cooperation. It was announced a few hours ago that the two companies have started a strategic partnership and the first flagship based on the Leica camera is scheduled to hit the market in July 2022 (about 2 months from now). According to reports, the phone in question looks like the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, but we still can not say for sure.
As you probably know, this is not the first Leica presence in the mobile market. Leica's most well-known and certainly most successful collaboration with Huawei has been. Over the years, Leica has also partnered with Sharp and Panasonic. But since Huawei has faced so many restrictions due to extensive US sanctions, it was entirely to be expected to drop it. Both are eager to take this field to the next level. Xiaomi CEO also said that the company has always sought to discover the best possible capabilities in the field of mobile photography. He went on to say that Xiaomi and Leica agree on each other's goals and ideas, and that this collaboration includes lens design and aesthetic orientations.
The CEO of Leica also said that this work will lead to excellent image quality, classic Leica aesthetics and unlimited creativity. As usual, we can not talk about the outcome of this collaboration at this time, and after the release of the phone in question, which is probably the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, we have to see what the camera has to say to competitors.
Overall Chinese companies in the field of cameras are very interested in cooperating with other companies, but many of these collaborations are in the name and only a limited number of cameras widely benefit from such collaborations. Given that Leica has already worked extensively with Huawei, we need to see if the same level of cooperation is repeated for Xiaomi.
Xiaomi 12 Ultra is one of the most anticipated flagships of the year, with many rumors Its case has been published. In many news, the camera specifications of this phone are mentioned and it is quite clear that it has a lot to say in this regard. Among the various specifications, we should mention the use of Sony's 50-megapixel sensor for the main camera, and next to it is supposed to be a periscope camera.
