For the first time in Xiaomi’s history, a top-end mobile image sensor will might be found behind a variable aperture module
Following the 12S Ultra, Xiaomi is anticipated to release a 13 Ultra with potential generational advantages, including a return to global availability(YES!). However, it is also anticipated that the future model would ship with the same IMX989 primary camera as its predecessor.
However, it appears that this 1-inch sensor may have some adjustments in comparison to that of the flagship 12-series model. The top-end mobile 50MP CIS will, for the first time in Xiaomi’s history, be concealed behind a variable aperture module, according Digital Chat Station from Weibo.
The same leak also contains some hints that the 13 Ultra’s display may fail to improve on that of the 13 pro, sad isn’t it? Also, since it is now expected to be a “mini” version, the Ultra’s punch-hole may end up looking small, or smaller, than that of the current 13-series flagship. Because of this, the selfie camera of the 13 ultra may just have the same function and resolution.
In the end, these are all just leaks, take it with a grain of salt, or have some copium if you may.
