While the Vivo X80 flagship is getting ready to try on the new Sony IMX866 sensor that will replace the popular IMX766, Xiaomi’s upcoming super flagship will allegedly get an even more impressive solution.
Digital Chat Station insider claims that the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will feature Sony’s new top-of-the-line IMX9 sensor, which will likely be called IMX989.
The resolution of the sensor will be the usual 50 megapixels for flagship sensors, and the optical format will be close to 1 inch. That is, it will be a very large modern sensor.
There are no other parameters yet, but the same IMX766 is characterized by an optical format of 1/1.56 inch, while the Samsung GN1 is already talking about 1/1.31 inch. Most likely, IMX989 will be no worse or even better than Samsung’s brainchild. As for the flagship Xiaomi, he is attributed 120-hertz screen AMOLED, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 + and 120-watt charging. The smartphone is expected in early summer.
Digital Chat Station insider is a very verified source. In particular, in his time, he correctly listed the parameters of many Xiaomi smartphones before their release.
