It’s Sony’s flagship 1-Inch IMX989 sensor, with 50.3-megapixels of decision and a 23mm equal focal size wide-angle lens. That is the most important sensor of any smartphone available on the market.

Leica’s contribution, in keeping with GSM Enviornment, is its 8P ingredient lens in addition to the software program. The cellphone itself is powered by Qualcomm’s newest SM8450 Snapdragon S8+ Gen 1 processor.

The entrance of the Xiaomi 12S Extremely sports activities a 6.73″ AMOLED show, with 1-120Hz AdaptiveSync Professional expertise. It’s IP68 mud and water-proof, a 4860mAh battery with as much as 67W wired or 50W wi-fi charging, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, twin 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and the entire different ordinary options you’d anticipate from such a flagship cellphone at the moment. However on the again is the place issues get attention-grabbing.
