On a photographic level, the new Xiaomi 12S arrive with the signature of Leica. After a period together with Huawei, the classic photography brand bets on Xiaomi to complement the new flagships. A collaboration where Xiaomi explains that “the result is very different” from what they had before.

The Xiaomi 12S incorporates a Sony IMX707 50 megapixel sensor, along with two additional 13-megapixel wide-angle sensors and a 5-megapixel telemacro. In the case of the Pro model, it bets again on that 50 megapixel sensor from Sony, but it is complemented by two other sensors of the same number of megapixels, for the wide angle and the telephoto lens.
