  • Our first Xiaomi camera comparison
  • Xiaomi invests a lot in its ultra-premium flagship cameras
  • All three rear cameras use the same periscope module from SEMCO
  • From the Mi 10 Ultra to the Mi 11 Ultra, Xiaomi dropped the telephoto module and used most of the savings to upgrade the ultra-wide module
  • The 12S Ultra uses OmniVision’s new RGBC CIS in the front camera
