Xiaomi Weibo message: #Xiaomi 12SUltra concept machine #, the "hidden project" in Xiaomi Labs for the first time to install the Leica camera lens on the mobile phone for the first time to challenge the limit of 1-inch image quality. This is not a wild toy but a real fusion product with dual personality. A high-powered imaging flagship mobile phone is equipped with a lens, and the Weibo video of Xiaomi mobile phone, a professional imaging device with a sudden change in ability."

In February 2021, Patently Apple posted a report titled "Xiaomi Introduces yet another concept smartphone video, this time with a Quad-Curved Display, No Buttons & No Ports." One of their promotional videos is presented below promoting the wraparound display.


While Xiaomi reportedly made a few hundreds of these concept phones to prove that they were capable of making such a phone, it was never released to the general public. It was primarily a marketing ploy to give the public the appearance that Xiaomi was an innovative company. Will Xiaomi's latest concept phone with a Leica camera system prove to be the same thing? Only time will tell.
