    Xiaomi's Mi 12S Ultra is all set to launch on July 4 with a 1-inch camera sensor, the largest ever in a smartphone. Xiaomi has developed the sensor with Sony and has also split the $15 million cost with the company. Apart from this, the smartphone company has also collaborated with Leica. The phone will launch on July 4 alongside Mi 12S and 12S Pro.

    Xiaomi is introducing a 1-inch camera sensor — the largest-ever in a  smartphone — in the Mi 12S Ultra. The phone will be launched on July 4 and will be live-streamed on the company's official website. Xiaomi co-developed the sensor with Sony.
    Many smartphone companies, including Sony, have tried to implement a big sensor but rarely succeeded. The closest is the Xperia Pro-I, which has a sensor of the same size but only uses part of it. The sensor is more or less the same as the one Sony uses in its $1,300 Cyber-shot RX100 VII.
    This sensor would mean bigger pixels, bigger optics and a tremendous improvement in the image quality, especially in low light. And Xiaomi did not stop with a huge sensor.
    The company has also collaborated with Leica for the hardware. While most collaborations seem more of a marketing gimmick and a way to attract buyers, Xiaomi has actually split the $15 million cost of developing the sensor with Sony.
    Will this collaboration mean a hike in the Xiaomi price or will they make other compromises to stick with their price range? Come July 4 and we will find out. The phone will be a part of the Mi 12S lineup, which also includes the Xiaomi 12S and the Xiaomi 12S Pro.
