Xiaomi is working on a new aspect to bring detachable lenses to smartphones. The Chinese smartphone company today showcased such a device i.e Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept Edition smartphone with an attachable Leica lens for enhanced photography. A few teaser videos and image poster is already out via the company’s official Weibo handle.
The renders and videos give a bit of a sneak peek into the future of smartphones and even cameras. The already present 1″ sensor on the rear side of the smartphone can be further complimented with a detachable Leica M series lens.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept Edition offers professional photography features as well as flagship-level smartphone performance. The smartphone ships with a dual-rear camera module but if we place the Leica lens, then the middle sensor also gets active which turns it into a triple-rear camera smartphone.
Details about the onboard cameras are not yet available, however, among them one is ultra-wide and the other is a standard primary camera. The external Leica lens seems to have replaced the telephoto lens on the smartphone. Other details about the smartphone are not yet available.
More information is expected in the coming few days via teasers, renders and official sources.
