The Chinese manufacturer has just shared a new teaser video and image poster on its official Weibo account. Looking at these teasers, we can see that the upcoming handset is a high-end model with a clear emphasis on camera photography.

The teasers on the Chinese microblogging website state that the new smartphone will feature a 1-inch primary camera sensor on the back. However, this sensor will be further complimented by a dedicated Leica M series lens, which is detachable from the large rear camera module.

As per official notes, Xiaomi is the first to install a full Leica camera lens on a smartphone to enhance the photography performance of the new 12S Ultra Concept edition. The company claims that the new lens will help the device offer both a flagship level smartphone experience as well as a professional photography tool. While finer details of the device is still unclear, the brand’s CEO Lei Jun shared some details regarding the cameras.

The 12S Ultra Concept apparently offers two 1-inch sensors with one being a regular sensor found on smartphones, while the one in the middle of the module is paired with the external lenses.
