Xiaomi 12S Ultra was recently unveiled for the Chinese market. However, it didn’t launch globally. The device itself was received as a direct competitor to the iPhone 13 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. However, as it won’t launch globally, the threat isn’t realized. This will change with the next Ultra phone from Xiaomi.

The next iteration of Ultra will be available in our global markets!
This is great news for consumers. Moreover, it will also spark an element of threat and competition to other brands.
