A few months ago, Weibo leaker Digital discussion station had claimed that the fast-growing Chinese phone maker would be the first OEM to release a smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera. The same source has now reiterated this report and has also revealed some additional information about this development.

According to the latest report, the upcoming Xiaomi smartphone will feature an improved dual-curvature display with a single punch hole for the front camera. The new device will also use the SM8450 platform. Now that’s another unannounced product. But recent reports, along with the part number, suggest that it is the successor to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC (which bears part number SM8350).

Xiaomi Mi 12 series could launch Samsung 200MP camera

It’s unclear which next Xiaomi smartphone will launch the world’s first 200-megapixel smartphone camera. But a calculated estimate points to the Mi 12 series. The devices are expected to succeed the company’s flagship Mi 11s launched earlier this year. Xiaomi’s new flagships will likely arrive in the first quarter of next year.
