Google has announced its latest AI model, Gemini 1.0, which appears to be one of the most capable artificial intelligence models. As Google figures…
Why not have the best of both worlds with Xiaomi’s latest concept phone with a full-size Leica lens?
The concept which unfortunately has no plans to go into the market, features, a full-size Leica camera lens to be mounted on the back of a prototype version of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra’s camera is remarkable.
Before you start thinking Xiaomi would be compensating for a shoddy camera on the phone, the 12S Ultra offers a 50.3-megapixel resolution with a stabilized f/1.9 lens.
A stabilized 5x telephoto lens with a 48-megapixel sensor and a 48-megapixel ultrawide frame which offers two Leica branded color processing profiles: Leica vibrant and Leica authentic.
Phone plus camera lens
The phone only released this year comes impressively with a 1-inch type camera sensor on its rear.
The camera sensor is larger than most stand alone phones, which allows Xiaomi’s new concept a lens to match.
Xiaomi teamed up with Leica to develop the interesting camera system used with the Xiaomi Ulta 12S.
Attaching the full size lens turns the smartphone into a professional photo making machine with benefits like depth of field.
Xiaomi will now get a sense of what happens when you merge the innovative muscle of AI photography and the hardware of a stand alone mirrorless camera?
Users can expect the ability to shoot unmatched raw images, with the lens morphing the phone to a full-on camera.
The attachable lens will however be integrated with a camera app.
