The Xiaomi 12 is one of the next big phones to come, but we’ve been hearing relatively few leaks about it compared to something like the Samsung Galaxy S22. Maybe that’s a good thing, because some of the rumors, like a new design, aren’t exactly exciting.

Popular leaker digital chat station shared a picture on Chinese social media platform Weibo, showing the camera bump of the Xiaomi Redmi K30S (a China-only phone), suggesting that the company’s phones may be headed in this direction in the future. are. At least in terms of camera bump design.

The Redmi K30S camera bump will be very familiar to those who know the Xiaomi phone, as it has a huge lens with a smaller lens in addition.


We’ve seen this in the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro (an international version of the K30S, pictured above) as well as some of the company’s coolest devices.

The implication here is that the Xiaomi 12 will use the same design, something commenters (and other news websites) have raised under the post. It’s pretty vague, so take it with a pinch of salt, but the digital chat station is leaker enough that it’s worth paying attention to what they say.

Analysis: Why Xiaomi shouldn’t use this camera bump

The phone’s camera bump says a lot about it, and not just when you’re checking the phone in your hand, but especially when you’re looking down the lens at the subject of a photograph.

If you’ve been looking down the barrel of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra’s massive trio of cameras, you’ll rightly believe that your photos are going to look great. But if you look at the Mi 10T Pro, you’ll see those tiny little lenses under the mains, and aren’t sure they’re really looking at you.

The camera bump of a phone shows its power, and the Redmi K30S’s bump doesn’t look great with all those cluttered lenses. This is why many budget phones with throw-in auxiliary lenses look cheap; Because they use extra small sensors to improve the number of cameras.

Also, we have seen this design before. Fans are left scratching their heads if Apple starts using a several-year-old iPhone design – so what’s different here? We like to see technological progress, not take a step back.

So it is expected that the Xiaomi 12 will not use this Cyclops-i-style rear camera design, but we will have to wait for more leaks to know more.
