Key Features of Mi Smart Projector 2 The projector can be connected to any smart TV to cast your movies, streaming, and photos with ease.

Overall, the display quality is decent compared to other projectors in the market.
While most phone companies launch their numeric flagship series phones together, Xiaomi has always been different in this game. Last year, the Mi 11 Ultra was launched on 2nd April, some 3 months after the release of the flagship Mi 11 series. Going by that trend, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra launch seems to be right around the corner this year with rumors putting the date in early May. The Ultra variant has always been the highest of the high end from Xiaomi. So, what’s known about the device thus far? And most importantly, will it be challenging the likes of Pixel 6 Pro and Samsung S 22 Ultra? Let’s find out. Leaks and Rumors about Xiaomi 12 Ultra Design and Build Quality The Ultra series from Xiaomi has always been about innovation and pushing the limits of what’s possible. As a result, each year brought a complete overhaul of the design and build. The Mi 12 Ultra is expected to bring the same innovative elements. Not much is known about the design itself except for a few renders based on leaks and rumors. However, the display leaks suggest that this will be yet another phablet like the phone fitting of the Ultra tag. Read Samsung Galaxy M53 5G: Should you wait for it? The phone itself is slated to sport Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and a ceramic back held together by an aluminum frame. The materials themselves sound premium and given it’s the same ones used on the Mi 11 Ultra, users can rest assured about the build quality. The most notable design change will be on the back, especially with the camera housing. Leaks and rumors suggest that the 12 Ultra will come with either a Quad or Penta camera setup. The usual volume rocker, power button, Type-C port and stereo speakers along with a hybrid sim slot will be all retained at the same position found on the 11 Ultra. Read Vivo iQOO Z6 Review: The Budget Vivo for Camera Enthusiasts On paper, the design and the build quality do justice to the eye-watering price tag of the device. The Display The display is the primary interaction point with a device. Naturally, people paying a premium price expect a premium viewing experience. Xiaomi has always gone all out on the display of their flagship devices. This year, the Mi 12 Ultra display is also expected to be stacked with features like last year’s 11 Ultra. As of right now, the panel will be a 6.6-inch AMOLED 120 Hz panel with 2K resolution. This is just the basic overview of the obvious features. More intrinsic features like Dolby vision, 1700 nits peak brightness, and HDR 10+ content support are expected to trickle down from the 11 Ultra. For the time being, this is all that’s known and it certainly sounds promising. Read OPPO K10 5G Review with Price: What’s New? The Camera The camera of the Mi 12 Ultra is perhaps the most rumored aspect of the device. There has been buzz about the Leica partnership back in December 2021. Then there was a rumor about Samsung's GN5 or HP1 sensors. However, the latest leak from Digital Chat Station suggests a 50 MP main sensor from Sony. And it's not just any existing sensor. In a global first, Sony might introduce their Exmor IMX series of sensors through the 12 Ultra. This is a completely new lens configuration that is yet to be tested in the real world. However, the quad setup looks promising with no lens being less than 48 MP. The front is expected to retain the 20 MP sensor from the 11 Ultra. Users will get all the quirky features like 120x zoom on photos and up to 8K videography. Until there is any hands-on experience, it can only be speculated whether the device will give the S 22 Ultra or Pixel 6 Pro’s computational photography a run for its money. Processor and Performance The Ultra series from Xiaomi has always sported the latest and greatest chipset from Snapdragon. Even though it will be tentatively released some 3 months after the release of the Mi 12 Pro, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset remains the benchmark from the company. So, the 12 Ultra is slated to sport the same. Read Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review: Is it worth consideration? Speaking of the performance of 8 Gen 1, it has 1 3.00 GHz Cortex-X2 and 3 2.50 GHz Cortex-A710 with 4 1.80 GHz Cortex-A510. The spaced-out octa cores help to handle intensive as well as simple tasks in an efficient manner. The 4 Nm design is also an added feature for efficiency. The performance of the device will be lighting quick, to say the least, just like its predecessors. However, it will still take some time before the performance numbers are in. On the OS end, the 12 Ultra will come with MIUI 13 based on Android 12. MIUI has slowly been revamped from its bloatware bogged days to a more functional and unified OS. It is still not going to give a stock Android experience, but it's certainly a utility-focused, easy-to-navigate OS. Battery and Charging Time There has been a lot of speculation about the battery size of the Mi 12 Ultra. Some claimed it will be over 5000 mAh while some put it in the 12 Pro range. The latest news is that it will sport a 4900 mAh battery. Now it might feel a bit small considering the size of the device but the efficient processor should make up for it. Also, the charge time on the device will be insane as 12 Ultra is supposed to support 120 W wired fast charging. Read Xiaomi Redmi K50 Pro 5G Review: What’s new? Price of Xiaomi Mi 12 5G in Bangladesh There isn’t a concrete global launch price for the device as it is still in the pipeline. However, the Indian launch price is expected to be 72,399 Rs which roughly translates to 82,810 BDT (1 INR = 1.13 BDT). The official price tag of Mi 12 Ultra may be different in Bangladesh considering several factors like supply, tax, and company policy. Verdict So the all-important question is, will the Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra be worth it? In a word, yes. This will be a through and through flagship phone with a top-of-the-line processor, battery, and performance. The camera is expected to be a massive jump which might even offset the current industry leaders. Users will be getting what they are paying for, even if certain aspects of the device might be overkill. However, beyond the camera system, there isn’t anything breakthrough coming with the Mi 12 Ultra. And that might be a deal-breaker for some. Read Xiaomi POCO X4 Pro Review: Know the Pros and Cons
Xiaomi is one of the top brands that rule the global smartphone markets with a bunch of launches every year. Especially, the Mi 11 series has added low-budget phones such as Mi 11 Lite along with the flagships like Mi 11X Pro. However, the latest addition to the series, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, released on 29th March 2021 in India, has created a huge buzz as people are struggling to define a place for it. Some refer to the phone as the best; some refer to the worst from Xiaomi. But it's evident that the phone has come with a unique look and some polarizing features. Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra review Design Unlike many other phones, Mi 11 Ultra has a ceramic body. And the outer frame is made of metal. The last Xiaomi phone that had a ceramic body was the Mi Mix 2S. However, the Mi 11 Ultra is more comfortable and feels better than Mi Mix 2S. The phone has the dimension of 164.3 x 74.6 x 8.4 mm and weighs around 234g which makes the phone a little tedious for handling. The front gets a Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

A USB-C port is on the bottom edge. However, the general users will miss two features- a 3.5mm audio jack and a microSD card holder. On the back of the device is a giant camera hump to room some giant lenses. The hump also houses a display with some features of a smartwatch. Read Itel Vision 2 Plus Review: Know the Advantages and Disadvantages Display The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra features the same screen as the standard Mi 11. It is a 6.81-inch, curved-edged AMOLED display. It comes with a high-resolution 1440 x 3200. The display is one of the best of its kind, and the world has seen it until now. Having a 120Hz refresh rate, along with HDR 10+ compatibility and up to 1700 nits of maximum brightness, nothing on the market can compare to it. The back display presented in the Mi 11 Ultra is the same one used in the fitness tracker Mi Band 5. It's like an always-on display comes in handy when the phone is facing screen-down, with choices to show a clock, picture, or custom texts, as well as notifications. It can be triggered with the phone's camera app, allowing users to frame selfies taken with the primary camera. Read:Xiaomi POCO X3 GT Review: Does it Offer Value for Money? For the most part, this display is a novelty, but the additional always-on display is pleasant – and undoubtedly more power-efficient than utilizing the bigger main display for the same reason. Front Camera The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra features three rear cameras: a 50MP f/2.0 primary lens, a 48MP f/2.2 ultra-wide lens, and a 48MP f/4.1 periscope lens. The latter offers 5x optical zoom and 120x digital zoom. Photographs shot with the primary camera look excellent — they are bright as well as vibrant, with natural depth effects and accurate details. Xiaomi's decision to favor sensors' sizes over the resolutions has clearly paid off. Read Moto Edge 20 5G Smartphone Review: Know the Pros and Cons Shots in bright conditions are vivid and colorful, with no artifacts, noise, or evidence of artificial sharpening. But more noise appears in low light, but there's still a lot of detail and some of the most realistic colors I've seen from a phone at night. Night mode typically enhances things even more by adding detail and better exposing specific light sources but be cautious — too much ambient light may overpower the image. Long and close shorts can depict a great number of details, thanks to the robust ultrawide and telephoto lenses. Video recording is possible at up to 8K resolution at 24fps and 4K up to 60fps.

The portrait mode balances the number of shadows and highlights effectively, albeit it blurred the backdrop a little too much by default. However, using the rear display, users can activate rear cameras to take selfies. Though the maneuver can be a bit hard, the captures selfies will outclass any other selfies taken with any other phone.With rear cameras, the depth effect appears more natural, and the colors get more vibrant. The video recording capacity of the front camera is also great, which is 1080p at 6fps. Read: Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro Review: Is it a value for money device? Performance, Software, and UI The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, like other high-end Android phones in 2021, is powered by the strong Snapdragon 888 processor, which is combined with 12GB of RAM and a powerful GPU Adreno 660. These internal features have made the phone powerful enough to handle a wide range of tasks. For what it's worth, the phone doesn't have any difficulties when running games, including COD and PUBG Mobile. As a result, if users don't play for too long at a time, the heat management and performance concerns are unlikely to be a deal-breaker. In addition, the Android 11 based MIUI is used as the phone’s screen. Because the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra boasts two stereo speakers, audio sounds fantastic whether you're listening to Spotify, viewing a movie without headphones, or on a video or voice call. Read Oppo Reno 6 Pro 5G Review: Is it worth it? Battery and Charging While a 5,000mAh battery comes with the phone, which seems huge, it plainly struggles to cope up with the massive 120Hz display, strong CPUs, and back screen and the phone frequently struggles to survive a single day with the battery support. With average use, the phone would be fully depleted within 12 to 15 hours once fully charged. If the phone gets heated, the power consumption skyrockets. However, the powerful 67W superfast comes to the rescue of heavy users. It takes only around 30 minutes to fully charge up the battery. Price of Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra in Bangladesh The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra pro is officially not available in Bangladesh. The 12GB × 256GB variant has been released in India. If converted to BDT, the price stands around 80,158 Taka. The conversion rate here is 1.15. The unofficial price of this device is subjected to change depending upon the seller's rate and tax issues.

However, there are certain drawbacks like the extremely high price and the clunky MIUI software, along with a lack of a guaranteed update. Moreover, the Mi 11 Ultra is not only large but also very unattractive due to the awkward camera module. Altogether, if the price and the giant size of a phone don't bother you much, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra would be a great phone. Read Walton Primo ZX4 Review with Price in Bangladesh
