The Sony IMX989 is said to be 1.5x the actual size of the diagonal measurement of the sensor. However, it is still not clear if Xiaomi will be using the entire sensor surface area.

As for the vanilla 12S variant, it is rumored to feature a 6.28-inch AMOLED 120Hz refresh rate display with two configuration options – 8/12GB RAM + 128/256GB storage.

For the camera setup, it will sport a 50MP main shooter, 13MP ultrawide, and a 5MP macro lens which are technically the same specs as the non-S Xiaomi 12 phone.

One of the biggest differences though is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC for the new S series and the cameras getting the Leica treatment.
