The Xiaomi 12S Ultra features a Sony IMX989 1″ sensor with a Quad-Bayer pixel array and individual pixel size up to 1.6m. This increases to 3.2m after pixel binning, lowering noise, expanding dynamic range, boosting light collected, and delivering overall superior images in low-light circumstances.

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is the first Android handset that can record and play Dolby Vision HDR video. For ultra-stable performance, the 12S Ultra utilizes HyperOIS, which provides continuous adjustment for movement during video recording. The gap between two frames is used by HyperOIS to move the OIS motor back to its original position, giving each frame a full effective range of stabilisation.
