The Xiaomi 12S series was officially released recently, including three mobile phones, Xiaomi 12S, Xiaomi 12S Pro, and Xiaomi 12S Ultra. In addition, the Xiaomi 12S / Pro series uses environmentally friendly plain skins, and the Xiaomi 12S Ultra uses environmentally friendly silicone skins.
That is to say, this time, the Xiaomi 12S series is not equipped with a ceramic body. However, the next-generation Mi 13 series may still use a ceramic body.
According to Weibo blogger @Digital Chat Station, Xiaomi’s SM8550 (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2) iteration device (Xiaomi 13 series) uses a ceramic back cover, which is OEM by BYD. This is the case for the device, but I don’t know if it will be in the future will be chopped off. After all, the previously revealed Xiaomi 12 Ultra device also uses a ceramic body, but it was eventually cut off by Xiaomi.
Previously, Xiaomi said that the silicone leather material of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra can be refreshed with a light wipe, and it is not easy to yellow and peel after long-term use, and Xiaomi customized the texture of the calfskin head layer to make the Xiaomi Mi 12S Ultra feel more skin-friendly and hold it in your hand.
Not easy to slip and fall off. In addition, Xiaomi material engineers have introduced natural silicon ore raw materials through continuous improvement, so that the environmentally friendly silicone skin of Xiaomi 12S Ultra is environmentally friendly from material selection to production.
Xiaomi has previously used ceramics for high-end flagship mobile phones, including Xiaomi MIX 4 and MIX Fold folding screens. Xiaomi called the MIX 4 “a warm and pure white ceramic body, like a clear moonlight, flowing freely at the fingertips”.
