In terms of new smartphone releases, this week has been absurd with the arrival of several new devices from Xiaomi and Asus. Xiaomi announced four new phones, three of which have new XDA forums dedicated to these devices. Asus also announced its ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro. We’re happy to announce that XDA forums are now also open for both phones.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra
When you first see the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, it undeniably makes a statement. Its bold style and huge camera on the back of the phone make it easy to distinguish from a sea of smartphones. Not only does the flagship look good, but it packs a top-of-the-line processor with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, up to 12GB of RAM and a new 3D cooling system inside the phone to keep things cool.
