Xiaomi is expected to introduce its new flagship series tomorrow, December 28. We expect to see the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro on stage, while rumors also suggested a Xiaomi 12X is on its way. The phones will have Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets, and today company CEO and co-founder Lei Jun revealed more key features about the duo.
The Xiaomi 12 will ship with 67W fast wired charging and 50W wireless, while the Pro will bring 120W to the table.
Meanwhile the full list of alleged 12 Pro specs leaked online, along with some renders and live photos, suggesting yet another camera redesign that is supposed to house three 50 MP shooters.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro is said to have three 50 MP cameras on the back. That’s right, Xiaomi will one-up Oppo and its two-50 MP solution with a 50 MP sensor for the main, ultra-wide, and telephoto cameras. The one behind the main aperture will be Sony IMX707, which is 1/1.28” in size and will support pixel-binning with one big 2.44µm pixel.
The battery will be a 4,600 mAh single cell that will support Xiaomi’s dual charging that protects it from overheating. Other specs include a 6.73” display with 1440p resolution, up to 120 Hz refresh rate and 480 Hz touch sampling rate.
The biggest unknown is whether the 12 Pro will even make it outside China – the Mi 11 Pro stayed exclusively at home, and if a 12 Ultra is indeed on its way, we do think Xiaomi will copy its strategy from the previous series.
