Xiaomi could launch the Mi 12 series of devices soon, despite the notion of flagship smartphones being something of the past. This comes as most users believe that mid-range handsets have become better than ever before.
However, in the context of the current market that there is a lack of need for such devices. To cater to such an audience, Chinese giant Xiaomi had launched the Mi 11 Ultra in the Indian market and across certain other markets.
The handset offers a large 1/1.12″ 50MP primary sensor coupled with dual 48MP sensors for ultra-wide angle shots and telephoto capabilities.
To add to its ever-growing portfolio, the company also launched the Mi 11 in China, sporting the Snapdragon 888 SoC with a 108MP triple-camera setup. The cameras might be capable of providing flagship-grade performance.
It has been expected for some time that Xiaomi will soon be launching the Mi 12 Ultra and Mi 12 series of devices in early 2022.
Before the launch of this product, the details about the two devices got leaked today, giving us insight into the devices and offering a view into what to expect.
What Do We Know About the Mi 12 Series?
Xiaomi will launch the Mi 12 series of devices in late 2021 or early 2022 after the successful launch of the Mi 11 series of devices.
Today, XiaomiUI has revealed that the Mi 12 series of devices will most likely debut with a rather massive 200MP front-facing snapper. This comes after rumours of 200MP sensors have done the rounds for the past couple of months.
The publication also claims that the Mi 12 Ultra, which sports the codename Zeus will make use of a 50MP ultra-wide lens and a 50MP periscope lens camera with 10x optical zoom.
This will vary from the base Mi 12, which will come with an ultra-wide sensor and a third macro sensor.
Performance will not be a matter to worry about, since the devices will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC, known widely as the Snapdragon 895 SoC.
Reports have also said that the Mi 12 series will feature LPDDR5X RAM, the launch of which took place this week.
The RAM type will be capable of pushing maximum data rates to 8,533 Mbps in comparison to the 6,400 Mbps previously on offer.
As of now, the Snapdragon 888 SoC and the Snapdragon 870 SoC do not come with support for the new LPDDR5X RAM, so, it is but obvious that the Mi 12 series will make use of a new chip.
