The new models will sport the yet-to-be-announced A15 Bionic chip. Thus, the iPhone 13 will become the world’s most powerful smartphone series, taking the competition with Android to a new level. But Android camp manufacturers are not going to sit idle. Qualcomm, which is the only chip maker that can design chips to compete with Apple, is going to launch the new-gen Snapdragon 898 chip at the end of year. So the main question is who will debut it? Xiaomi Mi 12?
Compared with the current Snapdragon 888 Plus, there are still many improvements in performance. That’s why we guess the Snapdragon 898 will exceed 1 million scores mark in AnTuTu.
If looking at the practice of past two-three years, the Xiaomi Mi 12 will be the first to come with the Snapdragon 898 chip. Moreover, if believing in some rumors, the phone will hit the market sooner, in November.

Xiaomi Mi 12 Camera
However, apart from the Snapdragon 898 chip, the Xiaomi Mi 12 will also bring more upgrades in imaging. Today, a well-known Weibo tipster disclosed some news about the machine. He revealed that the engineering version of the Xiaomi Mi 12 is currently testing three main camera systems.
As the blogger mentioned, the Xiaomi Mi 12 will still adopt a three-camera solution, without a “make-up” lens. The main camera still has a 50MP resolution and has a super large bottom. Apart from this, the ultra-wide angle also has a 50MP resolution and the periscope telephoto lens has the same 50MP resolution.
On the whole, Xiaomi Mi 12 will bring good performance in all aspects of shooting. At the same time, the main camera-level telephoto lens can bring a much stronger long-distance shooting experience than previous models.
By the way, we have also heard the Xiaomi Mi 12 may debut a 200MP lens. But we guess, even if this news is accurate, it will be available only on the top model.
In addition to the strong imaging performance, the high-quality screen that has been welcomed on Xiaomi Mi 11 will also be further upgraded. Particularly, the Xiaomi Mi 12 series will come with an LTPO adaptive refresh rate screen. It can realize the adaptive refresh rate adjustment function of 1-120Hz. The screen will switch between various refresh rates according to the use scene, taking into account the needs of high refresh rate and low power consumption.
