Over the past few days, there have been several reports regarding the upcoming Xiaomi 12 series. For those who are unaware, Xiaomi has dropped the “Mi” nomenclature. This means that its new smartphone will be Xiaomi 12 and not “Xiaomi Mi 12”. Recently, some renders of the Xiaomi 12 appeared online. These renders are from Letsgodigital and they are based on a recent Xiaomi design patent. The overall design of the renders shows that the front is not much different from the Xiaomi Mi 11 series. The four corners of the display are very round and it uses a curved screen design. Of course, the bezels on all sides are ultra-thin.
According to the render, the Xiaomi 12 series may use the under-screen camera design. On the rear, the camera design is unique. In addition to a huge round main camera, there is also a square periscope telephoto camera below, which looks very much like the rear fingerprint module of an early Android smartphone. Reacting to these renders, Redmi’s product director, Wang Teng, said that this smartphone is too ugly. In his reaction to the renders, he said “Can’t stand it, it’s too ugly”. Judging from Wang Teng’s statement, this current image is nothing like the appearance of the Xiaomi 12. This is the first response from a Xiaomi official regarding the unofficial renders of the Xiaomi 12.
Xiaomi 12 speculations
The Xiaomi 12 device will come with an LTPO adaptive refresh rate screen. This feature will realize an adaptive refresh rate adjustment function between 1 – 120Hz. This feature will also bring an automatic adjustment of the display. This means that when a user activates a high-demanding game, the refresh rate of the display automatically sets to 120Hz. However, when the user is on a social app, it reduces the refresh rate significantly. This will ultimately help in the power consumption of the device. This smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC.
Under the hood, the Xiaomi 12 series will have a large capacity battery. This series is expected to come with a battery capacity of about 5000 mAh. The wireless charging will be only 50W because of the regulations in China. In addition, the charging speed of this smartphone will break through the previous record of the 120W charging. The large battery will get a full charge within 20 minutes and this will be a new record.
In terms of ID design, the Xiaomi 12 series flagship model will also adopt an appearance scheme similar to that of Xiaomi Civi. The Xiaomi 12 series will use a ceramic back shell which is very attractive. In the camera department, this upcoming digital series from Xiaomi will use a 50MP main camera. This is contrary to earlier reports that this smartphone will come with a 200MP Samsung main camera. However, there are reports that this 50MP main camera will adopt an ultra-large bottom solution, supporting 1920fps super slow motion. This smartphone will also come with a 50MP high-quality ultra-wide-angle lens. The periscope telephoto is also a 50MP high-quality lens.
