Over the past few days, there have been a couple of reports regarding the upcoming Xiaomi 12. Based on a recent Xiaomi design patent, Letsgodigital was able to design a possible appearance of the Xiaomi 12. This has been the assumed design of the Xiaomi 12 over the past few days. However, Redmi’s product director, Wang Teng, said that the rumored design is too ugly. In his reaction to the renders, he said “Can’t stand it, it’s too ugly”. This is the first response from an executive of the company regarding the unofficial renders. From his statement, the design of Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship remains under wraps.
However, a new render of this smartphone is now available. The image appears to be a render of the protective film of the Xiaomi 12. From the image, this device will use a curved screen with a center punch-hole design.
Recall that both the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 11 series have the regular model, the Pro model, and the Ultra model. According to reports, the new series should have the Xiaomi 12, the Pro as well as the Ultra model. You will notice that the Xiaomi 12 nomenclature does not have the “Mi” naming. This is because Xiaomi announced a few weeks ago that it will be dropping the “Mi” naming.
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. 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. The main camera is expected to support OIS optical image stabilization.
