Today, popular Weibo leakster, @DCS released two images of the tempered film of the upcoming Xiaomi 12. According to the images, the Xiaomi 12 will come with a hyperboloid display, a center punch-hole as well as an under-screen fingerprint sensor. The Xiaomi 12 series will come with Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor. Last year, the Xiaomi Mi 11 was the first smartphone to use the Snapdragon 888. This year, Xiaomi 12 may launch the Snapdragon 898 SoC.
Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon 8 series is Snapdragon 898. This chip will use Samsung’s 4nm manufacturing process and will debut in December this year. According to reports, the Xiaomi 12 launch will be like last year’s Xiaomi Mi 11 series. The company will unveil the regular model in December this year. However, the higher Pro model and Ultra model will arrive in March next year.
If this is the case, then the Xiaomi 12 will most likely be the first smartphone to use this chip. With reference to the Xiaomi Mi 11, this new flagship will cost about $650.
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.
