The extreme performance of the Snapdragon 888 series this year is very good, however, the actual performance is not excellent. This is due to the high heat generation and the unsatisfactory power consumption performance. Therefore, many people are looking forward to the next generation Snapdragon 898 flagship chip. The speculations so far show that the first smartphone with this chip will launch in December. Xiaomi, Samsung, Nubia, and other manufacturers are in the race to launch this chip. However, the Xiaomi 12 is the most likely device that will launch this processor.
In addition to the performance improvement, there were previous reports that the Xiaomi 12 series will improve its camera department. The initial reports claim that the Xiaomi 12 will launch Samsung’s 200MP sensor, which is much anticipated. However, the latest report shows that the standard version of this smartphone will not use a 200MP camera. The latest report shows that this smartphone will come with a 50MP main camera with a size of about 1/1.3x. 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 camera is also a 50MP high-quality lens. The main camera is expected to support OIS optical image stabilization.
Furthermore, the Xiaomi 12 will not adopt the multi-camera stacking scheme but choose a better quality triple camera setup. From the details above, all triple cameras are flagship sensors. As for the 200MP camera, it may arrive with the Xiaomi 12 Pro series. There is no authentic report regarding this large pixel sensor. However, the regular model in this flagship series will not use this sensor.
Xiaomi 12 other 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.
