The AG frosted rear shell is very similar to that of Xiaomi Civi. In fact, its rear camera design also feels similar to the Xiaomi Civi. The Civi’s sensor is just smaller with a few design changes.

Xiaomi 12 series other speculations
On the software end, the Xiaomi 12 series will arrive with MIUI 13 out-of-the-box. Recently, when Lei Jun communicated with netizens, he said that MIUI is making every effort to improve and will definitely do better. According to Lei Jun, “MIUI 13 will arrive at the end of the year and he hopes it will meet everyone’s expectations. Obviously, the MIUI 13 will also debut at the December 28th event.
This new flagship 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.
Furthermore, it will use a high-quality screen that adopts a slightly curved design. These devices will come with batteries between 4700mAh battery and a 5000mAh battery. We also expect the 120W fast charging to surface on this series. However, there should also be 50W wireless fast charging. The large battery will get a full charge within 20 minutes and this will be a new record.
