At the Snapdragon Technology Summit on December 1, Lei Jun officially announced that the Xiaomi 12 series will be the world’s first Snapdragon 8 Gen1 smartphone. We already know that the company will announce Xiaomi 12X, Xiaomi 12, and Xiaomi 12 Pro at the same launch event. According to previous reports, the company will officially launch these smartphones on December 12. However, there are now reports that Xiaomi will hold a new product launch conference on December 28. Nevertheless, there is no official confirmation for any of these dates.
Previous reports claim that the new Snapdragon 8 Gen1 flagship listed before the Spring Festival is far more than Xiaomi. However, Xiaomi 12 series has entered mass production. Xiaomi 12 can not avoid the camera bulge in its matrix triple camera setup. However, the use of new processing technology makes the look and feel of the AG glass body premium.
Xiaomi 12 Pro will come with a 2K large screen + 100W fast charge + 5x ultra-telephoto. In addition, MIUI 13 has been tested internally on the Xiaomi 12 series phones, and the internal feedback is good.
Gizchina News of the week
Earlier reports show that Xiaomi will launch a new model with the code-name “I3, I3a”. This smartphone comes with the Snapdragon 870 processor and uses a 6.3-inch straight screen design.
In the camera department, the Xiaomi 12 series may have two sets of imaging solutions. One will use the 50MP ultra-large-bottom main camera, and the other will use a 200MP ultra-high-pixel main camera. If the 200MP camera will launch in the Xiaomi 12 series, then next year’s Xiaomi 12 Ultra should have 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.
Xiaomi 12 series will come with 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.
In addition, Xiaomi 12 series will also 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.
