Xiaomi 12X Vs Xiaomi 12 Vs Xiaomi 12 Pro – What’s the difference


Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi release the Xiaomi 12 series in a flagship launch event in China today. At the event that lasted over two hours, the company released other devices like the Xiaomi Watch S1, Xiaomi TWS Earphone 3, MIUI 13, and so on. However, the Xiaomi 12 series was the protagonist of this event. At the event, the company announced three smartphones including Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12 Pro, and Xiaomi 12X.

Xiaomi 12 Pro, Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi 12X

The Xiaomi 12X is the only non-flagship device in the series. This is the first time that Xiaomi is launching a sub-flagship model that is almost entirely based on the digital flagship series. The addition of the Xiaomi 12X is confusing to many people. To this end, there have been questions regarding the positioning of this smartphone. Thus, we decided to look at the major differences between these three devices.

Display

The Xiaomi 12X and Xiaomi 12 come with the same display. In fact, these smartphones are similar in many aspects. They are similar in terms of appearance, display, and even main camera. The only difference between the Xiaomi 12X and Xiaomi 12 is in the processor and wireless charging. With regard to their display, Xiaomi 12X and Xiaomi 12 come with a 6.28 inches screen with a resolution of 1080P. This display has DisplayMate A+ certification and a refresh rate of 120Hz.

As for the Xiaomi 12 Pro, it comes with a larger 6.73-inch second-generation low-power E5 screen with a resolution of 3200 x 1440. Just like the other models, this device supports a 120Hz high refresh rate but it supports LTPO 2.0 smart refresh rate technology. Furthermore, this display also has DisplayMate A+ certification.

Processor

In terms of the chip, both the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro comes with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC. However, the Xiaomi 12X comes with the popular Snapdragon 870 SoC. Although this chip is in the Snapdragon 8 series which is a flagship series, the chip is not entirely flagship. It is a sub-flagship (or pseudo flagship) processor that handles the temperature well. However, its performance is lower than the Snapdragon 888.

Camera

Again, the Xiaomi 12 and 12X come with the same 50MP main camera. They also have a 13MP ultra-wide angle sensor as well as a 5MP telephoto sensor. However, the Xiaomi 12 Pro comes with a 50MP main camera, 50MP super wide-angle sensor, and a 50MP portrait camera with 8K video capacity

Xiaomi 12X

Battery and Charging

Just like the display and camera, the Xiaomi 12 and 12X come with the same 4500 mAh battery that supports 67W charging. However, the Xiaomi 12X does not support wireless charging while the Xiaomi 12 supports 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse charging. As for the Xiaomi 12 Pro, it comes with a 4600 mAh battery that supports 120W wired charging, 50W wireless fast charging, 10W reverse charging.

System

All three smartphones come with MIUI 13 out of the box.
