After much anticipation, Xiaomi has finally introduced its Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro, and 12X smartphones across global markets. The hotly-anticipated flagship smartphones will soon be available in Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro, and 12X pricing and details
The Xiaomi 12 Pro will cost $1,000/€1,000 for the variant with 8 GB of RAM And 256 GB of Internal Storage. There is also a version with 12 GB of RAM with the same 256 GB of Internal Storage. The Mi 11 Pro never reached the global markets, so it’s hard to compare the prices with its predecessor.
The Xiaomi 12 will retail at $750/€800 for the basic variant with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage Storage. Worth noting, that there are also variants with 8 GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Finally, there is a variant with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. In comparison to the Mi 11, the device gets a price hike of around 50 Euros. So Xiaomi is following a tendency of making its devices costlier every year.

There is also one particular option with 256 GB of Internal Storage. Worth noting that these devices haven’t micro SD card slots, so considering the option with 256 GB is a must if you intend to fill the 128 GB available in the base one.
